CLASS CONTENT   

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. 

Benefits:

  • Increased level of fitness
  • Greater physical co-ordination
  • Increased full body strength
  • Sense of Achievement 
  • Autonomy with assessing risk 
  • Friendship
  • Exercise with a smile!

What to expect:

  • Learn the basic moves
  • Increase your body awareness
  • Find out what you’re really capable of (your potential)
  • More body confidence with a clear vision of yourself and goals
  • A new approach to your own natural, fluid movement.

 

PARTY CONTENT    

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.

Definition:
What is Freerunning?

Q: What is Foucan Freerunning©?
A: Foucan Freerunning© is a whole life philosophy that encourages people to play in and use the environment around them with no set limits or boundaries. My practice has evolved organically and it is an attitude of mind, an expression of individual creativity and an opportunity to play in the surrounding environment, try new things and feel good in your own body.

Q: Is it the same as Parkour?
A: Foucan Freerunning© is differentiated from Parkour because it move away from his core origin by being more open to freedom of expression and to practice other disciplines. Foucan Freerunning© is all about self-expression, activity and creativity – not about only getting from A to B in the most efficient way. The aim is to be able to go from one discipline to another without limitation and learn from it. The main focus of Sebastien Foucan's way is to find freedom through play and expression.

 

TESTIMONIALS

 

“We did have the most unique experience with an incredibly talented, modest man. I think we discovered a lot about each other and ourselves. We have only just come down from the high we both experienced from that day, and the opportunity to engage in an activity which challenged and grew our sense of self and our ability to work in harmony and change our perception of our everyday environment. Wonderful! Thank you”

Jo Evans

“It was a great session indeed. Sebastian is a great teacher and an inspiring individual. Best”.

Maarten

“I thought the session was excellent; I was glad the numbers were small for our session and felt we learned a lot. Sébastien is an entertaining guy and runs things very well – you don’t feel as though you are being asked to take undue risks, but nor do you feel as though you are not getting any taste of the real thing. Thanks a lot.”

Hugo

“We enjoyed the session very much with Sébastien on last Sunday afternoon. He was very welcoming and friendly and we got a good insight into free running and some good exercise. It was fun. Many thanks.”

Peter Harwood

“It was fantastic! Many thanks to Sébastien. He is such a great guy and an inspiration to young men. Thank you.”

James MacKenzie

“Thank you I can only really say positive things! Sébastien is clearly very passionate about what he does, and that is vital. He's fundamental to the idea of Freerunning becoming even more of a success. With this particular kind of lesson, I would say that most people won't have as much passion (initially), creativity or as much motivation as Seb.”

Jeremy

“Thank you for a wonderful session! I had so much fun! You are a fantastic teacher! I can't wait for our next session! If anyone has ever wanted to try Freerunning I highly recommend having a class with Sebastien! He is amazing! He is very patient and will go at your pace!! Check him out!! 🙂
