This Meetup group is to meet other local Parkour enthusiasts (or "traceurs"), gather for training, to plan practice sessions, and to learn more about this art-form or philosophy or fitness methodology...whatever you want to call it! And also, from time to time, just to hang out and have fun with each other.
This is the group formerly known as "Rock Creek Parkour." It actually predates my own experience with Parkour--I founded it in a quest to help me find someone to train with so I could learn Parkour. After 3 5 years, I now actually own my own two Parkour gyms, called Urban Evolution in Alexandria, VA and Manassas, VA. And I'd like to share what I know and have learned with you.
Recurring gym classes and activities are highlighted on our calendar. The drop-in fee is $20. A two-hour Intro to Parkour class is $40 (please call ahead to schedule). And our monthly rate is $140 for unlimited access to the gym. We'll start you off in our Basics classes and our "Eat Your Veggies" classes; once you've completed that, you can pick and choose what you'd like to train in (Parkour, CrossFit, Breakdancing...however you want to do it!)
Most of the jams (a jam is a Parkour training session or gathering in a public place) I'll post are free, unless they're in a park like Great Falls, in which case you'd pay for the park entrance fee.
If you're really interested, check out our Calendar and our "About" FAQ for how to learn, or how to sign up for classes or jams.
