Only RSVPs will be contacted with final location, so please make sure you'll sign up in due time.

Now please read the session description.


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 (see examples). 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 while the practice of parkour is fun, it's "a discipline, not a game" will be tangible and is required.

Everybody pls. check this frequently asked questions about liability.

I'll know if I'll make it only at 6:00PM, so please rsvp and I will update you around that time. I would suggest the usual meeting at Hensill Hall, SFSU at 7:00pm, as a reference.

The session will start at SFSU at 7:00pm, meeting at Hensill Hall and going from there. Hopefully we'll see more confirmation as the day develops (including mine... lol!).

Won't be able to go tonight unfortunately. :( Sore legs from a workout two days ago and a headache from lack of sleep might be a recipe for disaster

Who else?

Meet at Hensill Hall and go from there.
