Parkour Gathering to be held in Cebu1
Primal Movement, the first Philippine national parkour gathering, is to be held in Mandaue City, Cebu at The Enclave, Parkmall at 9:00am, April 28-29, 2012. The organizers, Parkour Sugbo, invited practitioner and international coach John Conway to lead the event. Registration fee is PhP1,500.00 which already includes a shirt, food, and certificate.
This Cebuano parkour group has the vision “To make parkour an established form of kinetic art in Cebu by teaching it using proper instructional techniques in controlled training facilities and environment”. True enough, Parkour Sugbo as an organization has been training and has had sessions with aspirants and practioners for about three years now and finally, has set up this event, Primal Movement, as the first ever in the country.
Conway is a parkour practitioner and is qualified (Level 1) by the international Art du Deplacement and Parkour Teaching (ADAPT). ADAPT, on the other hand, is a qualification programme that sets the standards for parkour or the art of movement. An ADAPT qualified instructor or coach has to pass a thorough assessment which means he/she has achieved “a level of physical and mental excellence both as coach and practioner [of parkour]“.’
