MOVE Academy Singapore | The Art of Movement
The Journey Begins
MOVE Academy in Singapore stands for what we represent as a family: a school of like-minded practitioners who love to explore the potential of the body and the mind. We welcome people from all walks of life eager to redefine and push these boundaries together, and more importantly, adopt values that will positively impact not only ourselves but our community.
Not only are practitioners trained to overcome obstacles using various techniques like rolling, jumping and climbing, they are also challenged to reinterpret their definition of what obstacles are through these movement and parkour classes. Most importantly, the physical practice is a tool for self-awareness and discovery of our own limits and potential. The Art of Movement training therefore is a refreshing new way to interact with the urban environment, and inadvertently a way of life.
We believe in a positive relationship with risk and fear, understanding that we can achieve growth when we learn how to mitigate risk and manage our fears through dedicated and deliberate practice. This process of mental and emotional training beyond the physical discipline is an important lifeskill that we can all apply to other parts of our lives.
We are the first academy in Asia to be approved by the Yamakasi, the original founders of Art Du Déplacement (later also known as parkour or freerunning) who started the discipline in Evry & Lisses (suburbs of Paris) in the 1990s. Our physical strength, conditioning, movement and parkour training is inspired by their philosophy, values and original coaching methods.

Art Du Deplacement
Art Du Deplacement (ADD) is, as the French name suggests, the art of movement. It was created in the Paris suburbs by Yamakasi founders Yann Hnautra, Chau Belle and Laurent Piemontesi, with the support of Williams Belle and Guylain N’Guba Boyeke. A movie was later released in 2001 and that contributed to popularising the practice worldwide.
Even though ADD is rooted in philosophy with a specific way of training, it is at the same time constantly evolving in ways that are initiated, inspired and influenced by the Yamakasi founders. As Williams Belle puts it: “The aim is to overcome our mental limitations and appreciate every single moment in life.”
The physical training is only the expression of this philosophy. The quest for physical strength eventually leads to self-discovery and mental resilience.
