I've been relatively quiet about this up until now, but I suppose it's about time to start getting the word out there.  We are working towards opening a parkour/freerunning/martial arts/dance gym up in the Minneapolis area of Minnesota.  Just yesterday we registered with the state so the Fight or Flight Academy llc. is now officially an entity.  We've put in proposals through our broker for 2 different warehouse spaces, both around 7,500 sq. ft.  We're talking to 3 different banks about getting a loan.  And we have our insurance agent looking for the best fit for our insurance needs right now.

Once everything comes together, we will be opening in September for open gyms and classes will start in October.  We will be having a grand opening celebration in late September which will be tied directly to the Minnesota Monstrous Jam (which we haven't scheduled yet because we've been waiting for things to finish up with the gym first.)  I've been teaching at a local gymnastics school for the last 3 years and my program is successful enough to support our own space so it's time for this to happen.  This will be the first gym of it's kind in the Midwest and we're very excited about it!

We're working on the website right now, but if you want to keep up with the news of the gym, you can "like" our facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fight-or-Flight-Academy/224573700891767 .  We're looking forward to having a successful gym to help move the disciplines ahead in the U.S.  Also we're looking forward to meeting many more people who will hopefully be visiting us from all over the US and the world!
