Hello TST,

I have moved your topic to the Louisiana board. Please read the following thread first before posting in the future:

Are you just starting Parkour or is there anything in specific you wish to learn? If you are just starting I would strongly recommend learning how to roll first before moving on to basic vault. Most of us at APK emphasize the importance of learning how to properly fall and recover before learning the more extreme movements. Remember, it's important to learn how to fall before you learn how to fly.

There is a great thread posted on here talking about proper way. Please give it a read, as it will help prevent yourself from injury:

Like most of us starting out we relied on Youtube tutorials to get us going. I posted some videos below to help get you started on the basics. If you have any questions, feel free to ask us in the Movement Board (http://americanparkour.com/smf/index.php/board,2.0.html).
