Already an award-winning photographer, Cindi Hobgood also spent 25 years scouting locations for Hollywood studios and TV programs. Her locations were showcased on The Amazing Race, used by Disney, HBO, and Columbia Pictures, and shot by Spike Lee and Sam Shepard. As a location scout, Hobgood recorded her finds with a camera, carefully composing each shot in order to convey each scene’s mood, landscape, and lighting.

Parkour has done more than just leap into the public consciousness. It has vaulted over the public consciousness' chain link fence by ricocheting off the nearest wall, then rolled under its closing garage door?all without slowing down for an instant.

American Parkour is dedicated to passing on the amazing feats of urban free-running that have galvanized countless action movies and Youtube videos, minus the years of trial, error, and scraped knees. Adults and children can both explore creative ways to move their bodies and gain confidence in their own coordination:

  • Level 1: Beginners are introduced to parkour's basic techniques plus some simple conditioning exercises. Once students are up and running, instructors recommend daily workouts to strengthen muscle groups.
  • Level 2: Once students pass a test to prove they've mastered the necessary fundamentals, teachers guide them through increasing levels of difficulty and teach them individual techniques.
  • Level 3: The focus shifts to conditioning and creativity. Level 3 is where students hone their ability to overcome any series of obstacles with fluid grace, from 10-foot gaps between buildings to the seven desks between the door and a teacher announcing a pop quiz.
