New London Team Member: Arturo Vigil
New Team Member: We are very happy to announce the latest addition to our London Team of coaches and athletes – Arturo Vigil!
Arturo began his training in parkour in 2009 in Spain and has never looked back. Practicing at first largely by himself, Arturo dedicated himself to mastery of the discipline, drawing on his background in capoeira and other martial arts as well as extensive training in calisthenics to inspire his uniquely creative and fluid movement style.
Quickly developing a passion to help others learn and improve, Arturo moved to London and – overcoming language as well as the other substantial barriers that come with moving to live in a foreign country – began training at the Parkour Generations London Academy, eventually qualifying as a coach via the internationally recognised ADAPT Qualifications. Arturo perfectly reflects our philosophy of parkour as a transformative practice and holistic movement discipline through which to change one’s life.
We are incredibly excited to welcome Arturo to the PKGen London Coaching Team, where he will be running several classes a week including morning Parkour Fitness and evening Parkour Classes both at the Chainstore Gym and across London. Come join the movement!
