Tempest Freerunning Academy's trainers invite everyone, regardless of their age, athleticism, or experience, to learn more about the philosophy of parkour and the fluid acrobatics of freerunning. The academy features training areas developed by X-Games course designer Nate Wessel, which consist of ledges, ramps, railings, short walls, and other obstacles that students learn to effortlessly vault and traverse over time.
Classes meet throughout the week and cater to the capabilities of attendees. During the beginners' sessions, visitors will learn fundamental parkour movements and methodologies while developing the strength, balance, and body awareness that they will need to master the flips and bar techniques introduced in more advanced lessons.
Above all else, these lessons emphasize the core philosophy that people can learn to seamlessly navigate real-world environments with grace and free-flowing sequences of movement. Safety remains a priority for the trainers at all times though, and they ensure that students respect their limitations as well as their surroundings before attempting to perfect a new technique.
