Intermediate Levels 3&4


INTERMEDIATE LEVELS (3&4)

This difficulty tier is meant for practitioners who have established a solid foundation in the basics of Parkour. This class is not available to an athlete who has never taken parkour class. At this level athletes will be pushed to rely less and less upon soft or padded surfaces during their training and instead be more confident in their abilities to execute movements and recover safely. This tier will have more training on hard surfaces, so competence and comfortability with concrete and wood structures will expected and developed further. Athletes will also be encouraged to start training for and potentially take part in various types of competition.
