Event Description

Hi I'm Aero. I started these monthly jams like 3 years ago as a way for traceurs from all around to commit once a month to do parkour together in the biggest group/community possible.(we didnt use to have 8 sessions a week...)

There will be a coaches group (ME,Lethalbeef, Marisa) leading a FREE Beginner Foundations Workshop for the first time ever at a monthly jam.
This workshop will be 1.5 hours and will emcompass everything a traceur needs to be able to flow efficiently into a Jam-like setting. Basic progressions will be taught and will cover QM, Rolls, Vaulting, Climbups, and Risk Assesment/Decision Making skills.

There will also be the massive Monthly Jam occuring at the same location after the workshop if you would like to try out some of the drills and progressions in a jam setting.

There will be several experienced traceurs and Parkour Instructors at this jam that would be willing to lend tips and super secret progressions to any and all who ask. It is also just a good opportunity to see how other experienced members of THE ENITRE BAY AREA WIDE PARKOUR COMMUNITY (SC-SF-SAC).

Alot of non-local traceurs travel 3+ hours to get to these jams!!

The Foundations Workshop will be from 12:00-1:30PM. We will have instructors to help accomadate you if you arrive late and still wish to participate/"catch-up" in the workshop.

Give me a call with any questions you may have- (949)677-9507

I think the level and type of structure will continue to be at the discretion of the "host" community. In the meantime, the SFPK beginner's classes will continue and, again, I really encourage anyone with coaching talent or experience to come help out. They especially need regular volunteers for the SF classes, since most of SFpk's teachers are in the East Bay.

Hey now, that's easy to say when you travel in a climate-controlled bubble.

Sounds like the session went well. Will these workshops be continuing at the following monthlies? (Pun intended on my last comment btw)

Bah, bad weather. That's just silly talk, Niko and you know it. We had some heavy mist early on, which made rolls mildly unpleasant, but personally I prefer a little less sun when training hard. Everyone was pretty enthusiastic about jumping on board which made accomodating the different skill levels of 25+ traceurs tricky. We basically decided to work on a few progressions and led simultaneous beginner and intermediate versions that people could choose to participate in (i.e. rolls on a panel mat for beginners and transitioning to concrete for the more advanced guys). Not really what we expected, but I think it turned out pretty well and everyone seemed to be having fun.

The place held up pretty well with the large crowd, especially the first area where some could play in the trees while others were on the rails of the playground. A little trickier to fit a big group in the tighter concrete areas, but by then everyone had kind of gotten a feel for how people were moving.

Bailing on this due to weather. Next time

Won't be able to attend, due to a previous commitment.
Maybe another time...

I think the Monthly Jams can vary a great deal depending on which community is hosting. There is always coaching and instruction happening, but I think these jams continue to pride themselves on being particularly "user-generated"

I won't be back in town until a week later, but just wanted to say it's good to see some dedicated teaching and learning time is going to happen at the Monthly (maybe it's been that way for a while and I just haven't been to one since it's been going on?).
