I was really hoping I didnt see a roof drop but the video just had the smell of it.

Keep practicing your form and technique. It seems you have some decent upper body balance, use it wisely.

Your upper body is very good, now train your lower body and your parkour will be more balanced.

Two things.

The hell was with those tic tacs?!

And work on your rolls. You practically hit your head on the roof jump, and you're really rolling on your spine on the dive.

Keep it up bro.

Good beginning stuff. Your legs are pretty wild when you vault over the table and tac off that tree, and your drop looked like it crumpled you. Just keep training, I don't know if the legs thing is style or just whackyness. Try to get control over it if it's not on purpose

thx for the help
just so u know, most of the stuff on the video, i tried for first time
yea i never really jumped off of anything over 10ft till relatively recently
as for the tree flailing of the legs, that was on purpose, but the getting over the tables, i just tried not hitting the table with my legs so they probly looked kinda funny
one of u said i practically rolled on my spine on the dives, wat am i supposed to do when diving? like wats the proper way to roll?

The proper way is to roll from one of your shoulders to the opposite hip. Just like any other PK roll. When you dive, place your hands to one side of your body (the opposite side from the shoulder you roll on). When you do this it creates the diagonal, so instead of going arms--head--back--ass--feet, you go arms--shoulder--hip--feet. It even sounds more pleasant that way haha. hope I helped!

To learn a proper roll, look up Ozzi's Roll tutorial on youtube.

in martial arts rolls you usually stop on the ground or roll up into a fighting stance. however, due to my karate instruction as a kid, translating rolls into the pk run out was pretty easy. so a martial arts class wont hurt.
I like to touch different kinds of surface textures.
Parkour lets me do that without feeling weird.

FLAILING LEGS EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!  :o

jk....I read that you did that on purpose, but I would suggest not.  It looks more like not having control rather than a planned movement.

And the jump at 1:24...WAY too large.

My suggestions would be to work on your rolls (you're going on your spine right now = not good); like the other poster said, look up Ozzi's roll tutorial.  Also you can work on some basic vaults and work on control most of all.  Speed will come later, once you've mastered the technique.  Take it slow.

Good luck and train safe!

The flailing legs caught my attention and I watched the video like 50 times. But you should control theose legs boy...lol. Good work. Train on smaller things. You are doing good for your first.

Nice upperbody. I especially liked the backwards spring of the rail.

One thing though, It would look better if you did good form running up to an obstacle
and then good form running away. You didnt do that 100% of the way.

Just a tip for your next vid

props tho!

You're clearly well on your way in terms of tackling upper body strength, conditioning, and balance.  That is super awesome and will help you on climbups and such.  I was incredibly impressed, actually, with your skill in this area.  It's clear that you understand the need for conditioning and not just "getting moves down and jumping over stuff."  However, as someone else said, be sure to not neglect your lower body!  Condition your legs the way you are conditioning your upper body and you'll see a big improvement in jumps, landings, vaults, etc.

Please be cautious with the big drops and jumps.  If you've just started doing 10 feet, as you say, then please stop now.  The sooner you do, the less damage to your joints.  Slow progression (slower than you think) is key.  Your joints will not complain like your muscles do.  Joints don't start complaining until heavy damage has already taken place.  And joints take longer to recover from stress than muscles do.  In other words, you may think you're "fine" or "can handle it" until it's too late and your body tells you otherwise.

The summary:

Muscles:  get sore when worked hard, heal faster, and stop hurting when they've recovered significantly

Joints:
don't usually get sore when under stress (at first...), heal much slower, and either never hurt in the first place so you don't know when they've recovered enough, or B) there's significant accumulative damage, at which point they may hurt after every workout, or eventually all the time.


Strong muscles are your first defense to protect your joints, so strengthening your lower body will aid tremendously in protecting your knees, ankles, etc.



I'm saying all this because you have some awesome potential and I want to see you succeed and be doing this for a long time.
