Saturday Open Parkour Class For Adults
Train under the watchful eye of one of our American Parkour Certified Trainers. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, this class gives you the flexibility to work on the most basic or advanced movements you would like.
Always wanted to learn a back flip? There is only one answer to that question. Coaches guide you through the progressions for back flips, front flips, side flips, aerials, wall flips and so many more! If you’ve never done anything acrobatic in your life, you’ll start with the basics of tumbling and freerunning like cartwheels, rolls, and palm spins as you progress towards the more advanced acrobatics. If you’ve mastered the skills already mentioned, let us challenge you with new variations and more complex tricks!
If you’re looking for a way to get into parkour training but can’t make the Foundations schedule, the Beginner’s Drop-In is the place for you. Every class we’ll go over the basics and help you perfect your technique on the most important fundamentals of parkour. If you’ve never done anything remotely parkour-like in your life, or if you’ve been training for a while and just want to brush up on some basic skills, come check it out! This class meets Saturdays at 2pm to 3pm
