Staff and Coaches
D’Ondrai Jones has over 18 years of Parkour experience and 7 years of official coaching experience. D’Ondrai started training in Omaha, Nebraska, later moving to Duncanville ,Texas. He then began practicing at a local park where over the course of a year influenced local youth to begin training parkour. The group Duncanville Parkour made a mark in the suburb and the city is now currently planning the build of an official parkour park.
D’Ondrai and his close friends had even bigger goals though. After forming the team ‘Somatic Movement’ he and his friends began creating videos and spreading more parkour media as a team. A select few even started devising a plan on creating a gym. After moving in together to hold each other accountable they were successfully able to open up Somatic Movement Gym Feb of 2017.
D’Ondrai training eventually landed him a sponsorship with Take Flight Parkour Apparel.
This granted D’Ondrai the opportunity to travel around the US creating videos and teaching others. He later took that coaching and put it online through YouTube. There he collected and personally trained individuals around the world. As the views added up, he even landed a few gigs on commercials and video games showcasing his skills eventually to Nerf which is currently running ads around the world. His latest venture came in the form of competitive tag. You can catch him and his team, ‘No Cap’ on World Chase Tag. The events have been broadcasted on both NBCSports and ESPN!
