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'm out of this unfortunately, but I encourage you to train no matter what...

I was feeling grouchy and under the weather the other night, after a long/tiring week, but I forced myself to train 45 packed minutes, go home, take a steaming shower and some Ibuprofen.The following day I was swimming in Carmel.

Not sure that I'd have been equally regenerated by a nap on the couch.

...if peeps think it's too hot to come out and train, just come over and take a dip. It's beautiful tonight.

People are splashing like in Copacabana...

..since the "official" Friday session is taking a break, people training on Friday nights are encouraged (as always) to post on the Last Minute Training thread.

...might be a little late, but I'll definitely be there.

I suggest to warm up at the parking lot, and move then to the Administration building (along Holloway) to begin with.
