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...

Hey folks! After a looooong break, I'm finally coming back! And I've got company: I'm bringing my 3.5 year-old daughter with me :D

I've been training her on the arts of landing softly and I think she's ready to try out a bit of parkour! So this session may be short for me, but if it works out, I'll be able to get back into the practice ;)

See you tomorrow!
