Re: Parkour/Free-running

parkour is an art,not a sport. It is a state of mind.It is a form of escape.I once escaped from a guy pinning me this way.Anyone who gets it from movies will find it harder to grasp this philosophy.

Re: Parkour/Free-running

i need to find a good place to do this, we have a semi-metropolitan area but they basically built the place not to be climbed on unless you can spider walk up the alley walls. once your on the rooves its a lot more fun but its hard to get up there. there is also a good place to practice climbing which i have gone to for a while, you have to really have built arms to get up though

run 'n roll safely,

Re: Parkour/Free-running

I'm a beginner traceuse and I'm practicing vaults, I'm working on monkey vaults over short walls and bars and other vaults and rolling. But I'm having trouble because the area I live in has a lot of slanted obstacles and not really easy areas to climb and leap off for a beginner.
I'm trying to get back into it.

Any tips?

I feel like David simply invented parkour before me... I've bee doing this stuff all my life before discovering it's a popular thing. The roll is excellent but I dropped 14 feet onto cement and landed like a frog with hands and feet uninjured :) just thought i'd share that, also i've been fooling around at parks, wood chips are a really good cushion to jump onto from heights.

I don't mean to be condescending, or to offend you in any way; however, I wouldn't give any advice without doing some research first ( there are quite a few impressionable beginners that could seriously injure themselves if provided with the wrong information. Yes, you can land " like a frog " from 14 feet jumps and not feel anything, but the reason you roll is to redirect your forward movement so that you can bounce back quickly, while avoiding injuring yourself. Despite the fact that you feel fine, your putting a lot of stress on your joints and muscles when you make a static landing like that. Long story short, you are doing damage that will permanently affect you for the rest of your life, and you won't notice it until youre in your thirties/fourties.
