The third annual DFW Massive Jam will be held July 27 and 28, in Fort Worth and Euless, bringing awareness of Parkour, the noncompetitive sport of navigating obstacles in the most efficient way possible through the art of movement. Participants run an obstacle route utilizing skills such as vaulting, rolling, swinging and wall scaling in an
attempt to conquer all.
Jams are held in environments that offer obstacles and challenges that are diverse and non-conventional. Local Parkour instructors will be teaching and demonstrating techniques and making sure everyone understands the movements in order to resolve and overcome obstacles.
“Bring some comfortable clothing and a water bottle and you are set to train and learn the basics of Parkour,” states Jenin Gonzalez, a professional Parkour instructor and team stunt coordinator. “Whether you’re seeking instruction, curious about Parkour or just wanting to watch, understanding how your body moves helps you to grow physically and to get in better shape. Overcoming obstacles mentally allows the body to grow stronger emotionally.”
The two-day event is open to attendees and spectators. The first day of the event (in Fort Worth) is free; $10 fee for second day of the event (in Euless).
