Basic/beginners training provided, but ALL LEVELS present and WELCOME!

This location can be a little out of way if unfamiliar with the Presidio, so consider RIDES!
Easy parking at the Presidio YMCA Main Post gym, right there...

Warm up (and latecomers meeting) 50 yds away at this WW2 battery:


Session description:
This training provides a healthy atmosphere for new practitioners to start parkour, and for everyone to advance in a safe way. This is achieved in several ways. Because safety is paramount, a positive example is set by the more experienced practitioners. This means you will always see warm ups, stretching, and slow progression of movement. It also means there will be no showing off, which leads to copy-cat behavior and subsequently injuries. Rather, people pass on knowledge humbly in a group effort to advance. While there may be several different skill levels represented at these sessions, everyone keeps a beginner mentality.

Another key aspect in this beginner atmosphere is the absence of media. There are no camera crews or reporters to get in the way or cause people to feel self-conscious. While individuals may bring cameras, they should politely ask before filming/shooting anyone other than themselves.

The perception that parkour practice is (and should be) fun, yet being "a discipline, not a game", is set from the beginning. While the atmosphere is relaxed and can be playful at times, horseplay is discouraged, and teasing, mocking, and cliquish behaviors are not tolerated...

Definitely one of the top three jam spots in the Bapk quiver of locations.

First timers to stuntmen all can find something to tickle their fancy.
