My friends and I have actually talked about this quite a bit. We even tried to come up with possible classes that the practitioners could take (philosophy, nutrition, conditioning, technique, etc). I believe this has been discussed here before and most people were against it, claiming it goes against the process of finding your own way and progressing at your own pace. It's definitely a cool concept though...for example, replacing the stairs with precision planks, getting into class by wallclimbing, stuff like that (of course there would be a way for injured practitioners to get in too). It might happen if parkour becomes a mass discipline and actually leads into direct career paths. If not, I doubt many people would leave "regular" school when they could just train in their free time like most of us do now.
Power, balance, freedom.
