Présentation de l'éditeur

The Parkour and Freerunning Handbook is a comprehensive, fully illustrated, four-color guide to parkour and free-running techniques, philosophy, and culture from Dan Edwardes of Parkour Generations, Britain’s leading free-running association. An It Books paperback original, this essential handbook offers a jump-by-jump guide to parkour, aimed at building the confidence of the novice to become a confident and inventive free-runner. The first book of its kind, The Parkour and Freerunning Handbook is the only guide the fledgling traceur will ever need to get jumping.

Quatrième de couverture

Join the movement

Combining the core elements of running, jumping, and climbing with the discipline of the martial artist, the grace of the gymnast, and the virtuosity of the skateboarder, parkour—or freerunning—is more than simply an elegant noncompetitive sport. It's an art form, a philosophy promoting fitness, imagination, community spirit, and ethical, healthy living.

The Parkour and FreeRunning Handbook is your guide to becoming part of this urban revolution. With standout features on fitness and training, global cityscapes and using the space of the urban environment, and tips on how to avoid mistakes and injuries, this is more than just a user's manual. It explores the techniques, culture, clothes, and community of freerunning, showing just what it takes to hit those handstands, kong vaults, and wall hops. This essential handbook is the only guide the fledgling traceur will ever need to get jumping!

Ce livre explique bien les différentes dimensions du Free Running, les risques, la préparation physique et l'état d'esprit. Très utile pour ceux qui débutent comme moi. Les mouvements de base sont bien expliqués à l'aide de dessins. Le livre est généraliste et donne une vue d'ensemble, sans entrer dans tous les détails et toute la complexité du Free Run.

HASH(0x92517198) étoiles sur 5 Gave me an even greater appreciation for those who practice parkour... 17 juillet 2010
Par Thomas Duff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
No, I'm not planning on taking up a new activity that would likely land me in the hospital within a week (if not sooner). But I *do* find the videos of parkour fascinating. When I saw the book The Parkour and Freerunning Handbook by Dan Edwardes show up at my local library, I figured it was worth a quick read just to find out more about the sport. This is the perfect book for someone curious about parkour and how practitioners are able to leap and dive over obstacles with ease. And if you were actually interested in getting started, there's enough information here to learn the basics while getting a solid grounding in how to keep from killing yourself in the process.

I think what surprised me most is that its really more of a philosophy and life attitude, akin to something you might find within the martial arts. It combines play, lifestyle, discipline, and methodology. Those who are serious about parkour start to view it as the foundation of all movement, the ability to flow with the environment and use the body to overcome barriers that normally block our paths. I can easily see how it could become the basis of an entire fitness regimen, as it combines strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular activities into a single sport. That's probably why the videos you see of parkour always seem to have people who look incredibly fit and ripped.

The Parkour and Freerunning Handbook was a quick read for what I was looking to get out of it, and it will change the way I view parkour videos from here on out. The "wow" factor will remain, but it will also be joined by a solid appreciation of what it takes to get to that level.

HASH(0x925171ec) étoiles sur 5 Beginner's guide to Parkour 12 mars 2010
Par Michael A. Duvernois - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is from the Parkour Generations folks who have a number of videos and educational programs online. They've taught everyone from school children to Hollywood stuntmen and stuntwomen. The book is thin, but has good photographs and a solid step-by-step technique building program. The core stance on the book is practice, practice, and practice with an eye towards grace and silent, smooth execution of technique. This could be a good motivational book for someone new to Parkour or freerunning, but it's hard to imagine pushing too far into this without good instructors as well.

HASH(0x9251760c) étoiles sur 5 Great starting leap 2 août 2010
Par Chris Barrett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Anyone having an interest in Parkour should find this book beneficial. As other reviewers note, the bulk of this book talks about the sport of Parkour and how to prepare, practice and progress in the skill. The back of this book contains basic moves with step by step pictures and descriptions. Perhaps the best piece of advice gained from this book is that Parkour is not a strict set of moves but rather a chance to be creative and find the best way for "you" to move through space. Learn the basics to protect yourself from injury and then enjoy the journey expanding your abilities from point A to point B. This book also makes a great conversation piece if left on the coffee table.

HASH(0x925179d8) étoiles sur 5 No book can really teach parkour 13 août 2011
Par K. Dantzler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Really, how could it? But, this book is filled with pictures and advice, both of which turn out to be useful and interesting. The practice exercises were the most helpful as they give you little tips of things to try to build up to the bigger stunts. There's plenty of helpful tips and trick and simple things like hand placement that makes some vaults easier. All in all, there's maybe 2 pages of information that's truly useful, the rest is just terminology and no brainers. But that's not the fault I don't think of the authors, it's a new sport, with no real rules, how can you really write an effective handbook? My advice, get the book if you like, its inexpensive and a motivational read, then get outside and run.
