Our goals are simple:
1) Provide open access to Parkour, Freerunning, Art du deplacement cultures.
2) Develop community leadership through collaboration, networking, and mutual respect.
A parkour jam is when a bunch of people from all over meet up to train, socialize, and even eat together. The Texas Winter Jam is exactly that, but we've taken it a step further. Here's what you can look forward to:
Massive, diverse community gathering of like-minded characters of all ages, sizes, shapes, colors and backgrounds.
Lots of training. Although we tend to focus on parkour, art du deplacement and freerunning, this event is for a full spectrum of movement practitioners.
Many chances to explore the city and see sights while you train in downtown Austin.
Discounted Food. We do our best to partner with local sponsors to bring you discounted food during your stay.
Professional and organized approach to permitting, safety, security, scheduling and access to good food and facilities.
Time to make new personal and professional connections, and opportunities to catch up with old friends.
Local and National influences. We reach out to parkour gyms, coaches, and companies to bring you a broad variety of inspirations.
Workshops and classes. Coaches, athletes, and organizations are brought directly to the community. With daily warm ups, beginners classes and technical sessions run by experienced practitioners.
The classic “intro to parkour” session, this workshop allows everyone access to our practice.
Know anyone ages 6 - 14 that climbs, runs, and jumps on everything? This is for them.
This is a space for women to train together in a space made by and for women.
We provide a platform for guest athletes, coaches, and community leaders to teach workshops, arrange competitions, set challenges, and anything else they consider valuable to share!
