BApk Session Organizer's Workshop at Kezar Stadium

September 8, 2012 from 12pm to 3pm
BApk is looking for volunteers to help organize beginner (and other) sessions, and we are offering a free training workshop!  We are not expecting you to be a coach with a lesson plan, but rather someone who provides basic structure in the absence of a coach; someone who can guide people through the steps of a basic training session.  If you decide that you enjoy being a session leader, we can offer you further training to become a coach. This workshop is open to the public and everyone is…See More

Bay Area People Should Check Out Seattle

I've been in Seattle for two weeks and it has rained literally every day.  However, there were some partly sunny patches in which I got some fun stuff done.  There are several great training spots including Freeway Park and Gasworks Park where you will not get bothered at all.…

Celebrate Parkour Community Diversity

Tracers in the SF Bay Area are among the luckiest in the country. Not only do they benefit from an abundance of diverse training grounds, they also benefit from an abundance of diverse approaches to the discipline of Parkour. These practitioners are privileged enough to have two large distinct communities within the Bay Area that hold regular training sessions. Each community plays host to a variety of personalities and methodologies, and each caters to a different mindset. While the… Continue

Jump Sky High!

Recently I went to Sky High Sports in Santa Clara and I highly recommend it. It was only $9 for an hour of jumping which turned out to be more than I bargained for. I got on the trampolines and started bouncing all over the place continually. I went up and down as high as I could, did front flips, back flips, jumped off the walls as far as I could, and finally I was completely exhausted. I had to bend over and take a breather. My lungs burned,… Continue

How to Practice Parkour: A guide for those about to take the first step

Before beginning to train Parkour, you must consider your physical condition. You should not attempt any technique that your body cannot handle the consequences of. You need to either build strength, endurance, speed etc. before you start training, or progress at such a slow rate that your body is conditioned by your training process.



There are many different ways to train Parkour, most of which are valid and useful depending on the practitioners intentions. One of the original… Continue

The Importance Of BAparkour

Our name is a little deceiving. We are called Bay Area Parkour, but in reality we have the best representation of active practitioners in the city of San Francisco. We have an amazing group. We help each other, we look out for each others safety, and we train together...a lot!



Last weekend at the end of our session, we were roaming and jamming. I performed very technical and slightly dangerous cat leap. Dimitri, who is always eager and confident, gave it a try. He came up short being… Continue

Hello Kaos,

My name is Josh (online alias is Haku, if you prefer). I have heard a lot about you and have seen you in the "Point B" documentary recently. I've seen your name ever since I started Parkour a few years ago! I've always wanted to meet you, but I think due to the...SF Parkour community (SFParkour.com) "politics", I haven't been able to really talk to you.

You are in the San Francisco area, correct? In the documentary there was a segment of you hosting a class, and was wondering when you held those classes, and other sessions. It would be great to meet you!

Thanks!
-Josh (Haku)

I'm pretty sure I have more than 75 :D I just want to get this out of the way so I can train for the sole purpose of the discipline itself...
