Back in June, I joined Parkour Generations at the Chainstore Gym in East India Docks, London, for a parkour workshop and author talk.
My third Zac Boateng crime thriller, Life or Death, saw detective Kat Jones learning parkour, developing strength and skills including the ‘wall run’. Since I’d trained with PKGen back in the day, I chose to set these scenes at PKGen classes to make her drills and challenges realistic.
PKGen Founder Dan Edwardes led a movement class in the gym, focusing on quadrupedal motion. After this, we sat down for an interview followed by Q&A. This might’ve been the world’s first parkour crime fiction workshop. I hope it’s not the last.
