If you have a son like mine who’s got dreams of becoming a ninja, then you better work to make them come true!
In Manila, we’ve got Ninja Academy to help you manifest these for them. The dutiful mom in me decided to take my son and his friend for a trial class because I secretly also have the very same Ninja goals.
Coach Habi was assigned to lead us through our very first session. He explained to us what parkour meant. “Parkour is the functional and creative movement of a person attempting to overcome an obstacle in a given environment. It consists of natural, human movement such as running, jumping, climbing, rolling, swinging and for advanced freerunners, tumbling or flips”, as stated on their official website.
Then, he proceeded to teach us some warm ups (which we thought was so very challenging already! Phew!)
More exercises we did together certainly exceeded my expectations of what we were capable of doing for our very first session!
I am so pleased with how hands-on coach Habi was on the kids!
Here is proof that parents can definitely join in the fun, too!
