Why We Are

the best movement school in Houston

 
 

Urban Movement is an official Ambassador of the Yamakasi founder's ADD Academy based in Paris, France. ADD stands for "Art Du Deplacement". If you trace the lineage you will find that ADD is the source of Parkour and Freerunning. Similar to how we have our UMOVE Academy here in Houston, our friends have multiple ADD Academy locations all around the world. Chau Belle flew in from Paris to Houston to teach a workshop in celebration of the Grand Opening of our first gym.

Urban Movement is an official MovNat Licensed Facility. Our CEO, Cameron Pratto, is on the MovNat Certification Instructor Team. MovNat is also known as Natural Movement fitness. MovNat is a fitness and physical education system based on the full range of natural human movement skills. The MovNat system trains physical competence for practical performance. Erwan Le Corre went above and beyond to get to Houston to also help us celebrate the Grand Opening of our first gym.

Urban Movement has multiple ADAPT certifications. Our staff is the largest known collective of experienced, professional coaches certified by the industry-leading qualifications offered by MovNat and A.D.A.P.T. MovNat is a complete system of Natural Movement Fitness. A.D.A.P.T. is the global standard for ADD, Parkour and Freerunning instruction. Cameron Pratto is also on the MovNat team traveling the world teaching their workshops and certifications. Our COO, Wes Hamner, has a Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and he is the Lead Playworker at the Parish School - a nationally accredited special needs school here in Houston. Our General Manager, Mike Buchanek, has a Masters of Education and he's an Instructional Specialist at Waltrip High School, also in Houston. With experience like that comes an earned knowledge base that says, "we know what we're doing".

Our classes are challenging but scalable, technical but fun, demanding but rewarding, and we leave no new student behind.
