What Is Parkour?
Parkour is not just the huge jumps, flashy flips, and rooftop craziness you see on YouTube or in the media. Not to say that those things are not or cannot be parkour, but the ability to do these things are not necessarily the goal of parkour.
Parkour is about trying to improve your own self in every way possible, every day. It is a discipline and a lifestyle, a philosophy and a fitness program. It's about strength both in the mind and the body, and about the spirit of helping yourself and others to find happiness.
Our mission is to help people learn the discipline of movement known as parkour, also known as freerunning or L'art du déplacement. There are many physical, mental and spiritual benefits to parkour and we hope to help others discover them as we have. We don't just teach a catalog of movements - we teach the ideas, concepts and philosophies behind the physical work as well. We also hope to correct the multitude of misconceptions and misunderstandings of parkour and its real practitioners.
Parkour Is For Everyone
People of any background or experience, size and age can begin training parkour. It is about developing yourself and becoming better in any way that you can. We employ safe progressions in our classes and encourage our students to work at their own level, at their own pace. Practitioners of parkour should never push themselves to impress or show off to others; you have nothing to prove to us and we will not be impressed with showing off.
