Our Academies provide a safe environment in which to train, play and develop, in which practitioners known as ‘traceur’s’ or 'freerunners' learn many techniques and how to combine them together forming flow sequences. Classes are divided into three core sections: the warm-up, 'stations' and finishing with a cool-down. Alongside drills and paths, many parkour games occur that build positive qualities and a persons character, these include creativity, team-work, trust, communication and social skills. Via our movement disciplines, with commitment and patience, practitioners can expect to strengthen many attributes including spatial awareness, strength, flexibility, power, speed, agility, balance, flight and precision.

What to Bring

A large bottle of water, loose fitting clothing and a positive attitude!


All ability levels are welcome within the same class. Almost every part of the class can be adjusted, becoming harder or easier, tailoring all challenges to the individual's capabilities.


All classes run throughout school holidays. Each venue will differ for a small break in the summer and again at Christmas/New Year, as well as bank holidays. Please inquire at your chosen venue, nearer to these times.
