Parkour/ Movement Class

Alex Schenker

MovNat Certified Natural Movement Master Trainer

Tristan Sang

Parkour Instructor


Cost $20

This class is all about obstacle traversal for developing real-world physical competence. We focus on the skills of locomotion, including balancing, jumping, vaulting, ground movement, climbing, as well as other skills, to develop the practical freedom of movement innate to all human beings. Developing these latent abilities can be approached from the perspective of play, functional fitness, and/or with the mindset of evasion for self-protection.

​Parkour and MovNat have a common ancestor; the French Naval officer, Georges Hebert’s Methode Naturelle, which shaped what we know now as the modern-day military obstacle course. Everything in the Parkour skillset is part of MovNat, but MovNat also includes lifting, carrying, swimming, and other skills that complete the full spectrum of human movement aptitudes. We approach these Parkour classes through the MovNat lens, which is adaptive and approachable for everyone.

Shinobi Courses

Taijutsu Fundamentals 

Alex Schenker

MovNat Certified Natural Movement Master Trainer

In this course we will introduce, and deepen our ability in the basic principles and movements of Taijutsu. The program for this course includes combative skills such as striking and grappling, locomotive skills such as rolling and leaping, and physical conditioning such as stretching and strengthening.


  • Striking & kicking technique – basic foot & fist formations & application

  • Grappling – fundamental wrist joint controls

  • Kamae – basic combative postures


  •  Rolling – forward & backward rolling for quick recovery from a fall

  •  Leaping – forward, backward, sideways, upward, and downward leaping

  •  Break-falls – safe falling techniques for falling prone, supine, or laterally to the side


  •  Ryutai Undo (dragon-body method) – stretches & mobilizations for strengthening and limbering the body

  •  Kokyuho (breathing exercise) – breathing & moving meditation

This course is meant to introduce new students to the foundational techniques of our practice; and for experienced practitioners to refine the underlying movements behind all of our techniques. There are a great number of advanced techniques in our art, and studying them all certainly increases the breadth of our knowledge, but honing in on the fundamentals is an opportunity to further develop the underpinning depth in our Taijutsu. This depth carries over to all techniques & related movements, and we can benefit at all skill levels from showing some attention to it’s refinement. By the end of this course, you will have have learned some movements to practice on your own, a clear idea of what you need to work on to improve, and resources to review what we covered in the course.

Through not a requirement, it is recommended that people take this course before joining regular Taijutsu classes.
