Parkour in-between session!

We're doing some Parkour practice between official sessions every second Tuesday!

Got some moves you want to try or need a bit more time to really nail that wall climb - come along and we'll all give it a go and see if we can help each other out.

These sessions are all about collaboration and conditioning, working out and working together.

What is Parkour?

Parkour is a physical discipline based around being strong and skilled enough to move freely in an environment with the goal of getting from point A to point B as quickly and efficiently as possible. It aims to train not only the physical body but also the spirit and the mind to overcome any obstacles and seek constant self-progression.

It was developed in France in the 1990s by a young group of friends who inherited a method of exercise formed around World War I. This methodology viewed exercise as a means to develop functionally strong and moralistic human beings, which were viewed as lacking in modern society. This philosophy of exercise guided their child-like games of exploring their surroundings and pushing their personal limits to the edge, until they developed into the physical art now known as parkour. Today, parkour is practised around the world and spectacularly showcased in many movies and video games.

What we're doing:

Where: We're meeting in the middle of the park near the ship mast.

Requirements: You must have attended a proper Parkour session previously.
