The sessions convey the movement experience of Sebastien and his team of professional coaches. Students will learn the fundamental skills of Parkour and Freerunning through playful routines. Our students benefit from greater fitness, body awareness, risk assessment and confidence.
For Sebastien, the discipline started as child’s play and remains as child’s play!
Using our soft, safe equipment, our students will overcome obstacles and build on their own physical skill level whilst gaining an appreciation for their own self-imposed mental barriers. We instill the sense of safe practicing and never encourage our students to stretch beyond their own physical capacity, in order to impress peers or to take unnecessary risks.
The Academy fosters an environment of freedom which encourages our students to play without rules or judgement.
- Increased level of fitness

- A new approach to your own natural, fluid movement.
Our 1 hour Freerunning/Parkour parties are designed to teach children the fundamentals of the discipline in a fun way through games and with completely soft obstacles for safety reasons. We warm the children up through a game to ensure their bodies are ready for action and then will set several different obstacle courses in the space to teach them the techniques of vaulting, jumping/landing, rolling, movement flow etc. We are fully mobile – so we can come to a hall/park/garden near you or we can help arrange a party (usually on a Sunday) in a school hall in Hammersmith.
