David's First Parkour Class

David tried learning parkour at a gym right next to my boxing club.
He started learning how to vault obstacles, and the teachers were excellent.
They were very good at presenting new concepts in an orderly way, while still keeping an attitude of fun and play.
I will start with him next class, but wanted to watch him do his first one by himself. It was exciting to see him maturing in his ability to interact with older folks.

This art of movement lays a foundation for all other sports and physical activity, and he seems to really enjoy it.
