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.

European Girls Parkour Day 2014

This weekend, I had the pleasure of joining about 15-20 women from all over France (+ one from Switzerland!) for the third annual European Girls Parkour Day. It was a two-day event hosted by Saïmiri Parkour in Mulhouse, France with all sorts of fun, training, challenges, and delicious flammekeuche (or however you spell it)! I got there just in time for the afternoon session on Saturday. I was a little nervous because I didn’t know a single person there and…

While waiting I see a group of guys in parkour shirts and sweats, before I know it I am heading back to Colorado Springs to…

Top 10 Parkour Games for Kids

I’ve been teaching kids parkour for the last two years.  Here is a top ten list of games that I have used in parkour classes for kids ages 5-12.  I believe that parkour should be fun, and kids love to play.  Because most of these games are geared towards non-stop motion, they can be quite strenuous and make great warm ups or end of training conditioning for traceurs and traceusses of all ages. The goal is to keep players engaged…

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
