What is Parkour?
Parkour (also known as free running) is a training discipline using movement through space. Practitioners aim to get from A to B in the most efficient way possible. This is done using only the human body and the surroundings for propulsion, with a focus on maintaining as much momentum as possible while still remaining in control. Parkour combines ideas from dance/breakdancing, martial arts, stuntwork, acrobatics and gymnastics with flow and a runner’s drive.
In our fun setting that puts safety first (using mats, foam blocks, balance beams, slacklines and and other equipment) we acquire physical and mental abilities such as:
- Tumbling (Breakfalls, Cartwheels, Rolls, Ukemi)
