On September 20th, 2003, a few Vancouver based parkour people organized the city’s first jam.
I’m not sure who applied the term “jam” to a parkour gathering, but it works. Random people meet and play together. Everyone watches each others moves, and pick up tips on how to improve.
There was about 8 of us in total, and we headed up to SFU to check out the nice concrete architecture there. We played around on a few rooftops, found a couple interesting gaps, and practiced some cat leaps, rolls, and dive rolls.
Definitely an introductory meet up to what will surely grow into a thriving scene. Parkour has a lot of potential for new movements, everyone is in the learning stage at this point, which is an exciting place to be.
