About Parkour

Parkour is the art of traversing a series of obstacles in one continuous, graceful motion. The magnitude and technicality of a move are of secondary importance to the ultimate objective:

Fluidity of Execution

Parkour first came to major prominence in 2003 with the screening of director Mike Christie’s documentary ‘Jump London’ (Channel 4, U.K.) The film has been widely credited as the catalyst that inspired the global movement.

To many, Parkour is an extreme sport. To others it’s a discipline more comparable to martial arts. Some believe it’s an art form akin to dance, but whatever the description, Parkour is a sport that encapsulates human movement in its most beautiful, dynamic and explosive form.

There has been much media attention in recent times about the high levels of apathy and obesity in our modern youth. Parkour, however, provides a stimulating platform that promotes personal fitness, inner growth and healthy living. It encompasses diet, training, discipline and camaraderie.

 

 





Welcome to Worldwide JAM

Communities of mind are collections of individuals who are bonded together by natural will and a set of shared ideals.

As the name suggests Worldwide JAM is about community. A collection of likeminded people from all walks of life who congregate to practise their art.

What started in 2005 as a London based team of traceurs working towards a common goal has now become an international hub of Parkour related news and information.

From it’s humble beginnings Worldwide JAM is one of the worlds leading Parkour organisations and our website visited by people representing over 150 countries. United Kingdom to Uzbekistan, Canada to Cambodia and Poland to Peru, Worldwide JAM is assisting Parkour to break down geographical, religious, political and racial boundaries.

Providing a platform for traceurs to express themselves without restraint is one of our major objectives, another is dispelling the misconception that Parkour is a dangerous sport to local authorities, parents and the media alike.

Our role is as facilitator; to assist participants of Parkour overcome initial scepticism from the local community and develop imaginative methods to promote the substratal philosophy.

As a two way street we also liaise with the regional Parkour population to identify specific needs that the local community and authorities may be able to fulfil. Thus creating a valuable stream of new opportunity.

Parkour is already booming and it’s now up to organisations like Worldwide JAM, crews, individual participants and the local authorities to work together in the development and promotion of safe practice initiatives.
