Welcome to What the F*- wait, I mean Warwick Tricking and Freerunning!!
We don't care if you're a boy, a girl, a cat or a brick. Anyone can join and we guarantee if you keep coming to training you'll be able to flip or vault outside whenever you feel like it!
Honestly, you might be sceptical about your ability to do this and think: "It looks awesome but I could NEVER do that myself!"
Genuinely ANYONE can do this sport no matter what your shape or size.
We've seen 50 year olds with beer bellies consistently train until even they can flip!
Well what exactly is the Warwick Tricking & Freerunning society?
We are a society catering to all those who wish to practice Parkour, Freerunning, Tricking, and Gymnastics or just have fun! To help save on confusion here is a brief description of the differences between the sports:
Parkour: Getting from point 'A' to point 'B' as quickly and as efficiently as possible. It is a non-competitive sport of traversing mainly urban landscapes using only your body. Skills such as vaulting, rolling, swinging and wall scaling are employed. No flips
Tricking: A relatively new underground alternative sport movement which combines martial arts with gymnastics and any other medium such as breakdancing to create an "aesthetic blend of flips, kicks, and twists."
Free Running: This sport is a hybrid of Parkour and Tricking, the only goal is to "enjoy the art of movement". It combines the efficient moves and vaults of Parkour with the aesthetically pleasing flips of Tricking. It is practised outside in urban areas and all manner of styles are used.
We have two sessions a week, taking place at Coventry Sports Centre, Fairfax Street, Coventry CV1 5RY. These are ridiculously cheap - for just £5!
Session times are as follows:
Wednesday, 1pm to 4pm
Thursday, 7pm to 9pm
We will also organise trips to Woodlands gym, to use their foam pit, Keep eyes and ears on the Facebook group for these.
We occasionally train in Coventry which is an INCREDIBLE city to practice parkour and/or freerunning.
Socials will be atleast once every 2 weeks and the day will depend on what were doing. Get invited to the events by joining the Societies Facebook Page. We have them:
On Campus- We love the Fresh so we have socials on their doorstep, we will circle and end up at POP or Top B.
Off Campus- There are many nights out in leam, not that we will remember them all...
After Session- We love to train hard but we equally love eating at Nando's. This will happen whenever somebody suggests it.
From time to time we will take the opportunity to show off our skills on stage, some include the 2013 Fashion Show where we somersaulted down the catwalk in £130 Onepiece's!! and Worlds got Talent!
To get in touch with the society the best approach is to:
We love a good video, most of us getting into the sport from watching countless numbers of them, heres a video of some of our members:
For those that think you need to be skinny or muscular to do this:
