Event Description

WE HAVEN'T TRAINED HERE IN QUITE SOME TIME, BUT IT USED TO BE A GOOD SPOT. IF IT WILL BE, WE MIGHT "REPEAT", IF NOT THERE ARE GOOD TRAINING GROUNDS CLOSE BY TO EXPLORE.

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

Basic Training 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!

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

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

Another mild storm is supposed to hit the Bay Area, but skies should start clearing up by the early AM Sunday.
We will update with status within Sunday 10AM.

PLEASE RSVP (even "tentative") BY SATURDAY OR THIS SESSION WILL BE CANCELED!

Chance of heavy rain is slight, but we'll reschedule to SFState, because this place gets real slippery, and it's better enjoyed in a bright sunny day anyway. :)

Looks like there's a 70% chance of rain tomorrow at noon :(

Are we still having a session? Do we revisit tomorrow morning?
