Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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, Britains 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.

Synopsis:

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!
