Level 1 - Foundations of Parkour & Freerunning
8-Week Session Package
All of our top level athletes, and most of our coaches, started here.
From day one you’ll be moving over, across, under and through various obstacles!
Through your level 1 training, you’ll be safely introduced to the basic movements of parkour and freerunning, covering the topics of landing, rolling, vaulting, climbing, flow, tumbling, bars, and wall tricks, all while naturally building strength, speed, stamina and balance in a safe environment.
We rotate through an 8-week curriculum of classes, with several skills one must adequately perform before graduating to Level 2.
Those 8 subjects are as follows:
Landings - Proper slapout landing technique, momentum transfers, balance and precisions, and proper breakfall techniques.
Vaulting - Learn how to move over, onto and off of various obstacles using a variety of different vault techniques.
Climbing - Breaking down and learning all the pieces of climbing on top of various obstacles, then applying those techniques to see how high you can climb.
Rolling - Learn how to jump from progressively higher obstacles and safely perform a Parkour shoulder roll to transfer your momentum.
Flow - Altering movements you already know, and learning some new ones, we will explore the more creative side of things, introducing some important Freerunning concepts.
Tumbling - Learn the foundational movements of freerunning-style flips with proper takeoff positions, forward and dive rolls, and handstand, bridge, and cartwheel progressions.
Bars - Learn proper underbar techniques, swinging and releasing techniques, casting and rolling, etc.
Wall Tricks - Learn to use flat and slanted walls in creative ways with movements including wall spins, twisting wall runs and cat grabs, step up handplant wall gainers (OH MY!), and everyone's favorite, the wall flip.
To advance to Level 2, you must pass a Level 1 Advancement test. Detailed information for that test can be found HERE.
