About the Event


The Art du Déplacement And Parkour Teaching (ADAPT) Certification is the internationally recognized teaching certification for parkour/freerunning/art du déplacement that provides the industry benchmark for parkour instruction, and has been formulated over several years by many of the founding figures and most experienced instructors of parkour. Today, the ADAPT instructor network has spread across the globe and ADAPT-certified instructors enjoy a number of benefits, including an international network of like-minded peers, improved access to insurance coverage, and support from larger parkour organizations when working with local government officials and administrators.


The Level 1 (Assistant Instructor) certification course takes place over 3 days from 9am – 5pm each day. Candidates will participate in a variety of individual and group exercises, class discussions, demonstrations, and coaching situations covering:

  • History and origins of parkour
  • Principles of movement
  • Functional strength and conditioning
  • Coaching skills
  • Group management
  • Health and safety
  • The benefits of managed risk
  • The spirit of parkour in practice

The course culminates with a written exam and practical assessment by the course tutor(s). In order to complete the ADAPT Level 1 certification, candidates must satisfactorily complete the required number of supervised coaching sessions (10 minimum) with a Level 2 or Level 3 instructor within 1 year of the end of the course. Upon submission of the Supervised Hours log sheet with the required number of signatures, candidates will receive their ADAPT Level 1 certificate via mail.

Candidates will be required to show a basic level of proficiency in a variety of parkour techniques and most candidates find that 1-2+ years of dedicated parkour training is helpful for the successful completion of the certification.
