PARKOUR

"Be Strong to be Useful". Parkour training teaches coordination between mind and body, using physical skill and mental fortitude to overcome any obstacle in your life. Parkour practice trains your body for quick, efficient movement and your mind to see each obstacle as a challenge to overcome. 

CURRICULUM

Parkour classes are broken into four Events: Floor, Vaults, Walls, and Bars. Each Parkour class is centered around one event at a time, focusing on learning skills specific to that Event. The more classes enrolled in per week, the faster skills can be learned.


Parkour classes have seven different Ranks, each progressively building on the skills learned in the last Rank. (you can find an description of what is taught in each Rank further down this page) All new students begins in White Rank classes, regardless of age, gender, or prior experience. 

The Firestorm Curriculum has designed to teach students safe and controlled movement first, followed later by flashier tricks and flips. Dozens of Coaches, teaching thousands of students over more than a decade have worked together to create the most well rounded Parkour curriculum anywhere in the US.

FLOOR – Safe, controlled movement is the most important foundation in both parkour and freerunning. This class trains the coordination and body awareness needed to move on all four limbs, roll, stride and jump with precision landing. Higher Ranking Floor classes teach tumbling, flips, and higher more powerful jumps. This is the class where students will learn how to do a backflip.

VAULTS – Conquer the obstacles in your path by applying jumping skills with hand/eye coordination and adapt body movement to run smoothly vault over obstacles. Students learn how to use their body’s momentum to launch themselves over low obstacles with efficient and flashy moves. This is where students learn horizontal efficiency.

WALLSThis class teaches how to scale low to high walls efficiently with proper technique, protecting elbows, knees, and faces while develop aerial awareness. Students learn to overcome large obstacles with quick and efficient movement, getting up, over, down with ease.

BARS Bars class teaches from the ground up, literally. Students learn to balance on, and overcome, low rails before swinging and climbing on higher rails. In this class upper body strength is built and spatial awareness developed. This is how students become the king of the Jungle Gym.

RANK BREAKDOWN

 

White Rank: This Rank focuses on the natural human movements needed to overcome small obstacles in a quick and efficient manner. White Rank teaches the foundational skills and body positions to create long term safe movement, protecting joints, faces, and organs.

Orange Rank: Foundational White rank skills are built upon to create a well rounded, safe and capable Traceur (practitioner of Parkour) Parkour skills are taken from a low to the ground setting and raised to teach students to overcome obstacles taller than themselves. This Rank finishes the foundation of basic Parkour.

Green Rank: This Rank is the introduction to Freerunning skills. Here students begin to develope  their own personal style of movement, introducing front and back flips, spins, and flashy moves into their training. Vault training begins to string multiple vaults in sequences as Walls training adds flash in overcoming larger obstacles. Swinging and release moves from Bars training begins.

Blue Rank: At this point, students begin to learn speed and efficiency with their movement. The concept of "Flow" is introduced, the ability to connect movements without loss of speed or inertia. Beginner flips are now preformed by students on their own. More advanced swings and dismounts from bars and rails are taught.

Purple Rank: At this Rank, students have the control and power to begin learning double and trick vaults over objects. Flip training progresses to wall flips and spins. We begin to mix all of our basic areas of training into one, allowing movement to cross over from bars, vaults, tumbling, and wall flips into one continuous movement.

Red Rank: Now students begin the big tricks. The concept of spinning while flipping is introduced, leading to high level slips and acrobatics.  A focus on razor sharp precision with larger jumps and vaults is needed.  Skills from Tricking, Tumbling, Breakdance, and Calisthenics are introduced and mixed with Parkour skills to create new Freerunning movements.

Black Rank: To achieve the Black Rank a student must utilize their Parkour and Freerunning skills in a professional setting. Black Ranks must be brave in the face of fear and be capable of performing their skills in any situation. Black Ranks focus on mastering additional class types, such as Tricking, Tumbling, Calisthenics, and Breakdance to continue to build upon their parkour and Freerunning training.

Curriculum Cards and How to Rank Up: Students must master a set number of predetermined skills in order to "Rank Up" and move to more advanced classes. These skills are found on the students Curriculum Card, created when they enroll in classes. To learn more about the Curriculum Cards and how to Rank Up, click the link below.
