Parkour Randori Workshop (UE members-white band & up, prior parkour experience required for non-members. Ages 9 & up)
Parkour Randori is a project aimed at studying the intersection of Parkour and real-life, time sensitive challenges/emergency situations through dialogue, conducting experiments, creating drills, analyzing techniques, etc.
Maybe your focus is to be strong to be useful. Maybe you’re a hopeful freedom fighter in a hopeless dictatorship. Maybe you just have a thirst to be more prepared for the physical challenges to come.

Parkour Ukemi Workshop (UE members-white band & up, prior parkour experience required for non-members. Ages 9 & up)
Ukemi (pronounced ‘oo’-‘keh’-‘mee’ or \ü-‘ke-mē\) can be loosely translated in the context of Parkour as “the art of falling.”
Parkour Ukemi is a project that studies falling techniques related to the scenarios one will find through the practice of Parkour and other hard surface movement arts. It is highly practical and may even be necessary to keep us safe as our discipline evolves in ways we cannot presently fathom.
This project will attempt to cover techniques, methods, and drills to make your practice stronger and more sustainable and further the Parkour community’s progress in the practical study of Ukemi.
Failing is part of learning. Let’s strengthen our community by studying the inevitable.
