Drops are defined roughly by your level of conditioning.  But in general you should never take a drop greater than the height of your body.  Some argue that even this is too much.

Any information or advice given is not to be interpreted as diagnosis, or statements of causality, conditions should be evaluated by a licensed practitioner of Chiropractic or Medical Doctor IN PERSON.  Therefore treatment recommendation should be considered similarly and bears no consequence to me.

That didn't really answer my question, in any case I think people were taking drops over my height before Parkour was ever founded. I roll if the drop in question is over my height and I don't think drops of 10ft or higher should ever be done outside of an emergency. Not that I can accurately judge 10ft on eyesight alone.
As long as its about movement, there is no right or wrong answers to what Parkour is.

A drop is defined as:

"To fall vertically"

It's a verb.

Thus, the statement that you should not take a drop greater than the height of your body means that for you, don't drop greater than own height.  A general rule of thumb.


Clear now?

It has nothing to do with rolling or not.  It is falling vertically--that's all.

you don't move your neck/back/etc etc and lay still until ambulance comes :)

Thanks guys. It helped... I broke my neck, but luckily didn't damage any nerves. (probably because I laid still, thanks Ken.)

I'm now in a full-body cast at the hospital..well, kinda. My right arm is free, so that's how I'm typing this.

You guys make me feel so reckless, I'm 6' something or other" and the highest drop I've taken is about 10' 4". Sad part is that ended a lot better than when I tried to do a front flip off of the back of a sedan without practicing for a couple of years. Felt dumb after that one...

depending on how deep and what you nailed it on, (from my experience) i'd say about 3 weeks to fully heal,    you'll feel better after about a week or two and then you'll train and you'll regret it.   ;P

Unless you are my age, then change "weeks" to "months". :)

Never push through pain unless under the guidance of a professional in medicine/physical therapy/chiro.

You'll soon be there if you keep pushing through pain on your own.....

:) Hi everyone! Dropping without rolling is not good. To much pressure is focus on lower part of the leg. If you cant bend your knees the tension will be distributed to the upper body which sometimes cause injury. So be careful guys! :)
