What We Teach

Using our state of the art gym we have developed a safe environment for kids and adults to learn Parkour.  Our focus will be on building strength, flexibility and agility so students are able to efficiently move through over obstacles. Using a curriculum developed by the World Freerunning and Parkour Federation, our certified staff will teach the fundamentals as well as more advanced movements.
