Freerunning Academy Hosts Mario Bros. Tribute

The Tempest Freerunning Academy – which opened its doors just this past weekend – boasts that it’s California’s only training facility solely dedicated to furthering the growth of freerunning and parkour.

An indoor city comprised of over 7,000 square feet of equipment is impressive enough, but we were equally entertained by some 8-bit love featured in the urban obstacle course.

A promotional video for the facility opens by showcasing a Mario-inspired motif. Check out the first bit of footage to see the NES tribute, and stick around for the fascinating displays of athleticism.
