Parkour UK Members Glasgow Parkour Girls are organising the first International Women’s Day Parkour Clamjamfrie, with a two-day gathering in Glasgow on March 8th and 9th. The event will bring together women from across Scotland, the UK and internationally.
The Clamjamfrie will be structured to provide coaching for women of all abilities, with especial focus on those new to the discipline, including absolute beginners. So if you’ve wanted to give parkour a try, this is the perfect opportunity! This event is a welcoming, supportive environment for women to challenge themselves in new physical disciplines, and to learn from each other.
Coaches from the UK, Italy and Sweden will provide varied insights into training methods, and we will be welcoming participants from far and wide to celebrate women in Parkour! There will be skill-sharing sessions for participants to learn from women accomplished in other movement disciplines, such as circus skills, strongwoman and capoeira.
‘Clamjamfrie’ is an old Scots word, meaning a large and loud group. This sums up our aims: we want to bring together a big pack of women, to train and laugh together, and to loudly declare our presence (even if we’re landing softly!)
The Clamjamfrie will take place on March 8th & 9th 2014, to coincide with International Women’s Day. This will be two days, packed full of training, and includes a wee social event on Saturday evening (to make sure there are loads of opportunities for chat!)
Tickets for the event are just £20 pounds, and that includes two days of training and an event t-shirt. You can buy your ticket here.
