Between July 22nd and the 24th, Parkour Generations will be sending a small three man team over to our friends in Wisconsin, U.S.A to run some intensive Parkour workshops. Some of the Wisconsin Parkour organisation were present at our events in Ohio earlier in the year and also attended our A.D.A.P.T. Level 1 Qualification course. We're very happy to be heading out there to train with the entire group and visiting a brand new community.
Following last week's American Rendezvous II we will be heading back to the United States next month to run a weekend training event for hosts Wisconsin Parkour on July 22/23. This will be the first time we have taught in Wisconsin, and we are looking forward to working with the community there which is led by a small but dedicated group of ADAPT coaches.
Next month we will be appearing at the Crossover Youth Culture Festival in Dortmund, Germany, on June 18th. The festival is a celebration of youth culture, from rock to rap, skateboarding to parkour, street dance and more.
Our own woman behind the camera, filmmaker Julie Angel, has just today released this new film from the first American Rendezvous workshop event held in Columbus, Ohio. Teaching were 11 team members from Parkour Generations and the ADD Academy and it marked the first time the Yamakasi Founders had ever taught in the USA. The event was hosted by Ohio-based organisation Parkour Horizons, and will be again this year - this month in fact!
The team has just returned from teaching at the Milan Monkey's parkour gathering in Milan, Italy, and had a thoroughly excellent few days with the community out there. The event saw around 300 practitioners gather from all over Italy, and everyone put fantastic effort and enthusiasm into the daily workshops. It's great to see the Italian community thriving and the discilpine is really exploding over there at the moment.
This year's residential parkour training camp in the French Alpine resort of Morzine is booking up fast and looking to be the busiest and best camp yet. To help people prepare for the training week so that they can maximise the benefits of the camp, we have put together a ten-week preparatory training regime which you can download and utilise in the lead-up.
This month we will be teaching at the first seminar event organised by Italian organisation, Milan Monkeys. Stephane, Dan and Blane will be flying out for the three day event which runs from 25-27 March in Milan, Italy, and involves a public Q&A day followed by two training days.
Last week's ADAPT Instructor Qualification course in Denmark went very well, with four of the senior members of the Danish collective Streetmovement completing the course with flying colours. Well done to everyone who participated and we look forward to seeing more of Mikkel, Martin, Jeppe and Mikkel next year both in the UK and Denmark.
