FALL Parkour

Unknown-1

 

What is it?

In Parkour, a runner tries to get from point A to point B as quickly and as efficiently as possible. .

Parkour requires...consistent, disciplined training with an emphasis on functional strength, physical conditioning, balance, creativity, fluidity, control, precision, spatial awareness, and looking beyond the traditional use of objects.

Parkour movements typically include...running, jumping, vaulting, climbing, balancing, and quadrupedal movement. Movements from other physical disciplines are often incorporated, but acrobatics or tricking alone do not constitute parkour.

Parkour training focuses on...safety, longevity, personal responsibility, and self-improvement. It discourages reckless behavior, showing off, and dangerous stunts.

Parkour practitioners value...community, humility, positive collaboration, sharing of knowledge, and the importance of play in human life, while demonstrating respect for all people, places, and spaces.

Classes

PK Mini: 4-5 year olds. Parkour Mini features a minitaure version of the Parkour classes, with obstacles and techniques adjusted to fit for the young ones. Students will learn to safely fall, run, jump, climb, and vault over obstacles sized for their age.

PK1: 6-10 year olds. In parkour, students will learn to safely fall, run, jump, climb, and vault over obstacles and solve puzzles in recreations of urban environments. The class features a combination of gymnastics, track & field, and martial arts. Students learn and practice skilled movements that help them efficiently pass over, climb, and jump through various sizes and shapes of obstacles. They will solve a puzzle: using parkour to pass through a timed obstacle course. Students will be challenged to "think outside of the box" while having fun and staying fit!

PK2: 11 and up. In this class, students will learn more advanced parkour skills and attempt larger, more challenging obstacle courses and puzzles. Primary focus of this class is complex skills, connecting movements and perfecting parkour techniques. Obstacles are bigger and students will learn how to use their body to move through their environment in creative and new ways.
