Miami's Parkour and Freerunning Community
Parkour and Freerunning
Parkour is the discipline of moving through your environment unimpeded by any obstacles that may appear in your path. It is based on the concept of "Natural Movement", and relies on the body's natural ability to adapt.
Freerunning incorporates flips and other acrobatics into your movement for artistic expression, and is very similar to parkour.
Miami Parkour is a group of parkour and freerunning communities located in South Florida and open to anyone who wants to learn and practice. We hold weekly meetups and offer a variety of classes, including personal training. We also do demonstrations, performances, and workshops.
Movement challenge for July 28th:
25 reps of 5 steps QM, 3 Push Ups
This week's skill: Strides
With fluid momentum, keep constant movement of large, accurate steps, often ending with a two-foot precision landing.
With a half-step start, stride into a precision landing. Progress farther with a chalk line.
Chain over 10 strides together as cleanly as possible.
Practice taking a single stride onto a rail, accuracy is imperative.
Two-foot take off.
Jump from a standstill using both legs for power and while in midair bring one foot forward and one foot back. The front foot becomes the striding leg and the back foot swings through to complete the movement.
How We Train
Most outdoor Parkour is practiced on other people's property. Respect them! There is no benefit in ignoring people's requests for you to leave an area that belongs to them.
Whether it's the police or a security guard, it doesn't matter, listen to them! Be friendly and understanding, move on if they ask you, and don't talk back. What you do reflects on all Parkour practicioners.
Parkour can be dangerous. You are responsible for your own safety and well-being. Parkour is not about taking unnecessary risks or finding thrills on rooftops. Parkour is a mental discipline in which you train yourself to be useful in any situation. An injury hampers your ability to be useful.
