Parkour Classes in Adelaide
We run a variety of Parkour classes in different locations and focused on different groups of people. This page lists our public classes – but we also run workshops, sessions in schools, private lessons, and events. You can always contact us if you need more information or want to inquire about organising a session. The South Australian Parkour Association’s Parkour Instructors are qualified under the Australian Parkour Association.
Unless noted, ALL CLASSES ARE SUITABLE FOR COMPLETE BEGINNERS. The aim of all our classes is twofold:
- Equip students for training independently
- Build a strong Parkour community
If you have any questions you can contact us at Contact@sapa.asn.au. Please bear in mind that SAPA is largely volunteer led and run.
We have online bookings for all the classes that we host directly:
If you want to save the direct link for booking in the future – head here and then bookmark or copy the URL.
Please note that several of our kids classes are run in partnership with venues, and they handle administration and booking – so they do not appear in our booking system.
The booking system has limited descriptions, full details for all classes are as follows:
Sunday Outdoor Session
*Sunday classes are back as of the 22nd of October 2023. Each month will have a different theme and each of the four classes in that month will be taught by a different Lead Instructor always ensuring there is a different flavour or style of class for you to attend. If you don’t want to participate in the class activities thats ok too as there will be a Jam style training session happening alongside the class.
Don’t let the price deceive you – this is our ‘best’ class. Sundays are our longest running and most well rounded offering. In many ways, these sessions are at the centre of SAPA’s community. Each week you will be lead by a rotating roster of SAPA’s core crew, trying something new, and visiting locations all around the Adelaide city. Instructors at these sessions are volunteering their time to share their experience and love of Parkour, and to build a community.
Time – Sundays @ 2:45pm, class runs 3pm – 6pm
Meeting Location – Corner of Rundle Mall and Gawler Place at the large silver canopy [see here for reference picture]
Cost – By Donation.
Details: We offer 1 class type on Sundays – This class is aimed at everyone of all skill levels to be able to get something out of it. The classes are suitable for 10-50+ years.
If it is your first time we ask that you book online so that we can be sure we have an instructor available for your induction. Returning students can book/pay online, or continue to pay cash on the day.
You will be required to sign a waiver before you can participate – we will have them there for you to sign but you can print it before class to save time. If you are under 18, a Parent or Guardian must also sign this Waiver. If you are under 15, we require parental supervision for the length of the class. Even better, we recommend the parents join in too!
Note that parking can sometimes be difficult if other events are on, so always allow time as the class will not wait for you.
This class runs throughout the year, which means you need to come prepared to train in diverse conditions from pouring rain to intense heat. Bring a backpack with water and wear shoes that you can run in.

We are always willing to speak with venues or communities seeking to establish a local class, or something specific to how they wish to train. All of our current classes have been built on word of mouth and working with groups who are eager to establish something. Please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Classes are the fastest and safest way to learn about Parkour. However, there are many other ways to begin Parkour. See the Join Us page for some other options.
