Is Parkour just for boys?
Not at all! Parkour is for everyone and we have many young girls in our Parkour programs. It is also a very complimentary training method for girls training dance, netball, gymnastics and many other sports.
Who are the coaches?
The Motion Academy is the only facility in Australia that has a coaching team that is comprised entirely of ADAPT certified coaches.
We pride ourselves on having some of the best, most experienced and highest qualified coaches in Perth.
Our program is designed and lead by our head coach, Ben Westbrook. Ben is 1 of only 2 registered ADAPT level 2 Parkour coaches in Australia. Our other coaches are Naidan, Luke, Sarah and Alex, who are all highly experienced and qualified and have a diverse range of skills and experiences to bring to the program.
Do you have multiple locations?
We just have the one facility located in Balcatta. We are not associated with or affiliated with any other gym or parkour program.
What safety measures do you take?
Some gyms are very padded and don't offer any similarities to the real world of concrete, brick and metal. This is usually done because they want to keep kids "safe". We understand that kids are going to want to do parkour in the real world so our kids parkour program is designed to teach kids how to navigate real world obstacles. We want to prepare them for the environment they will be playing in.
We do however pride ourselves on delivering very low injury rates by teaching children how to have fun whilst taking calculated and responsible risks. That is where our highly skilled coaching team comes in. We will teach them the safest, methods and techniques of tackling obstacles, jumping off blocks, rolling, landing and swinging to ensure they get the best experience possible and learn real life skills.
We do have a number of mats and soft blocks which we use when working above certain heights and for unfamiliar movements, especially for the younger kids, so that they can learn in a less confronting environment.
Please take the time to the following terms carefully before making any purchases.
Payment must be made in full at the time of booking. We are unable to hold or reserve spaces without payment.
For all booking requests received via email, text message or Facebook, we will process payment with your stored details. If you would prefer to use a different method of payment, please use our online booking system.
We are unable to offer refunds for non attendance, sickness or change of mind.
Credits will be provided for any sessions the are cancelled by us due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
We are not able to issue refunds or credits where online purchases have been made without using discount codes.
We are able to make one booking change per child, free of charge. Additional booking changes will incur a $5 administration fee per child.
Early bird discounts are only available for customers booking directly through our website or utilising our VIP booking system. We are not able to offer discounts on bookings made via third party sites.
Q - I missed my session, am I able to get a refund or credit?
A - In this situation, you will not be able to receive a refund or a credit as your space was still reserved within the session and your class credit has now expired. These spaces were not sold onto another student and we would have likely turned away others from the session due to no availability.
Q - I made an error with my booking and showed up for the wrong session.
A - If the actual session you have booked has not taken place yet, we may be able to accommodate you into the desired session at no extra cost. If the actual session that you booked has already taken place, you will need to make and pay for a new booking, as your space was reserved and class credit was used for the session that you had booked.
Q - I need to cancel my booking. Can I get a refund or credit?
A - If you cancel a booking with at least 48 hours notice, we can issue an account credit for the full amount. This credit can be used at a future date. We can not issue a refund.
Q - The session day / time that I have booked is no longer convenient. Can I reschedule?
A - We will make every effort to reschedule your session, providing there is availability in other sessions and at least 48 hours notice has been given. We can not issue a refund.
Q - I booked one session but purchased multiple sessions (or) I booked one child but payed for multiple children. Can I still attend all of the sessions / can all children still attend?
A - Please take the time to read the booking instructions and be careful when making bookings for multiple children. Each child needs to be booked separately. Purchasing multiple classes under one child's account does not mean you have booked multiple children. We will make every effort to accommodate you. We will issue a refund for any unused class credits. (This is class credits that were purchased but NOT booked)
Example - 1 child was booked for a session but you purchased 3 x sessions under that account and did not book any other children. On the day, we are unable to accommodate the other two children so you decide that all three children will not take part.
You will be entitled to a refund for the 2 x unbooked sessions, but no refund or credit for the child that was booked.
