What are the differences between tricking, parkour, and freerunning?
We offer three different movement classes that each offer their own progressions, techniques / skills, and movement style.
Parkour is a movement discipline in which you train to overcome obstacles. Freerunning is a term coined for a style of movement that evolved from parkour. Freerunning is trained not to overcome but to create artistic / aesthetic movement with the use of obstacles. We teach parkour and freerunning with and without obstacles.
Martial Arts Tricking is an aesthetic blend of kicks, flips, and twists that a practitioner chains together in “combos” to create a unique art all it’s own. Sampling and using movements from martial arts, break dancing, and tumbling, tricking has many different styles. We teach tricking on our spring padded floor.
What should I expect at class?
Classes are ran for seventy-five minutes long. We always, always warm-up. Depending on the coach, classes follow a curriculum however the pace, challenges, and effort will vary. We try our best to keep a maximum ratio of one coach to ten students. All beginner classes require absolutely no prerequisites. All other classes require students to match the prerequisites. Higher level students may take classes at lower ranking levels. Students with medical or other disabilities are advised to have clearance from their medical doctor.
What do I wear to class?
We recommend wearing comfortable athletic clothing and shoes. Students will want to be able to run, jump, climb, and flip in the clothing they’re comfortable wearing.
Are special shoes required?
Special shoes are not required however we highly recommend zero-drop, minimalistic shoes that allow you to feel the obstacles beneath your feet. Look for pair of shoes that are light, flexible, and comfortable.
Beginner Classes will be too easy for me or my child, can I/he/she jump straight into the intermediate or advance classes?
No. Please speak to your / your child’s instructor for evaluation.
As an intermediate / advance student, can I / my child take a lower level class?
Yes, we strongly suggest lower level classes to master technical complacency and understanding.
