Parkour




Ok hey again RE members, in my previous egg some of you said

"Keep the parkour eggs coming"

So that's what I'll do :)

Now I'm assuming most of you don't do parkour so ill give you a run down.

Flips are not parkour, that is freerunning

Parkour is getting from Point A to Point B as quick as possible. (Flow)

Freerunning is doing flips in joined with parkour but you don't necessarily go for a run…

Now I've seen all these eggs on RE of people just c/p pages worth of information that just says to get fit eat healthy blah blah blah…

No-one wants to do that, we just wanna get out there and do it :)

A few first basic tricks ill teach you are… (in this egg)

-vault
-cat leap
-wall run
- dive roll


The vault

First of all…
There are many types of vaults; I will start of by teaching you some of the simplest.
-Normal



-180 vault


-Kong



-lazy



-360 vault



-Dash

Errrr… I couldn't find any footage of me doing a dash vault so
a video :)

Ok first up...

The vault :P




*Stand close your vault with your hands right around it.
*Swing your body back stretching out your arms
*Jump and pull yourself up in one motion
*Move both legs to your appropriate side
*Drop of and down onto the other side :)

180 Vault



*Stand close your vault with your hands right around it.
*one hand palm facing downwards the other palm facing upwards (this is so that when you're on the other side of your vault your hand doesn't get bent around backwards.
*Swing your body back stretching out your arms
*Jump and pull yourself up in one motion
*start to move your body around in your preferred direction
*take one hand of
*grab back on with the same hand on the other side of your hand as you start to fall back down on the other side
*brace your feet and land back down on whatever it is that your landing on

Kong



(You don't have to vault things this far at first you work up to it)

A kong is just a vault where you dive into the vault and your legs go between your arms not on either side
Start with a small dive and gradually make the dive longer..


*approach your vault with sum decent speed
*jump early leaning forwards with your hands out front
*make your hands make contact with the table taking a considerable amount of weight
*push hard and
