Parkour Ukemi Roll Tutorial
Skill in parkour is not just marked by the ability to perform cool movements, but also by the ability to smoothly and effectively carry your momentum in and out of those movements and into other movements.
This week in our beginners class we covered rolls, a very important technique when it comes to keeping ‘flow’ especially when the path you’re taking requires constant (or significant) changes in height. Superficially rolls seem simple, but truly mastering a roll actually requires many layers of sophistication in technique.
I thought it would be good to once again share this excellent roll tutorial series by Amos Rendao of Apex Movement. The series comes thick with light-hearted humor and is extremely informative; highly recommended for beginners. Check it out!
