Freerunning at Evolve is similar to Parkour and classes are devised to explore and push your physical limits while introducing you to the concepts and movements of Freerunning, involving a fun but intense conditioning element vital to one’s progress in the discipline.
Classes are taught by Deni Stoynev, Kiran Pande and Sam Doherty with support from Lukasz Przeorek and Patryk Glowacki.
This class is for Evolve’s youngest members and is suitable for students aged 4-7. Pee-wees Parkour is the perfect start of class for your children, it encompasses all aspects of Parkour with a focus on fundamentals including jumping, landing, vaulting and movement skills. This class will keep your children engaged whilst building confidence, fitness and motor skills in a nurturing environment. With class numbers capped at 15 and two coaches you can be sure the next generation of traceurs/freerunners are safe and being taught to a high standard.
Primary Parkour / Freerunning
Our long running primary parkour sessions are suitable for young people age 8-11. Primary Parkour follows on from Pee-Wee Parkour and works on linking sequences of movements to create stylish and efficient combinations or ‘flow’ as it’s known in Parkour. These classes work on vaults, leaps, balancing and much more to create an all round parkour/Freerunning style as well as improving students strength and conditioning. With class numbers capped at 15 and two coaches you can be sure the next generation of traceurs/freerunners are safe and being taught to a high standard.
Parkour / Freerunning
Parkour is an art of motion sport concerned with travelling between two points using the fastest route possible. This means traversing through obstacles using skills such as vaults, jumps and swings. The art of Parkour engages the whole body and is a fantastic non competitive sport which helps users to improve their perception of risk and manage risk well.
Freerunning is closely related to Parkour but adds greater flair and gymnastic style. In freerunning you can expect to learn big flips as well as more flamboyant jumps and vaults. Freerunning is more visually spectacular but less efficient and flowing than Parkour.
Make sure you’re on time as the classes are always busy and we insist on everyone participating in a thorough warm-up before being allowed to train, in order to prevent injury and/or undue muscle soreness. Bring water, bring training gear and bring bags of energy!
