Parkour Class

What is Parkour?

Parkour is a non-competitive discipline based on utility, progression, and durability in all aspects of physical, mental, and emotional. Physically, Parkour is a natural method of training the human body to efficiently go from point A to point B making use of the environment that’s around at any given time. It requires neither a specific structure nor accessory for its practice. The body is the only tool. It’s an athletic discipline accessible to all because it combines all the natural skills of the human body: running, jumping, climbing, etc. Parkour is about being able to face the obstacles with which you are presented, whether they be in the natural environment or the urban environment, in a search for the movement that combines effectiveness and control. Disciplined intelligent training is necessary as the aim is to sustain throughout life.

Parkour is NOT a competition. It is NOT about being flashy, extreme, or rebellious. It is NOT about doing tricks or flips. Parkour presents a mindset of doing what is useful to become useful and to progress and sustain in all aspects. With these minds and disciplined training, Parkour helps people in their life’s journey, allowing them to overcome all obstacles that enter their path and help others to do the same.

Start Training!

The best way to get started in Parkour is to get out there and try some stuff. Start small with just finding different areas with rails, walls, trees, anything that can be used as an obstacle and figure a way to get over or around it. Get used to this type of movement and how your body moves. Feel how it is to jump over, climb up, grab, and/or crawl on these obstacles.

Keep in mind, there is no one set of techniques that encompasses how you have to move and no one way to do something as no obstacle is the same and no person is the same. Do not start with anything big and dangerous. You can easily get injured and also cause long-term damage to your body. At first, it may be difficult to see opportunities to train in your environment. Don’t hold back…get out there. The more you just get out and train, the more your “parkour-vision” will increase and you’ll begin to see lots of opportunities arise everywhere you look. It’s not uncommon for people to suddenly realize that the walkways, paths, and other spots they usually glance over every day have great potential for training.
