Why learn Parkour?

Parkour is a new and engaging way to work out and build overall fitness through movement. While many people perceive it as a daredevil sport, it is actually a discipline that builds the body and mind through physical, technical and mental training in a safe manner.

Acquire functional movement skills

Gain practical and safe movement skills such as preventing falls, falling safely, moving mindfully, balancing, etc.

build self-confidence through play

Learn to progressively overcome fears, and build your mental fortitude, while expressing creativity in movement and having fun.

Develop a stronger and more nimble body

Through resilient training and conditioning, your entire body gets more mobile and stronger.

You can train anywhere, anytime

All you need is a good pair of runners and you're good to go! The world is your playground.

What happens in the workshop?

In this one-hour Intro to Parkour workshop, you will learn the basics of Parkour — Overcome obstacles in your environment safely with your body. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to apply simple moves to navigate around obstacles creatively. 

Don’t worry about getting all the moves “perfect” on day one, since Parkour is a long-term discipline that requires regular practice and body conditioning. It’s important to have fun, and take an exploratory and curious approach! Here’s what to expect during the workshop:

1. Warm up and introduction

Get your body warm and ready to move, while the instructor introduces what Parkour is and its core values.

2. rail balancing

Rail balancing is one of the foundational skills in Parkour which hones your body awareness and sensitivity.

3. jumps and landings

Learning to jump and land with proper technique helps you get more precise about where you’re going, and makes sure your legs (especially the knees) are well-maintained in the long run.

4. basic vaults training

You will learn to go through obstacles with basic vaults like Step Vault, Lazy Vault, and so on. These skills can come in handy when you need to cross barriers safely.

5. wall moves training

You will get introduced to the Cat Hang technique (which helps you stay on a wall), and basic wall mounting and dismounting methods. What goes up must come down, so it’s important to learn to down from a wall safely!

6. link all the moves together

With a few basic moves in your movement vocabulary, it is time to link them together to form a flow sequence from point A to point B. 

7. cool down and debrief

You will be guided in a group cool down activity, with a group debrief to reflect on what you have learnt, and what you can do moving forward.

If you can move and love to play, you can definitely learn something. Don’t worry about making mistakes, as every mistake is also a lesson learnt! Embrace the awkwardness that comes with learning anything new, as awkwardness is also an indicator of learning.

Anyway, don’t overthink this. It’s probably easier than you think. 

You may think only the fit and active can learn new skills. Yet, we have taught students of diverse backgrounds and fitness levels.

In fact, many students began their training from an inactive sedentary lifestyle, and have discovered a whole new meaning to physical, mental, and spiritual health over time.

No matter what your abilities are, you can pick up something new. We strongly believe that anyone can enjoy the benefits of movement training and other art forms.

Safety and strong sense of self-awareness is our non-negotiable practice when doing Parkour training.

As instructors who have years of experience in managing danger under our belt, we emphasise the importance and teach the ways of keeping ourselves safe at all times.

Above all, safety starts with being mindful of one’s limits, and having the discipline to refrain. Through practice and with our help, you will be able to achieve this self-awareness.
