WORLDWIDE JAM PARKOUR WORKSHOP
Woking Leisure Centre, Surrey

June 6th
Coaches: Teige, Calum and Ash
Thanks to Fiona Spena for the photographs

Worldwide JAM returned to Woking Leisure centre on the weekend to stage the WOKING II Parkour Workshop. With attendance 35% up on the first Woking event last month, it was obvious that Parkour was beginning to capture the imagination of young people (and adults) in the region. Over 50% of the students were from Woking itself and the workshops also attracted two students who made the trip all the way from Norfolk.

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.

As with WOKING I, over 90% of the students classified themselves as beginners, but yet again the Worldwide JAM 'Street Team' coaches were able to tailor the training accordingly. The age range for WOKING II was 7-38 years old with the average student age being 10.93. Compared to the 16.5 average age at WOKING I it shows that more younger people are wanting to get involved with the worlds fastest growing sport.



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.

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.


Above and Below: Because the workshops attracted so many students 12 and under, special attention was focussed on safe and technique.


In conclusion the WOKING II workshop was an greater success than WOKING I and we're now looking forward to making WOKING III even better.
