CBS News comes along to one of our Outdoor Academy classes and speaks to Director Dan Edwardes and Team Members Shirley Darlington and Naomi Honey.
The London Parkour Academy was the first and is the longest running parkour/freerunning teaching framework in the world, established by the most experienced practitioners and coaches of parkour/freerunning.
Classes range from beginner to advanced, for all ages, both indoors and outdoors all year round. No breaks, no excuses, just good, hard training and great fun. The original and best.
We build better people through this transformative movement discipline known as parkour or freerunning. We do this through teaching, performing, educating, designing, consulting and building incredible commuities all around the world.
Parkour is the ultimate holistic discipline, a true transformative practice that requires absolute unity of body and mind to overcome the challenges and tasks in one’s path. We think this principle of the integrated whole individual can and should be applied across every aspect of one’s life, from training to work to relationships to strategies and much more. Parkour is as much about mastery of one’s own life as it is about mastery of one’s own movement.
Being grounded in real-world challenges by its very nature, parkour expects, develops and prizes functional attributes over all others. Parkour, at its core, is what works in any given situation to complete the task at hand – in physical terms this means the strength, coordination, speed, balance, spatial awareness and agility to move one’s own body across any terrain with confidence, surety and control. In mental terms this means having the courage, discipline, perception and self-mastery to be able to decide upon a course of action and then carry it out as perfectly as possible.
