Workshops are a fantastic way to improve your movement. Time spent with a knowledgeable coach, focused on a particular skill can really help you to level up.

Workshops are also a perfect way to broaden your movement vocabulary. It's a great opportunity to try new things and challenge yourself. (In the immortal words of Jake the dog, sucking at something is the first step to being sorta good at something.)

We run a variety of one-off and semi-regular workshops in an array of skills and disciplines, including parkour, handbalancing, strength, being weird, flexibility....

This was a really fun, accessible way to give parkour a try. I thought the safety issues were handled really well, and everyone was made to feel safe and included. Thanks for your efforts!

movement milestones

Measuring progress, and getting a good understanding of your strengths and weaknesses, is an important part of anyone's training.

 

In these sessions, we run through a series of fitness, capacity and mobility tests that are relevant to parkour training in particular, and functional movement in general. It's a great way to keep track of your achievements and progress, and to identify areas you need to work on. We'll facilitate the tasks, and provide you with sheets to keep track of them. We'll also keep record and store that info for next time, and send you the spread sheet so you can add PBs in as you hit them. 

 

This is not a competition, and the aim is not to be better than anyone else. For your first time, the aim is to establish a baseline record of your capacity, to measure future improvement against. There's no need to do every task if you don't want to, and we don't set any levels or expectations. This is about your progress, measured against yourself. All tasks can be modified to your level.

 

This sort of progress testing isn't a perfect system, clearly, as doing it all in one go means some tasks will suffer due to fatigue on the day, etc etc. As such, we recommend retesting yourself in between Milestones, and keeping your results up to date.

fluidity methods

A chilled, conversational and playful approach to experimenting with movements and space to help build body awareness and confidence. Exploring different aspects of training and exercises that can help participants become more fluid in their movement.

 

This workshop is presented by John Baker, and many have described his movements smooth and buttery. John will go through some tips and techniques that he has explored throughout his training that has lead to his silky and strange movement.

 

In this workshop participants will play with soft movement exercises that draw inspiration from different disciplines such as capoeria, dance and theatre. Participants will explore an improvisational approach to exploring space and environment. Playing with movement and momentum by looking at space as an area of play, rather than approaching with the mindset of particular techniques or series of tricks to accomplish.

 

Come along and learn:

- Movement confidence.

- A greater sense of play and space.

- Increased awareness on how to interact with space.

- Some 'linking movements' to help you to link movements between obstacles.

- John's lovely presence.

"It exceeded my expectations. I came in thinking that there would be plenty of things I couldn't do and would need to work at. While there is a lot more to learn, i was pleasantly surprised at my own willingness try all things that were taught."
