Parkour

Run, climb, vault, swing, roll, jump, and flip from obstacle to obstacle in one of our parkour classes. Parkour integrates the use of momentum, power, precision, and balance as participants aim to get from point A to point B as efficiently as possible. This class is ideal for students seeking expression, fast-paced thinking and movement and aims to teach them to overcome mental and emotional obstacles as well as physical barriers.

 

Testimonial

"Parkour helped me get over my fears and become a freer person. There were many things that I previously refused to do because I was too nervous of the possible consequences. Once I started learning parkour from someone who truly understands the physical and mental side of it, I was able to commit and see my boundaries. I sincerely thank you for your help." — HANK GOLDBERG, 12
