What is Kenaz / Oslo Parkour?
Oslo Parkour is a recently established group based in Oslo. The group was officially founded by Lars Christian Seiersten in 2016, but things have been in development for many years. The group has now established itself as an association with the aim of delivering quality organized parkour activites - classes, performances, jams, open sessions and self-organized activity at an indoor location/meeting point for the parkour community in general.
Oslo Parkour has a close relationship with the main Street Movement organization, which is helping, supporting and mentoring the Oslo family. Several key figures within Oslo Parkour has been, or are currently, going through the Parkour Educator’s Toolbox with Street Movement, and have spent quite a bit of time in Denmark with our most experienced coaches.
We see a huge potential in this constellation and we’re expecting this relationship to grow and expand in the future.
