Lessons from the 2014 North American Women’s Parkour Jam

This year’s North American women’s jam in Toronto, hosted the last weekend in July by The Monkey Vault Movement Training Centre, looked to be the largest parkour girls gathering yet—but the sheer number of women at the jam wasn’t the only reason why I was so honored to train with some of the best athletes on our continent. One of the supremely talented Canadian traceuses, Amanda Voll, gave me some great advice about how to approach my training (I’ve heard…

We are revamping our program to give more back to the clubs and…

“June 7th marked the 20th anniversary of the North Carolina Parkour Jams. Hosted in Winston-Salem by the local traceurs of Triad Locomotion, NCPKJXX was an event filled with fun, community, and movement.

APK is holding tryouts for the 2022 WCT Season! If you're interested in trying out, you'll need to do the following.

Create a Tryout Video (Details for that are on our YouTube LINK IN BIO)

Upload that Video to Google Drive and Share that video/folder with apksubmission@gmail.com

The deadline for submissions is the Ides of March (if you don't know when that is, better find out)

QUICK CLARIFICATION FOR OUR APK FANS
This does NOT mean we are scrapping all our previous athletes, in fact you'll most likely see most of them again (because we have some BEASTS on our team) but we do want the best athletes for our teams (as the brothers say, they want to see the best people chase). So holding tryouts opens the doors for new athletes to enter the sport 

Now Good Luck! And remember, Don't Get Caught
