On a sparkling but chilly Saturday morning at London's Southbank, Kerbie put together Worldwide JAM's first team to appear on Brazil's top rating show 'FANTASTICO'.



Keeping to our principle of being neutral, Worldwide JAM will never have the same faces hogging the media limelight. Our idea is to have a constantly changing team of talented traceurs who can demonstrate Parkour to the global media and be true ambassadors for the movement.

If you feel you have what it takes, we have some great opportunities coming up for you to get involved.











Host of Fantastico, Zeca Camargo
gets the inside scoop from DC.

A few weeks ago our office was contacted by Zeca Camargo, host of Fantastico, who wanted to produce a news item for Brazil's prime time extravaganza beamed to an average audience of over 50 million.

Since the first conversations, Zeca had found a number of PK crews emerging in cities like Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. He was interested to find out what Parkour was all about and why the movement is capturing the imagination of people globally.

On Saturday morning, Kerbie brought together Worldwide JAM's first media team that included DC, Emily and Southbank regulars Stoney and Ash.
A good mix of different crews and styles.

Under the London Eye, Zeca interviewed the team at length about the origins of Parkour and the development of the movement in the U.K.

Instant friendships were made with both Zeca and Brazil's top cameraman Paulo.

After 30 minutes of interviewing the team went through the importance of a warm up by demonstrating some of the exercises right there at the foot of the London Eye. Some of the onlookers were very perplexed by what they were seeing. The importance of checking surfaces before attempting anything was also shown by Kerbie and then it was onto the basic techniques demonstration. This is where some of the more basic Vaulting techniques and Rolls were explained and demonstrated.

MORE PICS AND WORDS ARE ARRIVING SOON.

Kerbie and Emily take a break to discuss the next shot.

We moved onto the Saatchi Gallery with a great view to the Houses of Parliament where some slightly more advanced techniques were shown, i.e. the Kong to Cat over the stairway. This was a great opportunity to show where the individual basic techniques that were shown earlier can then be used to form a longer run.

Then it was off, back to 'Shell-du-Lac' where we were joined by Ash and Stoney and showed more of the vaults, but this time advanced Vaults where there was a bit of a drop on the one side of the wall.

Finally after all that (and more), we demonstrated a warm down. Something that is very often forgotten in most practise sessions today.

The team were joined by a number of some of the regular (and not so regular) traceurs down at south bank on the day. It ended up being a bit of an impromptu workshop which was a nice surprise. Some of the new guys there really got to improve their game a bit, and that was only after a short session with the team. We say all the best and hope they keep practising those basics so that we can get to jam again sometime soon.

The final cut will be broadcast on Sunday 11th December. There's a good chance we might be able to screen the show via Broadband on this site, so stay tuned for further announcements.
