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.
Balance challenge for September 21st:
Hold a handstand for a total of 5 minutes
This week's skill: Rail Balancing
Rail balancing and rail precisions require confidence and accuracy.
Place one foot on the rail and sit on your heel. Let go of both hands and hold for 30 seconds, then switch feet. Progress to both feet on the rail and holding position for 30 seconds.
Using rail precision trainers, increase your jump distance. Progress to waist-high rails in your environment.
Begin in a sitting position on the rail, and slowly stand up. After fully standing, sit back down. Repeat 10 times.
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.
