WORLDWIDE JAM PARKOUR WORKSHOP
Woking Leisure Centre, Surrey

May 2nd
Coaches: Teige, Calum, Joe and Jake
Thanks to Fiona Spena for the photographs

Worldwide JAM kicked off its 2009 Parkour Workshop Program with a well attended event at the Woking Leisure Centre in Surrey.

TO SEE MORE PHOTOS FROM THE EVENT

Parkour workshops form the backbone of Worldwide JAM’s ongoing education strategy teaching the principles and fundamentals of the discipline to a rapidly growing global community.

Supported by local schools and colleges the workshop, which was the third to be staged in Surrey (University of Surrey and Guildford Spectrum), attracted 50+ students over two, two hour sessions.

With 95% of the students being beginners, the Worldwide JAM 'Street Team' coaches were able to tailor the training accordingly. This was especially important for WOKING I which was attended by students with ages ranging from 7 to 44.

Teige and Calum got the blood flowing and muscles limbered with a 5 minute warm-up session which.

As many who have attended Worldwide JAM Parkour Workshops in the past will know, our sessions do not concentrate on technique alone. We are also committed to getting people to understand how their bodies work and just how important physical fitness contributes to developing parkour skills. Increasing fitness and strength can also help reduce the chances of physical injury.

Worldwide JAM would like to take this opportunity to thank Jon Hames from Woking Leisure Centre for giving Parkour and Worldwide JAM a new base for its Surrey Workshops.

In essence Parkour can be seen as a fitness regime designed for young people by young people. Every month the global parkour population is growing by approximately 10% and having safe places to train and teach parkour is absolutely crucial. It’s great to see venues like Woking Leisure getting behind the workshops and the young people in the region.

In conclusion the WOKING I workshop was such a great success that we've invited back and are now taking enrollments for WOKING II on June 6th
