Event Description

Please -anybody reading this and coming- sign-up and/or RSVP!


...we'll be meeting exactly where described on the map above, and we'll be warming up at the nearby WW2 battery; where we'll spend most of the time; try to show up not later than 7:30.

Session description:

This training provides a healthy and motivated atmosphere for existing practitioners to progress their parkour, and to do this in a safe, peer-reviewed, no-BS and no-sitting around way. :)

The goal of these sessions is to enhance the effectiveness of our parkour practice, through advancements in precision, speed, control, power, stamina, resistance, determination and confidence. The mean to achieve this, will be perfecting short combinations of basic movements through intense repetitions in order to ultimately trigger instinctive reactions and reduce transition time.

The more experienced practitioners will set a positive example by focusing on a thorough warm up, dynamic stretching, cardio-vascular resistance and precise repetition of movement. There will be no showing off, rather humbly passing on of knowledge, in a group effort to keep up the pace of the drills and advance together. Also we will try to maintain our focus on uninterrupted motion from drill start to finish (A-to-B). All while keeping safety as paramount.

While there may be different physical or technical skill levels represented at these sessions, everyone will keep an eye out for anybody needing advice or encouragement. Absolute novices, with no previous experience in group training of parkour or other physical disciplines, are advised to consider first beginning with a Basic Training (Sundays).

The perception that parkour practice is fun, yet being "a discipline, not a game" will be tangible and is required.

Everybody pls. check this frequently asked questions about liability.

I agree and have made sure my friend understands the policy regarding non-tracer cameras. Last thing he wants is to make anyone feel uncomfortable.

While it's not included in this event's description and depends on the consent of the attendees, I think it's worth considering the regular training session policy regarding non-tracer cameras:
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.

Just letting everyone attending know, my buddy will be joining us with his fancy new camera in tow. He's taken an interest in the discipline and wants to document how we train so he'll just be hanging back and snapping off shots while we do our thing.

I don't know if I can make it to San Mateo. PM me with your address and I'll see how close I can get to you with public transportation.

Southbay guys looking for a carpool? If you can make it to San Mateo, I've got 3 seats in my car since my bro is coming.

I'm down for next Friday.
I feel like I could be training harder, and this seems like the place.

SFSU looks like a great place, as well.

...about 15 people showed up at this first 'experiment'. Not too shabby.
A big shout-out to Andrey for leading the session, guiding us around, and keeping us motivated.

Next week we'll simply repeat this, just to make sure that it's ingrained in the training routine...

Alright I'll keep an eye out for it, thanks Giorgio!
