My first experience of being taught Parkour (formally) was a private group session with Dan in early 2010 arranged by Kirsty Henderson. He left a lasting impression and I knew immediately that Parkour is what I had been looking for. It put a name/philosophy/symbol to the joy and urge I have always had to be outside exploring, moving and playing. Dan's knowledge, superb movement and teaching and how he carried himself sparked the fire to go on and try more and so from there I started to train as often as I could with Parkour Generations. Dan's blog is packed full of insightful and beautiful writing so please check it out. Even though I've only met Dan a few times - he has played a huge role in my journey.
