You are more capable than you believe.
Give up the phrase “I can’t”. See the work in front of you as a challenge, not an obstacle. Work hard, try your best, and don't be afraid to fail. We do not expect anyone to do something perfectly, but we expect you to put forth your absolute best effort. If something feels too difficult, ask for help.
The only real obstacle is your mind.
It begins & ends with respect.
Movement begins & ends with respect, for yourself and for others. Always work within your range of challenge and encourage your peers. If you can't find a way, ask for help!
Respect for yourself means: Choose appropriate challenges, set high standards for quality of movement, value repetition, choose only challenges that will make you stronger.
- Respect for others means: Encourage effort, give positive encouragement, pay attention to where and how people are moving around you, avoid interrupting movement and encourage safe training practices.
Make the commitment
Change and growth only come through consistent practice! So, come out to classes and community events. Make a commitment to your movement and to your community. Move every day on your own, and every week with us.
- If you're new, try to be consistent! Make a commitment to come once a week, to get to know the names of the people who you train with, and to share your goals with others. The more you embrace movement in your life, the easier it will be.
- If you've been around the block a few times, don't be shy. Classes will get you doing things you're not as good at, you'll get a little competition, and you'll be able to give back to the community by sharing what you know.
Diversify your movement
We are experts in human movement. There is no explicit right or wrong, but a whole spectrum to explore, ranges of the body, skills and abilities.
While we use parkour and its philosophy as the foundation for what we do, we believe in engaging with and researching all forms of movement. Our practice and our team pulls from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines, taking the best of each and blending it into what you learn.
No one discipline is better than another.
Be safe & follow your path.
Respect other paths but follow your own. Value your level in a progression. Take challenges at your level, don’t be afraid to ask for modifications or alternatives. Only take on risk that is acceptable to you. This is not a competition but rather a lifelong practice.
If you're not early, you're late!
If you're not early, you're late!
We will always respect your time by starting and finishing on time.
See being prompt and managing time as a part of training!
If it's your first time, plan to arrive 15 minutes early. Use the extra time to sign in, meet your instructor, unplug from the day, and stretch. We highly recommend reserving a spot and signing a waiver online before hand.
We have a very strict 10 minute lateness policy – if you are more than 10 minutes late to class, we cannot admit you and you will be late cancelled/charged a class. This is out of courtesy to other class participants, as well as for your own personal safety. In addition, after 5 minutes we will give up your spot to anyone on the wait list.
Leave No Trace
Practice in a way that does no damage to your environment. If possible, leave your environment better than how you found it.
Start Together, Finish Together
No one walks by.
Everyone is on the radar and we are aware of the people around us. If someone is landing loudly or moving dangerous, say something! If someone is having trouble with a drill, or is the last one finishing, join in! No one finishes alone.
