Default Re: front/back flips, Needed to be a good traceur?

So in answer to the question.... Definately not because back/front flips are not parkour! *duhh*

Eating isnt "Parkour" and yet that helps you.

I think Having a few flips under your belt can benefit Parkour alot, even having a baisic understanding on how flips work can help you rotate when you fall and get on your feet again etc etc etc

Yes but what im saying is Front Flips and back flips are not Parkour!
I mean im more of a tricker than a traceur and even i know tricking isnt parkour as it isnt fluent or efficient.

tricking can be beneficial in parkour training though

I wish tricking came to me. Got backtucks on grass for a whole day, then lost them the day after because of an unexplainable fear, even though I'd done them. :/

Lol that happens to a lot of people Cragz my mate Jamie did the exact same thing but he had his mum to blame :P
All im saying is tricking isnt parkour but yes it can be benifitial like Bloo said...
But is that not just rendered as freerunning? ^o)

Losing tricks is just a part of tricking. Usually though, when you get them back, you keep them.

Aye I hope so. I lost it the day after I learned it (first trick I can do really) now that I think about it, I learned them in the gym then went home and tricked on the grass, did loads, but bailed one. Maybe the one I bailed, in the middle of all the fine ones, was why Im put off.

eh?

Not effciant perhaps ( don't bother debating that on the internets)

but not fluent, sir have you been smoking some form of drug that inhibits logical thought?

Flips are a circular / rotational movement so they look super fluid!
