APK wants to show the world, in a single, consolidated place, what we're doing and how well we're doing it.


Leave No TraceThe Leave No Trace Initiative was started as a way to encourage communities and individuals to show respect for their training environments and as a way to give back to their community. It also serves to show the world that we're not just dumb adrenaline junkies jumping off of stuff - we're actually serious about what we do.

If your community has held, or is holding, a Leave No Trace cleanup, post here once it's done with a write up, and pictures, and bags of trash picked up. This is something that we can not only be proud of, but something that we can show the world!

So far together we've:

Held 49 Leave No Trace events and gathered 481 Bags of Trash!

Look at those bags!Look at those bags!BEAST!!!..... COAST!!!!Look at those bags!

Celerity Park
Devin Martin and SA Crew of San Antonion Texas have been hard at work. Devin has gone to city council mettings, planning boards, and jumped through all kinds of hoops. Their hard work is about to pay off, but they need our help! Devin now has permission to build the first Parkour Park in the USA! We need about $6,000 to build the park. APK has committed $1,000 to the cause, and we're asking for your help. Please give a few dollars (if every active member of APK gave $.50 we'd have too much!) to make this dream become a reality. The park will be used to train, to train others, and for some charitable casues. Click here to donate. 

 

New York Parkour Parks 
An amazing opportunity has come to light in New York City! Traceurs in the big apple have joined up with Open Roads NY to create 12, that's right, 12 parkour parks around the city. A note from our contact, Jesse Danger: "Our success for this project depends on the good will of people like you helping us to build more obstacles in these parks. With your help we can create safe and hassle free places to train and hold events, where the positivity we all feel in our training can be spread to all those who don't know about us yet. Help us to build obstacles, and through that, to build a better community." That means they need your donations. Click here to help donate! And if you're in the area, they are having a fund-raising barbecue. Check out those details here!
