Beginner's Parkour Workshop in Rochester, NY - March 28th

On Jumping on Entrepreneurship

Rochester Parkour is planning our second Beginner’s Parkour workshop. This is a free introduction, designed to inform and educate anyone interested in practicing Parkour. It’s targeted towards beginners, but we encourage more experienced members of the community to come as well.

We will be covering the basics of Parkour, including an introduction to proper conditioning, landings and precision jumps, quadrupedal movement, and basic vaulting. Rochester Parkour also emphasizes an importance on safety and slow, progressive training methodologies in all of our events and training sessions.

We encourage anyone interested in Parkour to attend. Whether it’s your first time out, or you’re already an experienced traceur, you’re sure to learn something - or at least have a good time!

Who can come: Anyone! Males or females of any age. Parents feel free to bring your kids. Kids, feel free to bring your parents!

Who is hosting: The event is being run by Zachary Cohn, one of the most experienced traceurs in the state. He is a member of the APK Alliance, a national group sponsored by American Parkour. He will be assisted by Charles Moreland and Jeff Whalley, two experienced and dedicated traceurs.

Live Blog: The Ball by John Fox

On The Raspy Frog

Just went back to reread one of my favorite lines from this book; Fox quoting Dr. James Naismith, the inventor of basketball: "'It was not uncommon,' wrote Naismith of basketball's lawless early days, "to see a player running down the floor, juggling the ball a few inches above his head.'" That's a funny image.

This is an image of the Canadian who invented basketball in 1891.
