Become an Instructor or Evaluator

Approved instructors and evaluators must demonstrate understanding of parkour philosophy, training and safety rules and the ability to pass these skills on to students. Please note, we do follow the humane hierarchy and train with positive reinforcement and expect our instructors and evaluators to demonstrate these same standards.
