Owner/Head Coach/Curriculum Director
I started training Parkour in 2005 after seeing one of the first parkour videos by Team Urban Freeflow. What people could do with normal ordinary areas astounded me. I went outside that day and started jumping off everything at the local playground!
I enjoy so much of what i get out of coaching, but my biggest thrill is helping a student ascend past a point they very vividly once thought impossible for them. I call it the "level up" moment.

I've always had a love for high energy activities, from skateboarding and snowboarding, to BMX, and now Parkour.
After seeing videos on the internet and TV, my friends and I started practicing vaults at playgrounds when we were out BMX riding. I quickly fell in love with how pure and fluid the movements of parkour felt
I love coaching because I get to see how my students grow as athletes and it's a great experience seeing their progress.
Parkour has always been more than a sport or hobby to me. It started, nameless, on the playgrounds with lava tag as a kid, and soon enough my friends and I realized that the games we played could be so much more. It has helped shape and define who I am. My favorite aspect is training outside of my comfort zone and facing my fears.
There’s nothing better as a coach than to see the drive of a student who is not only willing to learn but desires to learn. Those little moments of clarity and happiness in a students’ training when they finally stick that jump or “invent” a new approach to a challenge are so satisfying to me as a coach. A good coach is someone who can inspire students to reach new heights.
Parkour for me started back when I was only 14. I saw one of my friends doing it and thought I'd give it a try. I fell in love with the feeling of control I had over my body. Ever since, I would go out every day and train, and I religiously watched youtube videos from all the top athletes
The number one thing I love about coaching is giving students confidence in themselves. Showing them that everyone is capable of amazing things, as long as they themselves are willing to do those amazing things.

My name is Scott Jacobs and I have been training parkour for 6 years now. When I was in high school I was introduced to parkour by a few of my friends and I haven't looked back since. My favorite aspect of parkour is finding new ways to push the limits I can take myself to.
As a coach, nothing makes me happier than seeing a student who has been working on a skill all class finally get it. It reminds me of when I first started training. I'm so happy to be apart of a team who cares so much about this sport and wants to share that love with students all over Massachusetts!
I entered the parkour world in October 2008 and ever since the world has been nothing but a beautiful playground. The beginning has always been harsh since there were no books, tutorials, or anything to learn from. Therefor we had to cope with the ground and learn how to properly adjust our body in different situations.
I believe that a lot of athletes shape up according to the architecture they grew up in or at least a part of it. ALBANIA didn't have much to offer in architecture, which meant that my first 5 years of training were going to be basic jumps and flips. Since I've moved into the US everything I've looked at has been with a completely different perspective. I've become more precise and always in sync with my mind.
Anyone can move from A to B. But with life, it’s never that easy and obstacles are almost inevitable. We must adapt and be ready for everything in our way. Determination and time are the necessities to become a great athlete.
Core and Adult Coach
I'd like to think I've been doing Parkour ever since I was born. I've always been climbing, jumping, and swinging on things. Parkour just gives it all a name.
What makes a good coach?
Personality and Involvement. I would hate for someone with a bad attitude to be teaching my kids. They will absorb the negativity like a sponge. A good coach is someone with a positive attitude that cares about their students.
Youth Coach/Strength Director
I started parkour after seeing videos of the Yamakazi group back when i was in 6th grade. That naturally progressed into me teaching myself how to speed vault and kong etc. I also had a trampoline so i was able to teach myself basic flips fairly early. Then in high school, i started track and field as a sprinter and jumper and that provided the perfect cross training for parkour
I enjoy coaching because I want to pass the knowledge i have about myself down to the next generation of athletes. They are the ones who will be pushing the sport in a decade, so i think it's important for them to have the strongest foundation possible for learning.
