Event Description

MEETING POINT: map here!

This training will take place also with pouring rain (see below).

Basic/beginners oriented 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...

might have left a sweaty blue shirt inside of a grey sweatshirt at the campus, any chance someone picked it up?

...sorry guys!

There's been a mistake in calendaring: this is clearly a "Sunday Basic training", hence it will be on Sunday, December 2nd!
No worries, in case of rain, because Hensill Hall is a rare, albeit limited, outdoor covered spot, which allows for dry training even in pouring rain.

Try to show up within 12:30pm, because it may be a bit shorter than usual.

Questions: 1. Is it gonna be on Saturday instead of Sunday this time? 2. What if it rains?

Just want to be sure it's going to be on Saturday.

I'm new to this but i'll probably attend if the weather is on the bright side.

Awesome sauce.  See you lot there!

...since last week apparently didn't work out too well, and given the gloomy weather forecast, we'll be re-repeating this one.
