I managed to set up a parkour group in my school, we rent out the gym every friday morning and have a two places to train outside.

My P.E teacher appears to be really into this and wants me to make posters and stuff to put around the school to raise awareness of parkour. I was just wondering has anybody else tried doing this yet?

At my school they won't let me run a club. No one is "qualified" to teach parkour (correct me if im wrong).

They won't allow any sport to be done in a club without qualified peoples soooo no.

Good lufk to you though, my P.E department hate me because a load of idiots went on my school rooves and they accused me of it.

My feeling is that these kids longed for a raw and tangible connection with their world; Parkour offered them a new, and perhaps most importantly, spiritual and non competitive means to achieve it. Parkour is about self awareness and discipline. In a nation where 1 in 5 children are overweight, it has surely got to beat being a couch potato?

Good stuffs guys, teaching the young 'uns is pretty awesome. Ed I know you're a brilliant teacher, so the best of luck to you in that. And anyone else who'd doing it as well. A couple of years back we had the school gym once a week to practice in, but we weren't really at any level to teach, and the PE staff are a bit unsure about letting us do it again... Keep us updated about how it goes!

The only teacher we have is the one who is pretty good at gymnastics and stuff and really likes the idea of getting parkour in the school.

The only time we have the gym is friday mornings at 7:30 (urgh) but im trying to get more gym sessions in anyway.
