Sunday Parkour
Kids are welcome to drop in on this class with Kong Academy.

This class builds strength, balance and coordination all while safely growing the kids’ ability to engage and conquer their environment, as well as overcoming obstacles both physically and mentally. Ages 4-5. Sun. Event details.
