- Parkour training sessions that teach participants how to make the most of their training and how to increase their training effectiveness.
- Teaching Parkour to disadvantaged people in detention centre’s.
- The spreading of Parkour to the wider community in Australia.
- The creation of a positive image of Parkour and its participants to the wider community.
