Angel Abiang, Jr.Partner & Co-Founder
I was introduced to parkour and its community through the passion and training of my son. I was amazed at how inviting, encouraging, and supportive the parkour community was to him. I quickly realized that these weren't the daredevils, rebels, and reckless renegades that society perceived. Instead these were incredible athletes and artists who saw the environment differently; people who weren't bound by predetermined paths, barriers, or walls but people free to reimagine the environment through their creative movement. I felt inspired to help change how society views parkour and its community so I joined the team and help establish Bay Area Movement.
Diana SilvaPartner & Co-Founder
As an avid runner and a mother, few things make me happier than to see my son's passion and love for parkour. Like all mothers I want my son to not only be healthy but have fun while doing it. I've seen the amazing benefits parkour training has had on him and I'd like to help other families experience these benefits as well.

I found parkour on accident and soon came to love doing it. The longer I practiced the more I realized parkour is something not too many females pursue, and inspired me to want to show people that girls can do it too.
I joined the Bay Area Movement team because I wanted to help spread parkour throughout the community. I want to help others learn to appreciate and love the art just like how I have come to love it. You’ll occasionally find me teaching a class, but majority of my involvement revolves around designing and branding Bay Area Movement.
