Parkour

with Ethan Young, A.D.A.P.T. Certified Instructor

Parkour is an explosive art of movement, a discipline that enables the practitioner to travel freely through and over any terrain they may encounter, and the world's fastest growing 'free sport'. Parkour focuses on developing the fundamental attributes required for movement, including balance, strength, dynamism, endurance, precision, spatial awareness and creative vision. Beyond this simple explanation, however, parkour is a discipline of self-improvement on all levels, an art that reveals to the practitioner his or her own physical and mental limits and simultaneously offers a method to surpass them.

Classes are $140 for a One Day/Week, 9-week session.
Classes are $225 for a Two Days/Week, 9-week session.
Classes are offered at a $25/drop-in rate.
