1 HANDED KONG VAULT!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
« on: August 03, 2009, 11:49:45 PM »
Ok, so I've been doing parkour for a while and I'm currently getting better at free running. Having my favorite vault being a kong vault (because of the feeling of being animalistic!) I wanted to develop my own variation. I could do all the variations that already exist (kash, diving kong, double kong) and tried to make my own thing, something crazy. I kinda failed at that but I ended up doing a 1 handed kong vault. It kind of looks like a 1 hand that you go straight forward with. If anyone wants me to post a video link I will.

So it would be a speed vault then, right?

Right, my speed vaults are rather straight-tuck, as in "one handed kong" they are still sped vaults though.

What about backwards kong vaults? Like, you rewound a tape of someone doing a kong vault type of thing. Those are pretty hard.

There are times when you want to break down and rage at the heavens. Don't. Stay calm, and let the emotions flood in, accept them and then rise above them. Never dwell. Don't fear or worry. Anything worth thinking about is worth talking about. And... Good luck.

lol you just reminded me of Chris from Family Guy, "Why don't you invent the Frisbee? That's an awesome Toy." "Chris, that has already been invented" "Then how come I've never heard of it!?"

The guy said that he wanted to make up an original variation... so asking him to make one that you gave a specific example to is simply... silly lol

One handed kong = failed kong vault, or at least thats what I tell my brother whenever he lifts his right hand off.

Not much of a challange, they're easier than regular kongs.

Try double kongs, or kong to kong instead.

I was suggesting he should try them. Not make up a new move that I just said.  ::) [WTF]

Hmm, one-handed straddle vault? That would be pretty hard. One-handed pop vault? One-handed safety vault? One-handed dash vault? One-handed underbar? The possibilities are endless.

One-handed front flip?
