How to Convince Your Parents To Let You Train Parkour


How do I convince my parents to let me train parkour? This is a question I receive a lot in my e-mail so we decided to address this issue in a quick video!

When my bro and I first started training parkour our parents were not having it and many times told us we were not allowed to train parkour. We were big into soccer and our parents didn’t want us getting injured and jeopardizing our soccer career and chances of getting a scholarship to a nice college.

It took a lot of explaining and convincing to get our parents to be completely supportive of our passion for parkour ha but eventually they came around.

If your parents are the same, we know how you feel! The main problem we found was that our parents just didn’t understand what parkour was all about. They just saw how the media portrayed it and looked at is a dangerous and reckless sport.

It’s the complete opposite and we recommend you to sit down with your folks and explain to them what parkour is really all about and show them how passionate you are about parkour.

Once your parents see that parkour is about training safely and developing yourself (building strong discipline, making yourself strong and healthy) then they will be more inclined to let you train.

Watch the video above and see what I have to say about convincing your parent to let you train parkour.

Train safe,
