Intro: How to Do an Assassin's Creed Leap of Faith
A lot of people have asked, "How do u do a real leap of faith?"
Well according to this video, it's hard and is very painful if you don't know what your doing, so be very careful. We'll show you what to do.
I know this gonna feel like two tutorials in one, but once you've mastered them both, put it together, and you'll be super good.
Step 1: Landing
Okay, so forget the part where he does a half frontflip and lands on his back. No.
Learn how to land on your feet before you attempt to land on back.
So first, you should know how to do a proper land.
You're going to want to land on both your feet at a 90 degree knee bend. DO NOT go under 90 degrees it could really hurt you. But also don't go way over 90 either. That could be painful for your knee cap.
And when i say both your feet i mean don't land one foot in front of the other, and definetly don't land on one foot BEFORE the other. Land with them exactly parrellel, and put them at shoulder length away apart.
Step 2: Rolling
I know in the video game the assassin's don't do roll's when they land there leap of faith (probably because they land on there backs!!!), but we are.
If you jump and land like we told u to, and you don't roll, u could seriously hurt yourself. So here's how to do it.
Now i know you've seen a lot of rolls go completely straight. These are called gymnastic rolls. Here's the thing: gymnastic rolls were not made for concrete. If you do it there, you will very seriously injure yourself.
So we're going to teach you a roll that will feel soft on concrete. It's called a parkour roll and your literally moving in a diagonal motion from the back part of your left shoulder to your right hip.
To get the feeling of what it is do this:
Kneel down with your right knee forward putting your hands down like above. Then roll onto the back part of your left shouder, and your body will do the rest. Do this over and over until you get super comfortable with itthe squat down and do it until your comfortable there. Then dive down from standing and do it. As soon as your comfortable there, jump, land and do it it straight down.
