Adult Parkour: Extremely popular in urban settings and parks; we know you’ve seen parkour practitioners flipping and vaultingwith their GoPros all over LA. Practitioners aim to get from A to B in the most efficient way possible. This is done using only the human body and the surroundings for propulsion, with a focus on maintaining as much momentum as possible while still remaining safe. Parkour can include obstacle courses, running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, rolling, quadrupedal movement and the like, and is a crowd favorite for both young and old. Parkour is a very prominent art form with more people joining the movement daily. It has also become widely used in film and television making it a popular training method for performers of all kinds and our students love applying their skills to the action adventure projects they work on.
