PK Move’s Ninja Reading Hour was amazing! We were excited to welcome 10 children and 7 adults for this interactive, movement-inspired literacy event which included songs, Story Time, ninja movement and parkour culture.
Favorite quote: “My son is very shy. I have never seen him get this excited and participate in a reading program before. He loved it!”
Many thanks to St Elmo’s Coffee Pub for hosting us. We’ll see you next month for more ninja magic!
PK Silver, our parkour class for people over 50, got a mention in IDEA Fitness Magazine, June 2017 edition.

PK Move had a photo shoot today with Altabs Photography. We are preparing for the parkour art exhibit which will be at St. Elmo’s Coffee Pub from August 15th through September 5th. The exhibit, part of PK Move’s Kick-Off Party and fundraising event, features parkour movement and balances by PK Move students, friends, and coaches. It is meant to demonstrate our class activities and highlight the joy anyone can experience through play and movement. The show is being shot and curated by our own Mark Albert C. Altabano, a wonderful photographer, parkour fan, and supporter of PKMove. He has generously donated all his time and talent to this project. A huge shout out to Altabs Photography! Thank you! PS Because we know you worry: no Royal Doulton was harmed during today’s photo session.
