Parkour Philosophy

  1. We must put ourselves through challenges that force us to find the physical and mental strength to succeed.
  2. During training no one is allowed to complain or be negative.
  3. Few excuses are allowed. At the same time everyone must have knowledge of their own limits.
  4. Respecting ones own physical health and well being is fundamental to training. Any injuries resulting during or after the execution of a movement is deemed a failure.
  5. A movement executed only once is not an achievement. Only with repetition is a challenge considered complete.
  6. Humility, no one is to act superior over another. Or to show off a move only in front of someone who could not do it.
  7. If any athlete claims to have executed a difficult and dangerous challenge that should not be attempted unaided, they must prove their claims by doing the challenge again. Anyone who lied violates the principle of humility.
  8. While we train in groups, everyone must progress and develop independently.
  9. Every athlete must encourage others and show confidence through their behavior.

Training style of our Coaches

You can't create a strong body from a weak mind. Building strength and skill requires a level of understanding and dedication that must first be built from within. You can expect a lack of drilling, repetition, and demanding orders from a parkour coach. A parkour coach attempts to personify the mental challenge being had, with a physical challenge to overcome.

Parkour is not something to be rushed. It requires patience. If a coach tries to rush a student into a movement they are not mentally ready for that is when injuries occur. A parkour coaches job is to guide their students, not to order them around. Everyone develops differently and must learn differently. Therefore even in groups you can expect to see a lot of individual attention. With that being said the class does not stop for one person. In moments of individual attention our coaches will be able to see who is capable of operating independently and who requires a more guided approach. Those who learn to operate independently stand a higher chance of moving to the more advanced programs. Those who don't will remain in the more guided programs.
