Welcome to Parkour Federation. The main goal and inspiration behind our organization is Community Creation. The Community Creation program started many years ago when Texas Parkour, in the second largest state in the US, was trying to find ways to reach all of its practitioners. Many of the people involved understood the need for organization and began creating communities. Through trial and error, they have attempted to discover the best formula for starting and maintaining strong, lasting communities. We have comprised our program from this research and input from communities from all over the world.
Here at Parkour Federation, we believe strongly not only in the importance of communities, but also in bringing legitimacy to those communities. We have banded together from all over the world in order to bring something that will create the kind of cohesion that Parkour needs for legitimacy. When many of our communities started 6 to 8 years ago, we had only videos and ambition. We did not have the teachers that we do now who can influence a community to start with mind, body and spirit - not just blood, guts and glory. For just a small, one-time fee, our program will help communities understand the importance of safety and proper progression. Whether you are a small or large community, just starting out, or a community that has been around for a while, our program is designed help you!
