PARKOUR

Parkour at Intown Stars inspires individuals of all ages to gain confidence in their ability to move through their environment. implementing a system whereby individuals can learn specific techniques that, if applied, will allow them to grow both mentally and physically, with progression always as the center focus. As well as emphasis on the Intown motto: “The body follows the mind”, and explaining clearly to students of all ages what that can truly mean for them.


Our mission is Kids Like It Here! And our Motto is The Body Follows the Mind. This is a mantra that empowers each athlete to trust themselves, to believe in their own innate strengths, and to succeed on purpose.

The purpose of our Intown Stars Parkour program is to inspire individuals of all ages to gain confidence in their ability to move through their environment. implementing a system whereby individuals can learn specific techniques that, if applied, will allow them to grow both mentally and physically, with progression always as the center focus. As well as emphasis on the Intown motto: “The body follows the mind”, and explaining clearly to students of all ages what that can truly mean for them.
 

At IPK (Intown Parkour), everything taught will revolve around these two disciplines: 

Parkour:

The ability to adapt ones’ movement to their environment, using specific techniques to travel from a predetermined point A, to point B as efficiently as possible.

Freerunning:
Using the environment around oneself for the purpose of moving stylistically/expressively using flips and twists to do so, rather than placing focus on efficiency. 


Either discipline may involve a combination of techniques in a sequence (vaults, jumps, flips, etc.), while still moving from a predetermined point A, to point B. Both disciplines are commonly rolled into one; as they share the main fundamental techniques required to learn.


Understanding the fundamentals of these discipline(s), and the culture behind them will be evident while teaching students from the beginning. Helping them to build strong/corect foundations of movement, and the terminology that goes along with it.

Our Parkour Progression System

This new skill-based system allows students to be taught with others who are training at a similar level, providing an environment where they can become passionate about this growing sport. Each level will be broken up by age requirements to optimize classes. In doing so each student will not only experience individual progression while making friends in classes, but also prepare to be the future of the ATL Parkour Community.

Our Intro PK class is designed to help our youngest students further develop their athleticism through the fundamentals of Parkour. Body awareness, quadrupedal movement, strength, coordination, and introductory terminology make up the backbone of this class. Students will also be introduced to the precision jump, and the importance of landing on the balls of their feet! These skills are core elements to focus on when starting Parkour for the first time, and will aid in students’ conditioning for our Novice class. Watch your kids have an absolute blast with our coaches in Intro PK as they learn how to jump, land, roll, and climb through their environment! 

 

Building up from the same foundational skills taught in our Intro PK class, students in Novice will be challenged to further their knowledge of the sport both mentally and physically. Introducing new skills including vaults, climbing techniques, precision variations, new terminology, and more! Coaches will help students build confidence in their movement by teaching how to link one technique to another, creating what is called a “line”. We offer three separate Novice classes, which only differ in age. Novice l (6-7y), Novice ll (7-10y), and Novice III (10y+).

Get ready to take your movement to the next level by upping the difficulty of all previously learned skills in height, distance, and power! In this class, our coaches will help students dial in their technique, whether it be foot placement, taking impact, balance, or simply continuing to build strength. Coaches will introduce new vaults, the climb up technique, tap swings, the lache,  terminology. Additionally, coaches will help students implement Parkour into the way they see the world around them! By doing so, students will inevitably develop their own movement style, as they further their understanding of “flow” when creating their own lines.
