One of the most prominent names in the global female scene is Kat, from Mexico. A key member of the Monosurbanos group in Mexico city, she first became known to many of us in Europe when she posted her first video on Youtube. Her strength and dynamic style along with a tidy set  of technical moves stood out and started to draw some attention.
She has since gone on to develop those skills and is now a highly talented traceuse who displays not only a high level of commitment to her own training and development but also to that of others. She teaches both male and female classes and her enthusiasm and effort in creating girl jams and classes have led to a surge of interest from females in Mexico city.
In April this year, a new video appeared of Kat that displays some of the most fluid and dynamic action to be seen by any female practitioner today. She is an inspiration both locally in Mexico, and worldwide, to all us girls, and shows what can be achieved through dedication and discipline. Many thanks and happy training Kat!

4. Tell us about you:
I’m 21 years old and I’m studying graphic design. Besides from Parkour I enjoy singing.How did you get into parkour?
I was invited to participate in it by RoKk, he was a friend of mine and my capoeira instructor a few years ago, so told me about Parkour and asked me If I wanted to join because he thought I had the potential to be good at it, so I went to train and liked it so much.
5. How long have you been practising: 3 years now.
6. What does parkour mean to you in less than 5 words:
Physical and mental challenges and solutions.
7. Whats your best parkour related achievement to date: Watching my own physical and attitude progress and spreading Parkour to other girls to see how women are really starting to develop in this activity.

8. What is your favourite parkour move: I don’t have one, because I think more about effective movement instead of thinking of one technique.
9. What advice would you give to other girls thinking of getting in to parkour? I would tell them to be constant. Instead of thinking about doing a movement or overcoming some obstacle they should think about training constantly and progress will come in time.


Big thank you to Kat and RoKk.
