The most obvious benefit of Parkour is the physical development that takes place when a person moves and exercises the body. Many studies have shown that running, jumping, and climbing are great activities that help build strong bones, muscles, and improve overall physical health. However, the benefits of Parkour extend into every area of life. Parkour participants learn how to deal with challenges, overcome fear, and set goals. They develop confidence, perseverance, determination, and learn how to problem solve; these are qualities that extend far beyond parkour and can help a child succeed in every area of life. Our goal is to reinforce these values for every participant, and have a safe and fun time while doing it!
