Much more than Parkour

Parkour has gone a long way since it's very first beginnings with the méthode naturelle in the 60ies.

Ollerup Vinter Jam 2016

First time when i was in Ollerup Gymnastic School i was impressed by beauty, size of the school and perfect organization.
Second time i discovered some new areas of this amazing, huge, almost 100 years old school, so i was much more impressed. Presence of indoor/outdoor parkour park, trampoline hall, dining hall, fun hall, conference, cinema, sauna swiming pool and many many more supercool stuff. Put Ollerup events on "next level" jams.
This time the number of guests was limited to ensure that everyone can have enough space to train at free will.
