Launched in France and the UK, I refer to parkour as "applied gymnastics" where you turn your environment into an obstacle course. A park bench becomes a vaulting obstacle, a fence rail becomes a balance beam, fallen logs are hurdled!
Basically it is exactly what WE did as kids, running, climbing and jumping over anything in the way on our way to the playground, where we did more of the same!
What we teach in parkour are SAFE landing techniques, proper vaulting, climbing, hurdling, landing, rolling, tumbling, swinging and more. It is EXACTLY like Ninja warrior meets Assassins Creed meets Mario Brothers! A perfect channel for boys and girls with energy and enthusiasm, ages 7-13. Class is 55 minutes and is $80 a month.
*Annual membership fee is automatically added for new students and each fall for returning students. Membership fee includes a Jungle Gym T-shirt! Our calendar year is Sep 1-Aug 31. It is $35 for one, $15 for the second child. Membership drops to $25/$15 for Winter, $20/$10 for Spring and $10 per child in Summer.
√ We do not adjust or prorate your fees for missed classes, but we have a liberal make-up policy so you can make up missed classes.
We now have a lot of older parkour athletes ages 14-18 who already have their skills and just want to practice in a safe environment, so we are creating Monday Night Free Running for older and experienced "traceurs" to practice their moves. $50 a month, this open gym time runs from 8:00 pm-8:55 pm.
