Freedom in Motion Coaching Certification Program
The Freedom in Motion Coaching Certification Program has been designed by Freedom in Motion founder Jimmy Davidson and Head Coach Jacob Blake. Jimmy and Jacob’s own experience with parkour first began as they traveled internationally competing, performing, and learning from many of the world's most renowned parkour communities and coaches. First developing entire movement programs for multiple start-up parkour programs in California, Jimmy & Jacob are now at the forefront of developing the best innovative teaching methods in the movement industry. With ongoing collaboration with respected researchers in fields such as biomechanics, physical therapy, chiropractic, martial arts, & new emerging forms of fitness we aim to bets create a curriculum that reflects a deeper understanding human movement. It is now our goal to share this knowledge with the next generation of coaches and teachers to further advance the safe and effective sharing of knowledge as it relates to parkour as a form of art and an emerging sport.
