Fagan Cheong, Director and Head Coach of Move Academy Singapore, will conduct three 'Parkour for Everyone' public workshops across the Giving Week Festival. These workshops revolve around three pillars—Health, Fun and Mastery—and demonstrates how Parkour can be an incredibly empowering yet easily accessible tool for holistic functionality, fulfilment and well-being.

Workshop prices are based on The Honour System - Empower people with the freedom to decide how much to give based on how much they value the service and experience.

50% of collected funds will go to Metta Hospice Care - "Set up in June 2000 to offer free home hospice care to the terminally ill of all ages and races, the Metta Hospice Care has since helped 1200 patients live with quality and dignity throughout the last phase of their lives."

Objective: Basic Vaulting and Break Fall Techniques
Bathing Facilities: Yes

What to Expect:

'Parkour for Everyone' is a fun, safe and no-pressure introduction to the history and foundation of the art of Parkour, and is suitable for anybody in good health and not dealing with major injuries. Through these workshops, participants will experience why Parkour is suitable for all ages, genders and lifestyles, whether you are an office worker, an occasional brisk walker or fitness enthusiast. You will discover a new world of freedom and confidence in movement, which will in due time positively transform your health.

What to Bring:

All you need are comfortable sports attire and shoes (most practitioners prefer sweatpants) and sufficient water for hydration. You can also bring bathing necessities (for workshops #2 and #3) and a spare set of clothes to change into if necessary.

Story

The word Parkour often brings to mind images of people flipping and jumping off rooftops, as well as feelings of excitement, fear and adrenaline. "It's stupidly dangerous", "I'm not young anymore and I don't want any trouble", "Parkour is only for the fit and daredevils" are very common public perceptions, but that is very much misguided. Being one of the fastest growing disciplines in the world, Parkour soared to the international stage in just under 30 years. It is no surprise that its original values could not fully keep up with the global surge, but we are here to change that.

Through progressive training and a holistic approach steeped in the founders' values, Coach Fagan Cheong is here to show Singapore that Parkour, a powerful tool to a healthy and happy life, can be for anyone willing to rediscover his or her boundaries.

Founder's Values
'We Start Together, We Finish Together' - Leave no one behind, achieve through group effort
'To Be Strong To Be Useful' - Constantly improve for others
'To Be And To Last' - Train for longevity
