Our Outdoor Parkour Class is 1.5 hours long and is run by qualified coaches from Access Parkour.
In these classes we'll work on a whole variety of parkour skills, and incorporate them into challenges and games. The starting location varies from week to week, so join the Facebook group or email parkour@ed.ac.uk to sign up to the mailing list to find out where it is each week. You may begin to see some areas of your university and the city in a completely new light!
You MUST BOOK YOUR PLACE so that we know how many people are coming and can bring the right number of coaches. The SESSION WILL COST £3 - this money goes towards the hiring of the coaches. Please bring this money with you when you arrive at the session.
Who can come to this class? Anyone! Whether you are a complete beginner or have been doing parkour for years, we’ll adapt the challenges to suit you. In addition, you can attend this session with any level of strength or fitness - we'll start wherever you're at and build up from there! You can attend one session before becoming a member, after that you can get your EUPK membership here to keep coming to our events (£25 full year, £15 one semester): https://www.eusu.ed.ac.uk/organisation/parkour/
What to bring:
- £3 to pay for the class
- loose clothes that are comfortable to move around in
- trainers
- water
Please note that the session will be running (and will be outdoors) no matter if it is raining. Training in the wet is a great opportunity to refine your technique!
The class is followed by a jam - an informal training session - where you are free to practise what you like, you could work on what you have just learnt in the class, something you have learnt elsewhere, or just see what challenges the moment brings! Since jams are informal, while the coaches will be happy to help you out, it is not formally coached, but is a great time to experiment and play about with movement!
If you have any questions about this class do not hesitate to contact us at parkour@ed.ac.uk
