"Once is never"...Let's to do this again!
The progression and skills will benefit from it, and coherently, we'll repeat this as all the other sessions.

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...
We do not expect problems or difficulties, but we know fall back locations at driving distance.
Capuchino is a very large spot, protected from outside view, but with a lot of ongoing construction. We'll be meeting in front of the main entrance (by the tennis courts), exactly where pinned on the Gmap linked above, at 12:00/12:10; feel free to take a look around, if you get there earlier, but AS ALWAYS avoid roofs or trespassing into buildings.
ALL LEVELS PRESENT AND WELCOME!
