Parkour beginners & advanced


Parkour is a training method which focuses on rational movement in our everyday environment. The focus is to move around obstacles with speed and efficiency. Playing with different kinds of obstacles is an essential part of parkour. Walls and railings don't restrict the movement, but give a chance to improvise.

What should I pack with me to the camp? Pack sneakers that are suitable for running. They should have a good pattern in the bottom of the shoe, to make sure they don't slip on the walls. Pack also jogging trousers and t-shirt as well as some clothes for a chillier day (a long-sleeved jacket or a hoody). Prepare yourself mentaly for a tough workout and having a lot of fun. You can bring with you some funny clothes too, we'll use them in filming the workshop video.

Below is a video our parkour teachers Ville and Julius did at Life camp 2013:

Parkour beginners is for everyone interested in parkour. We'll learn the basics and how to build your parkour performance. Beginners focus on techniques and combining them into longer runs in various environments and conditions.

Parkour advanced is for those, who are in a pretty good shape and master the basic techniques. The advanced group focuses on parkour in more demanding environments ja learns different variations of the basic techniques. In the runs we go for better flow and parkour paths that no one has never ever gone.

Workshop teacher Juho Kallio has a Master's degree in Physical Education and is a professinal parkourist. He works as Executive Manager in Parkour Academia in Southern Finland and produces different kinds of parkour services for businesses and communities. Juho did his thesis on teaching parkour. In the same process was developed an educational DVD on parkour. It's one of a kind in Finland. parkour juho11
