Event Description

Please -anybody reading this and coming- sign-up and/or RSVP! (If you don't, you may not find anyone...) 

Couple of changes with the new season: training location will be SF State University, BUT, depending on current weather conditions we'll be meeting either at the usual 19th Ave. at Holloway (parking) spot, or at Hensill Hall (a rare, albeit limited, outdoor covered spot, which allows for dry training even in pouring rain).

Try to show up not later than 7:30PM. Feel free to warm up jogging between the two spots until you meet somebody...


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 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.

Friday January 6 we got booted from SFSU parking lot (!) for doing "that" (hopping on a short wall in a pathetic attempt to warm up), for which I could apparently "sue the school, if I'd break a leg".

I assume maybe due to Osteoporosis?

Applied this:

Next session will be at Hensill Hall to cool down spot.

That 12 ft wall in the quad took all the skin off the last digit on three fingers from each hand.  Blistered into callouses.  


I love this session.
