Parkour at Roots?

Who’s interested in Parkour?  Not sure what is Parkour?  Check out the description below taken from the American Parkour website:

Parkour is the physical discipline of training to overcome any obstacle within one’s path by adapting one’s movements to the environment.

  • Parkour requires… consistent, disciplined training with an emphasis on functional strength, physical conditioning, balance, creativity, fluidity, control, precision, spatial awareness, and looking beyond the traditional use of objects.
  • Parkour movements typically include… running, jumping, vaulting, climbing, balancing, and quadrupedal movement. Movements from other physical disciplines are often incorporated, but acrobatics or tricking alone do not constitute parkour.
  • Parkour training focuses on… safety, longevity, personal responsibility, and self-improvement. It discourages reckless behavior, showing off, and dangerous stunts.
  • Parkour practitioners value… community, humility, positive collaboration, sharing of knowledge, and the importance of play in human life, while demonstrating respect for all people, places, and spaces.

Post to comments if you’re interested in a 2-hour workshop at Roots taught by the awesome folks over at Colorado Parkour. The cost will be $20/person.

    Hey Roots crew, thanks for a fun picnic!

    I’d be interested in a parkour workshop to work on those urban ninja skills 😉

    I’m in. I’ve tried this before and found it to be really fun but definitely injury prone. Gotta take it easy!
