The Chicago community came out and represented well for the first ever event of its kind in the Windy City. On behalf of Pull Up Park Jam Inc. and the Go Infinite Tribe we just wanna say THANK YOU for helping to make this event a huge success. Chicago is officially on the map!!
We are not makers of history. We are made by it.
Our Chicago event is product of what Pull Up Park Jam (PUPJ) started 17 years ago. For over 15 years PUPJ has funded the New York event out-of-pocket but PUPJ is now a nonprofit and rely solely on our donations and sponsors to continue the mission of promoting health and fitness. Please support their cause by donating here.
Big shout to Keith Fields CEO/Co-Founder of Pull Up Park Jam Inc for supporting us in bringing this monumental event to Chicago. Also, big thanks to Quincy “Q” France, the CEO/Co-Founder of the Brotherhood who has also been a huge support for us in this movement. Both of them flew in from New York to provide their guidance and expertise to the Chicago event. Without these two legends it could not have happened.
Another big thanks to the camera crew Raphie Reyes and JayEx of spekhaus for holding it down for the entire event. Raphie was the first-in and last-out, that's a real hustla right there. Video coming soon! Julius Collins of Hybrid Martial Arts for coming out with his crew. And can't forget the Go Infinite Tribe: Donna, Patrick, Marvin, Lee, Ted and Niko for all the help with keeping the event well organized and keeping us on track with the time.
Chicago to Set the Standard
Our goal is to organize and bring awareness of the bar culture to the Chicago community . With all of your help and efforts we can build something great and set the standard for performance and judging around the world. By focusing on maintaining strict form in our training, competing, and judging we can set ourselves apart from other cities and events. Strict form will help us maintain the integrity of the sport and culture we love. Although it has now grown to include freestyle and "street-workout", everything begins with fundamentals and that is essence of the Pull Up Park Jam's message of "Reppin the Basics."
