Parkour Level 2 test

Students must demonstrate mastery of the parkour level 2 material before moving to parkour level 3 classes. In order to do so, they must take a standard parkour level 2 test. The test is pass/fail, and is scaled so that the most difficult movements on the test are first. Failure to complete any element of the test ends the test.

In order to qualify to take the test, students must demonstrate the following strength movements with perfect form:


Handstand on wall (nose to wall) 60 seconds

  • Straight body
  • Hands close to wall

Tuck planche

Tuck planche 10 seconds

  • Hips in line with shoulders

Knees to elbows

Knees to elbows - 10 reps

  • From a dead hang
  • Controlled movement (no yanking up)
  • Knees must come to elbows

Pull ups

5 pull ups

  • One smooth motion
  • Chest to bar
  • Shoulders back/neutral

Decline push ups

10 decline push ups with feet on knee-height obstacle

  • Straight body
  • Elbows around 45 degrees
  • Full range of motion

One-leg squats

5 one-leg (shrimp, first progression) squats each leg
