IT WAS BACK TO SCHOOL FOR PROZAC AND KERBIE THIS WEEK AS WORLDWIDE JAM GOT INTO THE SPIRIT OF BROADWATER SCHOOL'S ACTIVITY WEEK.

Prozac meets some of the students


Kerbie had an impromptu autograph signing session







A few of the 50 students who attended

Thanks to an invitation from Broadwater School, Prozac and Kerbie volunteered their time to stage a grass roots workshop as part of the schools activity week.

Two one hour workshops in the stifling heat of July 19th (the U.K.s hottest July day on record) attracted 50 students, most of whom had very limited or no experience in the fundamentals of Parkour.

After a short briefing session about the history of Parkour, Kerbie started the sessions with a 5 minute warm-up (as if the students needed warming up even more). This was followed by an introduction to developing good role technique.

Once satisfied the students had grasped the principle of the role, the trainers moved on to vaults (Passement) and underbars (
Franchissement) culminating in a short course using the gyms apparatus.

It was amazing to see how many students who initially lacked confidence started to develop a new awareness of what their bodies could actually do and how far they could push themselves outside their comfort zones. This was particularly true for the girls who made up approx 40% of the attendees.

"It gave a tremendous boost to the student's confidence and made them all realise that they could achieve much more than they thought" Liz Eves

Both Prozac and Kerbie were ever mindful to work with the students individual capabilities and ensure that whatever their standard, they only pushed their boundaries when they felt completely confident to do so.

It was obvious that a few of the students already possessed some really good PK skills and many stuck around well after the sessions had finished to get some more 'one on one' with their coaches.

The enthusiasm of the students was fantastic and such was the success of the workshops, that Broadwater has invited Worldwide JAM to consider staging the tutorials on a regular basis.

"It gave a tremendous boost to the student's confidence and made them all realise that they could achieve much more than they thought" said Liz Eves, Activity Week Co-Ordinator, Broadwater School.

Worldwide JAM would like to thank Linda Goldsmith, Fiona Spena and Liz Eves from Broadwater for making us so welcome. They even offered us free school dinners....unfortunately a prior engagement suddenly came up!!!!
