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...

To the new folks: don't be surprised if you're a bit sore for 3 days afterwards. Ibuprofen, contrast baths (hot then cold) and plenty of food and sleep will have you back up and at it! It may take a few months before you don't need to worry about this happening. All in the name of being strong and being useful!

Yes, depending on weather, tourist traffic and events in the area: the best bet is the *very* end of Van Ness.
