Event Description

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

Easy parking at our meeting point by the Presidio YMCA Main Post gym. NOTE! This location can be a little out of way if unfamiliar with the Presidio, so review the MAP!

ALSO, THIS SUMMER: AVOID MARINA GREEN BOULEVARD DUE TO THE AMERICA'S CUP (sailing) RACES. DRIVE LOMBARD OR (EVEN BETTER) GEARY AND ARGUELLO TO GET TO THE PRESIDIO.

 

-THERE IS NO WATER AND VERY LITTLE SHADE AT THIS LOCATION. PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE: BRING A BOTTLE AND APPLY SUNBLOCK!-

Warm up (and latecomers meeting) 100 yds away at this WW2 battery:


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...

@Mason: not at all, but if you're a minor, you need parent's consent.
