WHAT IS PARKOUR

Parkour is a method of physical training that develops one’s ability to overcome obstacles (both physical and mental). It involves movement that will help if one is in a reach or escape emergency situation. Underpinning this is a philosophy  of altruism and useful strength, longevity, self-improvement and self-understanding. “Parkour is: a method of physical training, which allows us to overcome obstacles in urban and natural environments.” – David Belle  “Parkour is a way for our bodies to face and move in and around obstacles in our environment … It’s about tackling fears because obstacles don’t always appear as we imagine, and it’s also about attaining self-knowledge.” Parkour embodies a “You vs. Yourself” mentality which allows students to participate without stress of comparing with peers. It encourages creativity, which evokes curiosity and critical thinking habits. At our school, we construct new obstacles and stations each day, always entertaining the mind and allowing our students to form their own path. When first beginning, students learn the basics of balance and coordination. As a whole-body physical discipline, they develop strength and an understanding of their limitations.

 

WHY PARKOUR

Parkour is an amazing activity for anyone who struggles with coordination, body awareness, self-confidence, spatial awareness, and participation in traditional sports and activities. Parkour combines fundamental movements so that the participant can fall safely, move through varying environments successfully, maneuver different obstacles easily, and transfer these skills to every other area of their life.
