PKAB 2015

Earlier this summer I got the opportunity to go out to Calgary, Alberta to teach a workshop and judge the freestyle component of the competition they were hosting at their annual national jam, PKAB. I had never been to Calgary before and I was excited at the prospect of exploring a new place, meeting the parkour community out there and learning new things about movement and coaching. To make this trip even better, one of my best friends, Ethan, who also happens to…

Etre-Fort Clothing Review

The growth of parkour as a sport seems to be happening quicker than ever before.  Parkour gyms are being established around the world, parkour events are becoming bigger and more accessible, and the technical and mental level of practitioners doesn’t appear to be heading towards a plateau anytime in the near future. One of the most interesting facets of growth I’ve seen parkour go through in the last few years is the rise of the parkour clothing company.  As parkour…

Beach Days, Los Angeles and The Takeover

Winter training: a guide to cold-weather parkour training

It’s getting to be that time of year again, the time of year where most traceurs go into hibernation due to the winter months. The lucky traceurs who live in California, Texas, Florida, or other relatively warm areas don’t have to worry about cold temperatures, or snow, inhibiting their training. Unfortunately, I am not one of those lucky traceurs. Here in Canada, I’ve had to deal with the cold since I’ve started training. During that time, I’ve heard a variety of…

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
