Denmark Parkour Conference: Sept 21-22
Fri, 2012-09-07 19:14
Dan will be talking on the importance and benefits of risk in human development, especially for young people; a topic he has spoken on many times around the world. Stephane will be expanding on the history of parkour and what contributed to its development.
Also joining us will be our very own Julie Angel, film-maker and parkour historian, who will talk about the appeal of parkour and what has made it grow so rapidly across the world, and Eugene Minogue of Parkour UK, who will be presenting on the integration of parkour training into the educational establishment and how it has spread across UK schools so successfully.
The event is hosted by our good friends at Street Movement, who are based in Denmark, and should be a fascinating couple of days with the eyes of Denmark's sporting and educational bodies looking on with great interest. Parkour is set to explode in Denmark, and the global ADAPT coaching qualifications are now being delivered there regularly by Street Movement.
We'll have a report for you once the conference is done, so keep checking back.
