Parkour / Re: How to kong/monkey/cat pass something on an angle
« on: April 06, 2015, 12:08:20 AM »
Ok I'm assuming you're clipping on the higher side of the slant rather than the lower side, ride?

If that's the case you're probably only getting your hips high enough to clear the lower side without realizing that you should be trying to make your whole body able to clear the height of the highest part you're touching. So essentially the answer is the same as any other kong, just get your hips up more and maybe take away from farther. It's just tricky because the angle is there and it's a rail so hand placement has to be precise.
Thanks! It really helps. When I go into it, should I actually go into an angle or just go straight?

Parkour / Re: How to kong/monkey/cat pass something on an angle

Hello everybody,
I'm decent at kong vaults but I remember seeing this video and someone konged a vault that was sloping downwards. I've tried this, but I can only do it if it's sloping slightly. I tried doing it a bit further but I keep clipping one of my feet. Sorry if this is a bit vague. Anyway, something else I want to know is if it's be more effective to do a different vault instead, and if so, which one. If you have any questions, feel free to ask
I have no idea on how to upload a picture so I'll just post this website: http://www.oceangrovepark.org.au/funandfitnessequipment scroll down to the very bottom and you'll notice at the right hand corner of the mulch covered platform is a bar. That is exactly the one I'm have trouble vaulting

PG - 13? It could be slightly boring except for the Parkour in it. Oh well, will still definitely watch it

Movement / Muscle-up to Kong?
« on: March 01, 2015, 03:24:45 PM »
I was watching this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bE2uctKxnAg and around the start (I'm at school so I can't really see exactly when he does) he does a muscle-up to the bar and then puts his feet through, kind of like a monkey or a kong. Two things: Is there a name for this and can anyone tell me how to do this or link me to a video.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Martial Arts?
« on: January 04, 2015, 12:57:08 AM »
Krav Maga is probably one of the best self-defense martial arts I know of. It's designed for practical, real life use.
I do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, and a bit of boxing, but I'm starting to get into Krav Maga and it's probably the best one. I guess I like it because like you said, it's designed to be practical, just like Parkour

Welcome! / Re: gymnastics or capoeira for learning parkour?
« on: December 21, 2014, 03:29:47 PM »
Neither, the two are very different things. The best way for you to learn Parkour is to do Parkour.

If you are looking for techniques you can incorporate into Freerunning, then both are good. Gymnastics can definitely help you get down any flips, twists, bar stuff, and more fast and powerful moves. Capoeria can help with handstands, kicks, and other slow, strength heavy  moves. It's more of what sort of movements you're more comfortable with. Try both and see how you like it.
True that. But if you're talking about Freerunning, then I recommend Gymnastics, but Capoeria is a fun sport and can help you with a few moves. For Parkour, you could try Gymnastics, because you also learn balance and stuff like that, but I recommend just sticking with Parkour, unless you're making a video and hope to incorporate Capoeria into it.

Movement / Backwards jump.
« on: December 20, 2014, 05:27:01 PM »
I remember seeing this in a Parkour video by David Belle, but I couldn't find it. Anyway, so basically he jumped backwards pretty far, and I just want to know how I could go about doing this. Any tutorials?

Movement / Re: A more powerfull kong?
« on: December 20, 2014, 05:18:58 PM »
Can you do a split-step take-off? It's hard to kong a table if you do a punch take-off. Otherwise, everything else I was going to say has already been explained better.

Movement / Re: Help with parkour roll?
« on: December 16, 2014, 01:47:13 AM »
Well, if you say you've done all you can, there may not be much I can help you with, but I'll see what I can do. Anyway, so I used to hurt my shoulder a lot and then I found out that you're not supposed to roll on your shoulder, but rather your upper back, just below your shoulder. I had a bit of trouble at first, but you just have to really push off and try to get your back over your head as much as possible. When I did it, instead of standing and rolling, I lay right on the ground like I was doing a leopard crawl, but with my back off the ground. I'm not sure how helpful this was, but I hope you get better.

Parkour / I think it's called the Dash Drop
« on: December 12, 2014, 11:56:46 PM »
I was watching a Parkour video and I saw someone drop from a platform, but he put his hands on the platform like he was performing a Dash vault. I watched Kyle's tutorial on the Kash vault but they weren't the same thing. Similar, except the first person mentioned dropped straight down. Anyway, so I want to know the proper name for this and if there are any tutorials. Thank you, and if you need more info on this, just ask.

Freerunning / Front flip on ground
« on: December 11, 2014, 12:50:45 AM »
Hey y'all. I'm trying to improve my freerunning vocabulary, and I figured the front flip would be good. I can do one on the trampoline without needing to bounce, and I can do a railflip vault and I can sort of do a handspring if that's a good progression for the front flip. Anyway, so I'm pretty sure I can do a frontflip from the ground, but I'll admit, I'm scared to death everytime I want to do one, even if it's on a soft surface. Anyway, so I desperately need help with this and if you have some ideas but need more information, jut ask

Ooh, this could be very helpful. I'm trying to do a frontflip on the ground, but I might start a whole different thread for that

Yes, that is exactly what I was talking about. Are there any video tutorials?

Movement / Turning on a bar
« on: December 06, 2014, 03:09:37 PM »
Does anyone know any tutorials for swinging to another bar side on? I don't know if there's an actual name for it. An if there are no tutorials, how about your own experience?
