About our Program
What We Teach
Our parkour program has been designed around traditional parkour. We focus on the cool-looking moves and the motives and safety aspects behind every skill. During our school term program, we teach the fundamental movements and mentalities of l'art lu déplacement (the art of displacement).
The term program
Each week, our instructors methodically cover all the fundamental skills of parkour, including safety and bailing strategies, vaulting, landings, climbing, bar work, wall work, and flow. Students should have gained newfound abilities at the end of each term to confidently complete difficult challenges that would have seemed impossible initially.
Though instructed Stunt Gym classes are available after school, during weekends, and on school holidays, we also run open sessions. These are one-hour time slots where students of all skill levels can train whatever movements they want. The equipment is free for students to design their own parkour park to train in. These times are incredibly beneficial in cultivating each student's creativity and helping them to take charge of their training.
Parkour isn't just a physical sport, but a mental one too. Students learn to overcome fear, gaining confidence in themselves, which easily transfers to all aspects of life. Since parkour was developed to be used outdoors, our indoor parkour gym features custom-made equipment to mimic urban environments. As such, students gain
Who our classes are for
You don't need to be fit to start parkour, but doing parkour will make you fitter! Stunt Gym offers parkour lessons for beginner, intermediate, and advanced practitioners. Our coaches help guide each student towards their goals, whether to get fit whilst having fun, learning to overcome mental barriers, becoming better traceurs, or just having a good time! Beginner sessions introduce fundamental skills and begin developing coordination and strength. As students progress to advanced sessions, they'll build up to more complex movements requiring precision, agility, and power.
Parkour can be safe
Safety is a big issue when it comes to parkour. Our parkour program teaches each student to bulletproof their body. Our instructors teach each student how to fall when things go wrong so they don't get hurt. We teach each student how to effectively mitigate the risk involved with parkour so they can safely and confidently train. Learning to fall can carry into everyday life, whether you trip on a rock, fall on a flight of stairs, or slip on the floor. These things are initially dangerous, but once the core concepts of ukemi are learned and internalised, a safe falling response becomes second nature.
Parkour is useful
Since parkour involves the whole body doing natural, primal movements, each student also develops extremely functional strength. The motions used to scale walls, jump large distances and vault over high objects are extreme versions of running, walking up stairs, and general callisthenics movements. As such, the physical capabilities of parkour are easily transferred to other sports and life.
