New to parkour, would love any advice,tips,etc .
« on: May 22, 2010, 09:32:08 PM »
Well my brother and I started doing parkour about 2 days ago , I play other sports like basketball and soccer, but am seeming to like this a lot .

As I said before I have been doing parkour for 2 days therefore I'm still learning the basics and working on my roll .. I was wondering the best ways to progress with my roll such as going from crouching/ standing rolls on soft groud , to jumps into rolls on soft ground , then rolls on the concrete .

Thanks,
Alec

Ummm well you just have to be confident with your role dont stop midway or you might hurt yourself keep practicing until your comfortable with your roll.

When doing a roll, everything should be partly instinct. Most people know not to roll on their heads so they roll on their shoulders. If your doing a roll and it doesnt feel right, your probably doing it wrong.
