I'm happy to announce that Chennai Parkour's Annual Beginners two day Camp that was conducted in April, 2010 now has a video.
We aim to inform beginners about what Parkour is, and help them develop and understanding of why they should practice Parkour. We also ensure that they have a good understanding of how demanding Parkour can be on your body, and provide them with some conditioning exercises that they can do at home alongside a set of basic skills for them to build on.
Check out the video below, and if you like it, I invite you to give it a thumbs up.
Are you searching for someone to 'teach' you Parkour? If so, it's possible that you're barking up the wrong tree. Take a look at this article to get a grip on what's happening in some cases, with Parkour Training and Instruction in India. If you find a teacher willing to teach you parkour, take a look at some of the pointers and questions at the end of this post.
Chennai Parkour is open to people who want to start training with us on this weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) at 5.30PM. If you're a novice to Parkour, this is your time to start off...

Here's what you get when you put Daniel Ilabaca, a few of his friends, Skateboards, Rollerblades, and Parkour in a bottle and shake 'em all up...
The Chennai Parkour group is growing in number and skill, and we're in need of equipment. The regular patrons - people who are practicing with us at least once a week - are going to start contributing a minimum of Rs. 100/- (there's no limit on how much you can contribute, but going below Rs. 100/- would make us look like cheapskates) each month towards a fund for equipment such as crash mats, vaulting horses and God knows what else. We expect that this effort will lead to a minimum collection of Rs. 12,000/- by January 2011.
That's right! The video for Urban Exodus' SS Music debut is finally out, and here it is, in a 4 part YouTube series! Unfortunately there was a small mix up between the Kash Vault and Kong Vault visuals, but do check them out and let us know what you think.
For all of you who have been waiting for the Beginners Jam, we have good news. We'll be announcing a program in the next couple of days intended for mid-November. Hopefully this will be a more comprehensive session compared to our last two beginners' sessions, so start getting in shape guys... :D
For those of you who have not already left your contact details with us, DO IT RIGHT NOW!
Watch this space in the next two days.
Something like this is bound to happen to you when you train for Parkour. Train hard, build up your strength and endurance and you'll make it through.
These three videos are crucial to help you understand "why" anyone would want to practise Parkour, L'art du deplacement, or freerunning.
