WFPF Parkour Academy and you… whether you are brand new or have a thriving Parkour program!
“I believe Parkour is the next big sport and I wanted to get in early and grow with the sport. I did a lot of investigating and joined the WFPF Parkour Academy. Their curriculum is sound and progressive by levels like we are used to in gymnastics and their support staff are amazing.” ~ Tom Forster, Colorado Aerials
WFPF Parkour Academy was created by you!! Well, it was actually created BECAUSE of you and all the questions you asked us!
Your questions were and continue to be:
-CAN YOU HELP ME!? HELLLLLPPP, can you help me!?
-How can I start a Parkour gym?
-How can I start a Ninja gym?
-How can I start a Parkour program in my gymnastics facility?
-Do you have a Parkour curriculum?
-My Parkour program is so big that I can’t manage all my teachers and make sure we are all on the same page in terms of curriculum, can you help?
-I have a Parkour program in my gymnastics facility but we have totally outgrown ourselves and need to take it to the next level, can you help us?
-My gym says that I can’t teach Parkour unless I’m certified, can you certify me?
-I can’t get Parkour insurance, do you provide it?
-My insurer won’t let us call our Parkour program “Parkour”!! Can you help us?
-How can I put the WFPF name on my gym?
-Can you help us with Parkour equipment?
Those are some of the questions we got. We started getting those questions when the first episode of our tv series “MTV’s Ultimate Parkour Challenge” aired back in 2009. They came in by telephone, email, and carrier pigeon. We said to ourselves, “Well, we’ve got to start to figure these things out to help these folks!” We knew that Parkour was going to grow and evolve and we pledged to help with that process. With our team of Parkour professionals, we got to work! It took some time as we did it piece by piece but we put together and created WFPF Parkour Academy. You can choose which services or products you need. It’s like a menu, a la carte!
