Since 2011, Urban Movement (a.k.a. UMOVE) is the first and only gym in Houston, Texas with roots in Parkour and Natural Movement (MovNat). Our head coaches have been certified by and have regularly trained with the founders of each of those practices. We’re unique because we’re part of a very small group in the USA who are directly affiliated with the ADD Academy in Paris, France. ADD stands for Art Du Deplacement, it is the source discipline where Parkour and Freerunning come from, and it was developed by a group called the Yamakasi. We’re also proud to have been a MovNat Licensed Facility for many years. MovNat is the education system for Natural Movement created by Erwan LeCorre.
Our mindful way of coaching makes movement accessible to anybody. We’ve worked with students of all ages and all ranges of ability. Often times, it’s our classes that (re)introduce people to a general movement practice for the first time. Get started today!
