    Parkour

    Hi, I don't really know where to post this, but since this is about physical training, I guess this is the right place.

    I hope all of you know about Parkour, for those who don't go here:
    http://www.parkour.com/
    http://perso.wanadoo.fr/parkour/parkourenglish/

    I'll try to make my questions as simple as possible:

    How does one get to train it? How to train it? Is it legal in all countries?

    I'm kinda clueless, but so far the only things that I've been doing (Seperately) are running and jumping on/off different "Obstacles".

    Is it just that or is there any special method of training in this art?

    Right now I'm trying to assemble a team that wants to do that. But not too many are interested in it, because some think it's dangerous and risky, I for one, think it's really fun.

    Thanks.

    Breakfalling, breakfalling, breakfalling.

    Make sure you can break fall from every damn direction.

    Gymnastics is good too.

    From what I've seen, mixing gymnastic training with running and endurance would probably work. Maybe you can set up a few practice obsticles for specific moves, like some vertical and horizontal bars. Or you can find something equivelant.

    Hmm, gymnastics, means alot of different stuff like plyometrics and flexibility?

    Breakfalls, that would require mats at first, or at least grass.

    There are parkour boards on livejournal, and there's a big one on an EZboard or something like that.

    Parkour is like malaria, it needs a specific carrier organism to spread, in this case instead of Anopheles gambiae, liberal arts students with self woven-woollen beanies seem to be the first host . Must have something to do with not washing one's hair.

    Climb over walls. Balance on rails. Fly. Flying is especially important for parkour.

    How to train it?
    Go outside and start climbing over stuff.

    Is it legal in all countries?
    I assume, as long as you don't break any other laws like trespassing.

    First and foremost, learn how to land. Jumping off your roof is just going to **** you in the ass if you don't know what to do when you land.

    Get on a Parkour board and ASK them.

    If there isn't something near you, then travel to where it is and learn from those guys for a few days. Should be enough to get you going.

    Parkour looks very cool. I believe it can only be done by midgets with wiry strength and a stringbean like physique however.

    heya i do parkour, i recommend just going on youtube n checking out the basic techniques and practicing them dilligently on a ground level for a year or so then progress to higher, more dangerous obstacles if you're prepared for it :) learning how to land and roll is paramount so that should definetly be a priority...

    There is a lot of specialized conditioning for it. Go peruse youtube user UrbanCurrent for some excellent examples. The general idea is to condition the body and find the most efficient ways of negotiating obstacles. This includes an emphasis on landing softly to protect the joints.

    As always, its best to have a well qualified instructor. Try getting in touch with nearby parkour groups (even if they're in a different country if necessary) and ask them for help - it usually has a fairly open and friendly culture with people who are eager to help.
