Allen Smith

Parkour Instructor

Allen Smith is a North Carolina native who was born and raised in the Asheville and Black Mountain areas. After growing up playing in the forests and rivers of the beautiful mountains of WNC, a sport like parkour just comes naturally to him. He started training in the discipline of parkour to prepare for his goal of being a contestant on American Ninja Warrior, but the hobby took on a life of its own and has become a true calling. His teaching style focuses on safety, self discipline, self confidence, and self determination. Besides parkour and freerunning, some of Allen’s hobbies include making music, hiking, golfing, metal detecting, computer technology, and gaming; he has a professional background in graphic design, web development, construction, and craft woodworking.
