Parkour Party at Pioneer

Parkour Party at Pioneer

We at London School of Parkour offer many different types of Parkour based activities.

Included in these are our Parkour Party Workshops; in which we take a group, of up to twenty, in any given age range (7-12/13-18) and run through a crash course of Parkour related movements. The primary aim of these workshops is to promote a safe introduction to Parkour while enabling the children to discover just how much fun Parkour can be.

This type of workshop in particular is a treat to host, the atmosphere is always especially cheerful due to the celebration involved and this party was no exception. This was the Birthday Party of Sebastian who was enjoying his 10th Birthday by learning and then performing a bunch of Parkour moves with his friends.

The workshop was held on the 16th of January 2016 at Pioneer Skate Park, St Albans Hertfordshire, which was a change in environment for LSP as our previous Parkour Parties have all been held in sports halls such as Furzefield Centre, Potters Bar Hertfordshire. The mostly hard floor except for some crash mats caused a vast change in lesson plan as we have developed the Parkour Party primarily for a padded floor such as the aforementioned sports hall.

However the revised lesson plan went off without a hitch causing many a smiling face among children and parent alike throughout the workshop. It is always a pleasure to host these Parkour Parties seeing both parent and child find out new ways of moving are possible with safe tuition.

We at London School of Parkour would love to run another Parkour Party Workshop so if you know of anyone who is wanting to try out parkour for their party get in contact and we'll make it a reality.

With many years studying technique and safe practice of Parkour, Connor utilizes these to focus on creative movement using simple surroundings for his own training.

He hopes to be able to share this method of creative expression to his students to see them too enjoy movement even if only given one unassuming obstacle.
