WE START TOGETHER
We train the brain as well as the body. We train hard, we train soft, we have fun, we play games. Parkour is a lifestyle. Some of us do learn how to jump off rooftops and do backflips, but it’s more like a martial art where we’ve earned our movement. A lot of our members just want to move better at ground level, and we can do that, too. We’re just here as a guide to help you make your own path. Skills and techniques that you can expect to see in class range from crawling on the ground to scaling walls, from learning multiple ways to juggle to lifting and throwing heavy objects. We work on the full range of natural human movements like balance, running, jumping, climbing, vaulting and more. The supportive environment we create is great for child development and helps adults feel like a kid again.
WE FINISH TOGETHER
UMOVE is integrated into the city of Houston with an excellent reputation. Our five star Google and Facebook reviews speak volumes to how focused we are on making quality connections. We’ve worked with neighborhoods, schools, museums, libraries, almost all the news stations in town, we have an NPR interview that replays every once in a while, and we teach a regular class at Discovery Green Park which is sponsored by Sprouts. Our coaches have taught all over the world, worked on movie sets, booked commercials and print, and we’ve even performed in international shows and locally at the Wortham Center in Downtown, Houston. Although it’s pretty funny, this isn’t “Hardcore Parkour!”
