Nos, a forum regular at American Parkour recently got a chance to talk to Mid Day magazine about Parkour in India and the India National Jam. Here are some of the highlights form the article.
“We organise local Parkour events on a regular basis, but this is our all India annual event.
This includes practitioners from all over the country, who come to the city to take part in the
event and practice Parkour today,” says Nos, the organiser of the event.
Their are several Parkour communities in India. Nos sees this event as a way "to get together, practice and show people what Parkour is all about.”
Their will be an emphasis on safety with two segments discussing and demostrating how to train safely.

It’s an invitation only event as it will be very extreme and difficult, with only trained practitioners of Parkour participating in it. However, it will be treat to watch for others,” Nos assure us.
For safety reasons the sledgehammer event is by invitation only.
