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...

Basic/beginners training provided, but ALL LEVELS present and WELCOME!
Oh, and it's FREE, in case you were wondering...

Minors and Newcomers pls. check this frequently asked questions about liability. =)

Hungover and lagging see you guys soon

Please don't hit the school before we are all there and get inside... we are facing a residential neighborhood, home of certainly very zealous and "quick dialing" citizens.

Let's call it the flag pole for now.

Looks to be enough space for a warm up

Get to the first spot at noon for this. Don't be late or risk having to search for us. Call when you are alone and lost (9496779507).

Look at all those spots...I'm starting to miss GWHS, I might train solo, since I haven't trained in a while, I want to maybe do some serious solo training.
