At Melbourne Parkour, our goal is not only to teach the technical movements of parkour but also the philosophies and attitudes behind why and how we train – to be useful and strong in all aspects of life, to train safely so we can train longer, and with respect to our urban and natural environments – keeping in mind that it’s important to have fun too!
Our workshops and classes are suitable for all ages and abilities. The non-competitive nature of parkour means you have the freedom to progress at your own pace, to find your best way of overcoming the obstacles in your path. No matter what your current fitness level, or how ‘physical’ you have been in the past, we can help you increase your physical and mental fitness simply by using your body and your environment in creative yet practical ways.
Melbourne Parkour has been around in one form or another since 2004. It’s members, along with Sydney and Canberra were instrumental in the creation of the Australian Parkour Association (APA), which is now the peak body for Parkour in Australia. Melbourne Parkour works in partnership with the APA, providing it with support and training to instructors from all over Australia.
Melbourne Parkour currently runs classes in various locations across Melbourne, with indoor classes and events held at Guardian Defence in Brunswick.
