The Patasala Montessori school in Nungambakkam has a strength of 28 kids, aged 6 to 12. My knowledge of the Montessori system is very flaky and is all from hearsay. There are many instances during parkour classes that parents like Uma Naren have pointed out that what we teach has a lot of similarities to Montessori education. But it remained a mystery to me.
Vishwa, Vignesh and Baskar feature in this new video of our team-members. They go around Chennai city doing handstands in the most unlikely places. Watch them do handstands in parks, historical monuments, at bus, stops, train stations and scenic locations. You'll see them do handstands on skateboards, railings, tracks, hopping down stairs, climbing down rocks and more... Want something more? OK... They also do these handstands around the clock, with one location for every hour of the day...
Time to watch the video now...

I'm happy to announce that Chennai Parkour's Annual Beginners two day Camp that was conducted in April, 2010 now has a video.
We aim to inform beginners about what Parkour is, and help them develop and understanding of why they should practice Parkour. We also ensure that they have a good understanding of how demanding Parkour can be on your body, and provide them with some conditioning exercises that they can do at home alongside a set of basic skills for them to build on.
Check out the video below, and if you like it, I invite you to give it a thumbs up.
Some old, and new ways to crash. Remember that falls like these are quite 'normal' when you're training for Parkour. However the more you train safely, within your limits, the less you're likely to fail bigger jumps. And "more" is something like thousands of times, not dozens of times.
