WILL DAVISON, GYM OWNER
Will's philosophy in coaching centers around the idea that when you are having fun it's easy to forget you are working out. He loves reminding his students that he hasn't “worked out” since his days as a high school wrestler. Now that doesn't mean he doesn't expect hard work from his students. With a motto of “when in doubt, roll out” he expects his students to fall and fall often learning how to fall with proper technique. In his words “If you feel comfortable in the fall you will feel comfortable pushing your limits.”
JASON BUDDEN, MANAGER
Jason has been a parkour, freerunning and martial arts tricking athlete and coach for 5 years. He has a laid back but focused teaching style that highlights on both strengths and weaknesses of all his students to challenge them. He believes that falling is an important part of learning because that means you are trying your hardest and have the opportunity to learn from mistakes. He enjoys teaching the physical and mental mechanics of how your body and brain work in all situations it is put in.
