This week in parkour, coach Andrey Pfening set the focus on wall back flips. He designed four effective stations where our athletes practiced different skills. The skills were small pieces of the wall back flip skill itself. This is a picture of your Parkour Fundamentals class (6-7yrs):
Parkour Fundamentals is a class created for our youngest traceurs (parkour practitioners). The basics of parkour equal a solid base level of fitness coupled with the maturity to distinguish the difference between a stunt and calculated risk. We understand that children aged 6 and 7 develop these attributes in many different ways and timelines. Therefore, students participate in an hour long class designed to build strength, flexibility, and an understanding of how to use their bodies safely, all while having fun in a safe, learning environment. Curriculum includes, but is not limited to: Games, obstacle course navigation, and individual skill building stations.
