Default Advice on movements and techniques.

The movement forum isn't to discuss certain techniques but the questions keep coming up, so please post HERE ONLY if you want some help with, and the person to respond should post RELEVANT articles and links to help that individual under his post.
Then if you think more help is required please PM them extra articles. there should be 1 question and one reply, all spam / off topic / arguements will be deleted.

+++ EDITED +++

I have written articles on commonly used Parkour techniques along with remedies to problems frequently encountered when working on technique. This is how I learnt and how I teach, somethings MAY work for you, other may not, what to know the secret? REALLY? You really want to know? *whispers* "Perseverence, determination, and lots of practice". Things take months and years, not an evening or a few days to master!

i still don't see the difference is monkeysa dn kongs.
or infact the point of naming them differently.
if a kong is just a big monkey then that is lame.

Post this in the techniques post in the movement section.

Its hard for people to give advice without knowing what the problem is. Tell us specifically what with the movement you can`t do and maybe we can help you

I run towards the picnic table and as i dive forward my feet seem to clip.



Right after the first seat is where i clip right at the tip of the table. I can actually jump the table and vault it. I just cant kong vault it for some reason.

You think im jumping too late?

try taking off abit further away, maybe 2-3 foot away from the start of the bench, this should give you enough time to get your legs out the way, after this you can experiment with what distance gets the best results in certain scenarios, also do you do split foot take off?

It is also a matter of leverage, in a cat pass, your arms (shoulders) are the point of rotation for the body, your head being one side of your arms, the rest of the body being the other side. If you push your head forward and lower, it will, natually bring your body up, your rear up, and as long as you are tucked, your feet up higher too, of which you should find you don't clip your feet.

This may help too.

All the best, any questions feel free to pm or post again.
