What is Parkour?
Parkour is about overcoming obstacles and becoming a better person each day.
We use the challenge of conquering physical challenges to help us develop strength and character.
We use a variety of movements including running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, and rolling.
Parkour helps us learn to see our world with a new perspective. It teaches us to creatively approach challenges and find solutions instead of excuses.
MEET THE COACHES
All our coaches go through many hours of training, a coach mentor program, and are working towards additional coaching certifications (we believe we should always be learning and growing and getting better)!Read More About the Coaches
Parkour East Texas Mission
To help kids develop character through parkour lessons as we support parents/guardians in raising kids who are prepared to overcome the challenges they will face in life.
Parkour East Texas Vision
To create a Parkour Community in East Texas that is thriving and that is helping kids prepare to be successful adults who are full of character.
To provide parkour instruction that focuses on the Parkour Mindset and character development to 500 East Texas children ages 5-18 by 2032, with 10 ADAPT L2 Coaches and 40 Parkour East Texas Level 4 students acting as assistant coaches and pursuing their ADAPT 1 or 2.
To open 3 gyms in the East Texas area by 2029. With Kilgore's - The Rising- Parkour Gym as our first our vision is to grow and develop a sustainable business model which allows us to open a new gym in Nacogdoches by 2027 and in the Tyler area by 2029!
We believe kids grow as they work through and overcome challenges, so we often step back and allow children to solve problems of how to get somewhere or how to accomplish something on their own. (We step in when we see immediate danger present.)
