What is Parkour? (ages 7-15)
Parkour is the art of overcoming obstacles as swiftly and efficiently as possible using one’s mind and body. The fundamentals include running, jumping and climbing. Building on these fundamentals we learn to improve our ability to pass over, under, around and through obstacles with more complex movements. Parkour is a system of training that improves strength, speed, agility, coordination, stamina, endurance, and precision. It offers a full body workout at any level of experience, and improves one’s ability to move, to harness confidence and change how one views the world.
