Last updated: 09/01/2021. Please note that we will be adapting our plans as and when changes arise in government guidance.
UPDATE: due to the current lockdown we will not be running in-person classes as detailed in the sections below. However, you can still join us for our online sessions! We have online conditioning every Tuesday, 6-7pm, and will have a variety of different online movement sessions throughout the term as well. We also run online socials. All of the events are open to newcomers and beginners as well as current members! Join our mailing list and Facebook group to recieve all the details of upcoming events.
What is parkour?
Parkour / Freerunning / Art du Déplacement is the non-competitive physical discipline of training to move freely through the environment using natural movement. Through parkour, you can develop your functional strength, fitness, balance, control and creative vision. Meet a community of like-minded individuals, challenge yourself, and most importantly, have a lot of fun along the way!
What is EUPK?
Here at EUPK we run coached classes with coaches from Access Parkour, as well as more informal training sessions known as jams. At jams you can put newly learned skills from classes into use, and generally play about in your environment. The location of outdoor classes and jams will vary.
Complete beginners, experienced parkour practitioners and anyone in between can all attend our classes and jams. No matter your level of fitness or experience, you will be welcome at EUPK - come and jump with us!
Join our mailing list and Facebook group to keep in the loop with all our events.
Due to the current situation with COVID-19, things are a little different to previous years. We follow all relevant guidance to run our sessions as safely as possible. Classes have reduced numbers compared to normal and are socially distanced. Everyone attending a session must sign up to the session beforehand for contact tracing purposes. We also encourage everyone to install the Scottish Test & Protect app.
You are welcome to try one class before needing to become a member!
We will also be running online socials throughout the semester, and if the guidance allows, in-person socials too. We have previously run socials such as potlucks, trips to the local trampoline park and film nights!
