Parkour and Freerunning.

Run at Point A by the South Australian Parkour Association (SAPA).

Open Training:

If you already know what you are doing and know what you want to train, Point A is open nearly every day for casual training and hanging out. We call this Open Warehouse and you can find the times on the Timetable. These are currently based on donations covering the rent and equipment, so we ask for $5-$10 but you can volunteer time or other help instead. For enquiries please contact TJ.

Parkour Classes:

There are multiple Parkour classes run at Point A by SAPA. Note that to sign up for any except Fundamentals, you must do a ‘First Timers’ introduction – either through Fundamentals or in another SAPA class.

Fundamentals

Fundamentals is a 6 week ‘course’ of classes that will give you a solid foundation. No minimum physical requirements. We currently run these Thursdays 5:45 – 7:45pm, with more sessions to be added as demand increases. If you have a group and want to book in something at a time that suits you, a Fundamentals course is a good choice. Full information on the Fundamentals course can be found here.

Kids

We will be beginning Kids Parkour classes on Saturday mornings, indoors at Point A. Ages 7-12 is the current priority, with plans to work with progressively younger kids. Students will be having fun while learning practical skills and lifelong capacities – with a bit of self-development and self-confidence thrown in. While we pilot these classes they will be on a casual basis. We are currently taking names for a mailing list. Full information on the Kids classes can be found here.

Basics

Basics is the ‘main class’ where most students will be categorised. It is an exploration of the concepts and movements that will begin to round out a person’s Parkour training.

Teens Basics [coming soon]

Adults Basics

Note that there are also other Parkour Basics classes taught outside Point A by SAPA.

Freerunning:

Mostly done in the ‘open warehouse’ sessions. Many of the athletes present at these sessions can help teach and spot you for the more acrobatic movements generally involved in Freerunning. We also have crash mats and other padding to make use of for safe progression. Point A also hosts acrobatics and tumbling workshops. For any inquiries, contact TJ or Andrew here聽. Here’s a video from when Point A was very new showing you some of the things we do:

    hello my name is Hayden I’m 13 and i have a general feel for parkour but safety’s an issue. Because I practice on the street and in school I’m worried that i may hurt myself someday, but I can’t afford to spend $10 every time I want to train. what should I do?

      The classes are designed to give you a lot of information so that you can do a lot of your own training from what you learn in the class.

      You can also use online resources such as the Parkourpedia – http://www.parkourpedia.com

      Hi Sylas, the best class for you at the moment would be the Sunday outdoor classes also run by SAPA. Details for that are on the SAPA site http://www.sapa.asn.au
