Coach Assistant - Dominic Hill
"Parkour is one of those sports that is one of a kind, you won’t find anything else like it. So just take it up all ready."
Dominic Hill was born in Margate. He is currently taking his A levels in Psychology, Product design and Sports science. In 2019, he is starting his degree in Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation at the University of Kent. One of his life achievements is obtaining a Black belt in Tae Kwon Do. He’s interests in Badminton and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He completes a role of a Gymnastics coach assistant at a local leisure centre, when he is not studying.
His passion for Parkour is articulated through his actions and practices. He teaches with Parkour mottos and ethos in mind such as 'Strong sprit and Strong mind'. He enjoys being able to express himself through movements, and the endless possibilities and diversity the sport has to offer. He feels the community is one of the best parts of sports participation providing others with healthy social engagement. He feels there is nothing better than going out training with your friends and exploring movement together. He believes that the longer you train for, the better training becomes, as you unlock so much more. He looks forward to his own personal development and gains from Parkour, that he can pass on to the community.
