19-22 November 2009, Dan and Stephane ran seminars in the ancient city of St Petersburg, Russia. Dan was there last year and both the city and the parkour community were very welcoming and traceurs came from all over Russia to take part, showing great training spirit and physical abilities. 2009 proved to be just as good, with Stephane also available to attend for his first trip to Russia. The event was organised by Russia's PKCITY.
Russia Seminar Success
Dan and Stephane have just returned from teaching a few days of seminars in St Petersburg, Russia, and the events went very well with great attendance from the burgeoning Russian traceur community. The last day was spent working with teenage inmates of a Russian prison, who live in fairly harsh conditions yet threw themselves into the training despite the cold and wet conditions! We would like to thank the St Petersburg parkour community for organising the seminars, and especially Evgenii, Gen and all the team for making us feel so welcome. Great to see familiar faces as well as to meet some new ones, and we look forward to further strengthening the ties between the Russian and European parkour commnuities!
