BIG THINGS

Keiki Parkour Classes are on hiatus because we are in the process of opening Hawaii's first and only parkour gym, Precision Parkour.  The gym will be located in central Honolulu - in the hip and urban neighborhood of Kaka'ako.  Please like our page on Facebook, www.facebook.com/precisionpk and check out the new website (although, admittedly there is not much on there currently) www.precisionparkour.com

MORE NEWS TO COME!

Keiki Parkour Jam

All ages young and old are welcome to join us at Paki Park on Monday 6/10/13 for a Keiki Parkour Jam from 4:30-6:00.  This is not a class.  A parkour jam is when traceurs (parkour practitioners) get together to play, move, and train.  Bring your child or come on your own for some free movement.  This is a perfect opportunity for you to try out parkour!  We will be between the playground and the basketball courts.

Is Keiki Parkour right for your child?

Many parents are hesitant to sign their child up for a parkour class.  What is parkour?  How will my child benefit?  Is it worth it?  Well let me tackle those three questions for you.

1) Our parkour classes consist of fun ninja skills in the form of body conditioning, parkour instruction/practice/training, and childish games.  Push ups, running, jumping, rolling, climbing, playing are all designed to one, have fun, and two, get more fit.  Parkour skills taught and practiced will get them to use that fitness and apply it in a way that overcomes obstacles and fears in as safe a manner as possible.  Safety vaults, pop ups, cartwheels, parkour rolls, kong vaults, lazy vaults, cat leaps, tic tacs are all impressive moves that make kids feel awesome.  The games put all of this together and really get the them sweaty.  Lava, ninja, freeze, and zombie are just some of the tag variations.  Parkour musical chairs is a non-stop sweat fest for the keiki - with a side of huge smiles.  No two classes are the same

2) Your child will benefit from getting their blood pumping outside away from any video games or television.  Parkour is a video game in real life.  You get to level up, but not on a screen - in your own body and mind.  Being in beautiful Kapiolani Park, building confidence, burning up all that crazy kid excess energy, breaking a sweat, and again - having fun - are the benefits.

3) So, is it worth it?  Of course!  Your kids get active, you get to watch, or sit down and enjoy the park - read a book, stretch, go for a jog (after I get to know your child please).  The cost isn't that much - especially with the multi-class passes.  Parking is easy, and you and your child will feel rejuvenated from getting out of the house and enjoying our spectacular Hawaiian environment.  So what are you waiting for?  Sign up today!

Can Kids Be Too Healthy?

Keiki Parkour's answer to that question is NO!

The effects of burpees and carrots are...controversial?
According to this Nightline video, there is some controversy about CJ The Workout Kid and his physique.  Some suspect that his toned muscles are "too much" for a ten year old.  CJ does no more than an hour of body weight exercises and promotes eating fruits and veggies, no junk food,  and "just a little" candy.  How can that possibly be a bad thing?  He looks good because he lives a true healthy lifestyle.  Even though CJ doesn't practice parkour - kudos to him for trying to make kids live up to their true human potential in a natural way.

Happy New Year from Keiki Parkour!

Keiki Parkour 2013 Resolutions

1.  Get new equipment for your children to play/train with
2.  Expand our classes (We're starting classes at Waikiki Elementary's after school program)
3.  Make some killer videos of Hawaii's keiki demonstrating finely tuned parkour skills
4. More fun themed classes (like the killer zombie apocalypse class)
5. Gain some more dedicated students who love jumping, climbing, rolling, and moving like a monkey

To get things started off, Keiki Parkour is offering the following promotion - if you refer a new student who purchases four classes, you get one class free!  Let's keep our kids happy, healthy, and active this year.  We set the tone for our children, by encouraging them to participate in fun, physical activity outside, we promote them to grow up strong and confident in themselves.  Lucky we live Hawaii, where we can play outside in beautiful Kapiolani Park in January!

Play hard,
Keith
