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.
We break our students into colored Ranks, similar to the colored belt system of martial arts. Signified by a wristband or hero shirt.

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 skill 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.
WALLS – This 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.
