Parkour/ Movement Class

Tuesdays & Thursdays 7pm-8pm 

Sundays 1pm-2pm

Alex Schenker

MovNat Certified Natural Movement Master Trainer

Tristan Sang

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.

Kids Intro to Parkour Program

6-Week Program

Mondays starting July 11th

Trsitan Sang

Instructor

Cost $200

Kids Parkour class is a program meant to help kids develop their motor skills by challenging their minds and body to run, jump, climb, scale, and flip through their environment. The goal is to get from one point to the other efficiently and creatively.

By nature kids already run, jump, and climb. What we do is teach them to do it more skillfully and safely. These skills will give them the coordination and awareness that will translate into all other activities and sports that they will do in the future. Parkour is not only a fun way to get active, but is also an excellent form of self-protection…the ability to escape from dangerous situations!

Classes start with a warm up where we practice mobility, stretching and calisthenic work. We then move on to skill development and technique drilling where we learn to apply parkour techniques to our environment.

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.

Combative

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

  • Grappling – fundamental wrist joint controls

  • Kamae – basic combative postures

Locomotion

  •  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

Conditioning

  •  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.
