Ryan was influenced by movement from age 1, Walking at only 7 months old, he quickly learned about gravity and its consequences when he broke his arm doing a front flip at 3 years old. Full bio Here
Marcus Paul Wilson
Always been an active person, participating in different sports. Football, Kuk-Sool-One and Swimming until I was 14 where I then started training and decided I had a big interest in Parkour ever since my passion has grown for it. I’m free to move in my own way, which makes Parkour unique to other sports as you are free to your move how you like! It has gave me many great opportunities, one of which being traveling to different places to train and meet up with other people who share the same interest and can push each other to progress.

Parkour has been a way for me to deal with my loses and push for the future. As far as Parkour is concerned, I have been climbing/jumping ever since I was born but didn’t take up serious training until about 4 years ago, I have a very broad background consisting of Soccer, bowling, wrestling, body building, boxing, Inline Skating, Breakdancing, baseball, basketball, & pool. I love movement, doesn’t matter what your into. I try and tie whatever I can into my own movement and illustrate it in whatever environment I come across. Full bio Here
As one of the top female parkour athletes in the world, Katie has been continuously raising the bar for female athletes in the sport. With appearances in movies, commercials, and more Kaite has become more then just a mover.
I started when I was maybe 2-3 years old. My mom went with me to the gym (Judo) and I saw some people doing flips, I was amazed and I really wanted to do flips too. I tried some flips onto a crashmat and afterwards I tried flips in my home. I also love to watch movies with Jackie Chan! I start training Parkour in the street on scaffolding and a little later I start training break dancing.
When I was 9, I learned to swim and one day after I went to the bridge and jumped into water from 10, 15 and then 20 meters. For me, sand was a gym, so I spend summers training on the river. Two years later I could do double flips and dives. I would be training all day with my friends, parkour, breakdance, diving. Full bio Here
