Parkour Answered

Does anyone out there do parkour or freerunning? If you do, post tips for others or say what you can do. I would also be happy if anyone posted a video of themselves or anyone else doing parkour and freerunning.

Well, I really would like to do parkour, and so far I can only do a running roll, occasional do a Tic-Tac, I've almost mastered Tic-Tac to Catleap, percisioning, And would like help on Vaults, rolling from high places, (3 ft plus,) and a few others. Seriously, how do you roll from a high up place? -RoAr

rolling is easier from heights above 8 ft or so, like rooves. You need forward momentum to carry yourself forward, and you must:
  • Land on your toes rather than your heels
  • Cushion the impact with your hands
  • Go over your shoulder.
Hope this helps :)

I have been known to dablle in parkour/freerunning, but mostly as a means of escaping pursuit. When not quite so motivated, I can do a lot less, but I still enjoy it.

I mostly do urban freerunning at my school like jumping trash cans and running up walls. My friend jeremy and I make a great team.
