Parkour and Free Running

Parkour is a discipline in which practitioners (Traceurs) train to adapt their movements to efficiently overcome obstacles in their environment.
Free Running is a related discipline in which the practitioner seeks out artistic and expressive ways of interacting with obstacles while moving through an environment.

This class teaches both Parkour and Freerunning, combining efficient movements such as vaulting, rolling, climbing and leaping with expressive movements like flips, saults, spins and twists. Students will improve their strength, agility, balance and coordination as they learn to traverse their environments and overcome physical and mental barriers.
