Adam Truesdell has been an active member of the parkour community since 2006. He then found a few other practitioners who came together to create "Parkour Visions," a nonprofit organization devoted to promoting safe and fun teaching techniques. In 2007, Adam moved to Los Angeles, CA to work as a stuntman in the entertainment industry. He was sponsored by the "World Federation of Parkour and Freerunning," worked on MTV's “Ultimate Parkour Challenge," Spike TV’s "1000 Ways to Die," and most notably competed against over 5,000 contestants to win a top 10 spot on G4's "American Ninja Warrior." This earned Adam a parkour coaching position at the world famous "White Lotus Martial Arts Center."
Adam has since devoted his life to coaching kids and adults in various physical disciplines.
