Parkour is the art of navigating effortlessly through obstacles. The aim is to get from one point to another in the most efficient manner. It is practised predominantly in an urban environment, providing a number of obstacles for a practitioner at almost any location.
At Delhi Rock we’ll break down Parkour into:
– Flexibility and balance
– Jumps (take offs and landings)
– Strength building and conditioning
– Obstacle assessment and navigation
Students will be taught to navigate through obstacles using moves like the wall-up, tic tac, the different variations of kongs, shoulder rolls, etc.
Practising Parkour enhances one’s agility, strength and the ability to make quick decisions while on the move. It takes some time to learn, but with regular training and conditioning – the world is our playground.
Since Parkour is intensely technical and physical, about 50% of the class will be focused on fitness and conditioning. So participants will get stronger and more flexible as they go, and be safely guided as they attempt more and more complex parkour moves.
Training safely is extremely important since the only equipment in Parkour is one’s own body. Students will be taught to assess obstacles, the environment and the moves they attempt in order to minimise the risk of injury. That being said, just as in any other sport like basketball or art like Karate, minor scrapes and bruises are inevitable.
We also anticipate doing a regular frequency of outdoor days, where participants will be able to practice their skills on new obstacles and terrains. Hopefully these will extend into parkour trips to wonderful outdoor locations, seeding a great community of parkour enthusiasts based in Delhi.
Abhishek has been practising and teaching parkour for six years. He is trained in karate (Okinawa Goju Ryu) and has learned yoga from Kaivalyadham in Mumbai.
