Movement Training for Humans

Kids Classes in the Seattle Area

Notice:

EMP IN-PERSON EVENTS ARE ON PAUSE ⏸️

Due to the changing situation with COVID-19, our in-person classes, workshops, and other live vents are on pause until further notice. Find out more about our status and how we’re responding here. 

But there’s good news! Our Intro to Natural Parkour (INP) course is 100% online and can be safely adapted to your environment. It’s a great way to learn the skills and tools to keep our movement practice alive during times when we need it most.

THE BEST PARKOUR CLASSES FOR KIDS IN SEATTLE!

Our RADICAL idea?

Get kids away from all the devices and screens!

Instead, give them the physical activity they need that they’ll actually enjoy. Somewhere they can socialize with other kids face-to-face. Where they can spend time in nature. Where they can be challenged. Where they can develop mental and social skills that will empower them for life.

EVOLVE MOVE PLAY KIDS PARKOUR CLASSES

  • Where: Sandel Park
  • When: Tuesdays 3:00-4:15 PM

Our popular Evolve Move Play Kids Classes provide a unique, play-based learning environment for the development of general movement skills, connection to nature, and character cultivation. At our professional parkour lessons for kids, your child will:

  • Climb trees
  • Balance on logs
  • Throw sticks
  • Roughhouse
  • Play challenging games with other kids
  • Learn how to move with grace and flow in nature
  • Develop motor skills, self-esteem, and self-control

In doing so, boys and girls develop strength, agility, accuracy, better communication, and strategies for dealing with the bigger challenges of life.

Oh yeah, did we mention? Kids are now one of, if not THE biggest natural parkour demographic! AKA they really dig it.

We Believe Kids Deserve More

We believe that playing and movement are fundamental to the full education of a human: cognitively, socially, emotionally, as well as physically. It’s our belief that children NEED to climb trees and leap across gaps to learn how to assess and deal with risk, that they NEED to engage in rough and tumble play to develop empathy, negotiation, and management of aggression.

We believe that children needto spend much more time in nature, playing in the dirt, moving and exploring in the sun and the rain. We believe these fundamental needs are being catastrophically ignored by our current education system. It is our mission to help provide an answer for children, including our own, to meet these vital developmental requirements.

We believe our classes are some of the best social skills activities for kids in the area. If you share our mission for children, please join us for our parkour kids classes in Seattle!
