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.

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.
