you can know all about back flips, tumbles, rolls, swinging legs around the top of something, running up one wall and bouncing off another, and how to
land and absorb the shock all you want.
but something you will never be able to know with 100% certainty is what that wall you are gonna bounce off of will take, or that pipe you gonna use
to swing with so you clear that gully , trench fire, car or what have you have will hold. or if there's some slick gooie stuff on it, that gonna
cause to slip and fall
things might take slow even pressure better than fast sudden impact loads, so i might be able to stand on that ac unit if i do it slowly, but if i hit
with a 150lb load moving at lets say 5miles a hour, it will probably crumble and then you can be in a world of hurt if it collapses in on its self or
it throws you off the next move your gonna try to make.
i was watching one of those dumbest video shows the other day , and they showed a guy gonna parkour over the top of a car,while his buddy was backing
it up, and slide down the back window, well yea he made it over the trunk, but when he hit the window with his butt, it busted and he all most fell
down behind the car, itf his buddy hadn't of stopped he'd be a spot on the road. my point is most car windows will take people full weight if they
just apply it evenly, but he hit it moving fast and it busted, throwing all his well laid plans to jump over it all to sh@@
you can bet all the parkour's have checked their running ground. those that don't usually are the ones you see get hurt. and in a buggin out
situation, you don't have time to check and see if it's gonna hold ya.
