Event Description

We'll be meeting at Noon - warm-up/stretch - at 12:30pm we'll move to the Canyon for some nature techniques in addition to climbing and precision work on the nearby rock formation - 1:30/45pm back for skills and technique training (thus, if you are late and don't see us, just come to the rocks, or warm up and wait for us ). Absolute beginners/newcomers shouldn't be late!


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

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...

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

Ha! And it's free, in case you were wondering...

I will be there in the morning, plus one beginner! But you already knew half of that... I am also happy to lead the warmup after so long away.

Sorry for the late reply guys. Hopefully will make it, AND I will make sure to RSVP earlier in the future!

I find it personally disappointing that week-after-week participants to the Sunday sessions are:

- deciding last minute they will show;

- RSVPing (maybe and eventually) with great delay, or not at all.

The only ones systematically volunteering, not only their Sunday time, but also their commitment to inform fellow practitioners of their presence, are the organizers.

Please EVERYBODY thinking of attending: RSVP in due time (2-3 days ahead) at least with a "maybe" (which may encourage other to do the same).
