We are not machines. Humans are complex, non-linear neurobological systems that demonstrate emergent order, and as such our way of learning is not machine-like. And therefore our ways of teaching and coaching should be based on how humans best learn. 

We utilise a constrained-cognitive pedagogy – a method which intergates optimal practice with non-linear dynamic systems in nature to promote self-organising processes inherent in human beings as movers, athletes and individuals. We do not believe in imposing arbitrary movement patterns. Good coaching places the learner at the very centre of the process.

The Level 3 (Master) Coach Certification is the pinnacle of the parkour coaching framework, and denotes an individual who has excelled in understanding the higher levels of coaching science, theory and practice as well as having mastered the practice of parkour.

This course focuses on not only delivering highly effective technical and physical athlete development, but also on creating a profound experience and developing the 'inner game' of all practitioners. The prime function of this course is to act as the highest expertise for coaching knowledge for all coaches and assistants surrounding them, as well as to recruit, develop and employ the right coaches for the right environment.

Content Includes:

  • understanding motor learning
  • implementing flow states in coaching environments
  • deliberate practice
  • communication mastery
  • programming for longevity
  • creating the profound experience
  • meta coaching
  • event creation
  • developing a coaching team

There is no formal assessment required for this certification beyond the on-course observations, however, we ask everyone to provide evidence of specified experience within 24 months post course in order to complete the certification as well as submitting a dissertation on a topic agreed with the course Tutor within 12 months of the course date.

Each candidate will be informed on the specifications of the experience needed and how to provide evidence based on their performance on the course. Examples of experience required includes, but is not exclusive to, large event coaching, coach management and coach development.

The Level 3 Coach Certification lasts 3 days, each day starting at 09:00 and finishing at 18:00
