Run at Point A by the South Australian Parkour Association (SAPA).
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.
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 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.
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 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]
Note that there are also other Parkour Basics classes taught outside Point A by SAPA.
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 . Here’s a video from when Point A was very new showing you some of the things we do:
