View Full Version : Move like Altair!

Greetings, everyone. First let me say that I've been reading this forum and keeping my eyes on this game for a long time now, and I can say honestly that this is the most exciting release I've seen in a long, long time.

Probably the most exciting part of AC for me is that most of Altair's movements are based on "parkour" and "freerunning". You may have heard that all of his movements are realistically within the realm of human achievement, and as a practitioner of parkour, I can tell you firstly that (of what I have seen so far) they certainly are and secondly, that these movements are surprisingly natural, and nearly anyone can learn them!

I don?t claim to be an expert in the area, but parkour has brought so much to my life, that I?d like to try to share what I do know with you. Also, I noticed that there are a few other tracuers who post here, so don?t be shy about correcting me / throwing your weight in on this post / showing your support for parkour!

Parkour was founded by David Belle and Sebastian Foucan, who discovered the art simply through normal, natural playing in their neighborhood as children. Both were inspired by David?s father, Raymod Belle, and by the work of George Herbert, who is the father of the modern obstacle course and outdoor training. Parkour is the art and practice of overcoming obstacles, usually in an urban setting. Those who practice parkour are called tracuers.

Most likely, you?ve done what is termed ?parkour? many times in your life. If you are moving efficiently and overcoming obstacles, you are performing parkour. Children and adolescent males in particular are often seen jumping off of objects, trying to climb things, and generally experimenting with their physical environment. As adults, we tend to ?clam up? and ?act right?; and furthermore, it only takes a few painful falls for most people to lose this sense of experimentation and wonder.

Parkour seeks to regain that quality. By refining and practicing the movements, we can build our confidence and learn new ways to maneuver through the environment. We can see the world in a new light and familiarize ourselves with ways of movement that come from an older time.

But that?s enough talk from someone who shouldn?t properly be rambling on too long, let?s see some videos!

"Power is nothing without control (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1V-yaGESJ4) - this is a popular video from a tracuer named ?Blane?. Gives you a basic idea of what parkour is all about.

"iPK" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LJaxehQMhQ) - this is an impressive video that shows off some techniques that best resemble what Altair might be doing in AC. They also show some non-traditional (i.e. slow) moves that would better be classified as buildering than strictly parkour.

"Texas Parkour summer training" (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1658349825525046689&hl=en) - great compilation that really lets you see what kinds of movements are possible in parkour. Also ends with some bails - everybody falls sometimes, even Altair!

"Frosti says goodbye to Chicago" (http://kwiprod.us/goodbye.mov) - One of my favorite videos, this gives you a good look at some serious agility and technique. You can see that Frosti is able to move quickly through seemingly impassable urban terrain, I like the clip in the scaffolding particularly.

"B13 escape scene (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8970008800328106389&q=B13&hl=en) - Finally, the master at work. This is a clip from the movie ?B13?, starring the founder of parkour, David Belle. This clip has a few action movie-type quirks, but the entire scene is shot without the aid of wires or computer enhancement.

So hopefully, you are as juiced about giving this a shot as I was when I first got into parkour (what else are you gonna do until release?). Here?s where to get started:

Parkour.net (http://parkour.net/index.php?lang=en), Americanparkour.com (http://www.americanparkour.com/), and Urbanfreeflow.com (http://www.urbanfreeflow.com/) all have excellent tutorial articles and videos, but first I would suggest reading this post (http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php/topic,415.0.html) from "Asa" on americanparkour.com

He talks about an important issue; that parkour is not about the individual movements, but about the intent behind them and the mindset that you practice in. Like a martial art, parkour is as much a cultivation of the mind as it is of the body.

And that brings me to my last point - if you choose to try this out, (as I hope you will) be aware that most people are not fit enough to perform most of the moves you saw in the videos above. Proper conditioning and strength training should play a big role in your training schedule early on, or your joints and bones will pay the price later on. However, with proper control and conditioning, you?ll find parkour very, very rewarding.

If I can help you out or answer any of your questions, please PM me or post a reply and I?m sure myself or any other tracuer can point you in the right direction. I wish you the best of luck and happy training!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Good post. I couldn't find anything I felt was incorrect. I started doing this last year and have been working quite hard on it. Here's a link (http://www.learnparkour.com/new/parkour_tutorials.php?l=en)to one of the places I used to get started. Not the best and your links are more helpful but i've for some reason always loved that site. Personally I think I do free running more than parkour because I enjoy the flashy flip part of it. I know that kind of kills my traceur title because I don't have the discipline to do only whats necessary to get from point A to point B as fast as possible. But I guess I shouldn't be rambling on either! Well I just threw in my two cents hope you enjoyed.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I was hoping someone would ask this. She's been calling it "le Parkour or 'Freerunning'".

She's pronouncing le parkour the way it really should be in the original french, so its a bit hard to understand. In America we just pronounce it 'park', like you would a car, and 'or' as in, either this or that.

Freerunning could be considered an off-shoot of parkour. It focuses on flashy and daring movements, rather than efficient ones. Freerunners often use flips, handsprings, wallspins, wallflips, and other fun but inefficient movements. Because it shares some movemens with parkour and it is performed in the same environment, the two are often confused.

Altair's movements are purely parkour; intended to get form point A to point B as quickly as possible, and so calling them freerunning would really be a misnomer.

What if they have mixed freerunning and Parkour, and taken some bits from each, and mashed them together for Altair's own style? I mean, people probably want to do the flashy stuff too, although I am more interested in parkour type movement. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Wow. I am actually amazed at how correct all this info is, on the differences between parkour and freerunning e.t.c... I'm guessing that Altair would only do parkour, but I guess some tricks mixed in their would be pretty cool.

Couplea things... David Belle developed parkour without Sebastian. Sebastian came later and completely mis represented parkour in Jump London, by saying "This is parkour" then doing flips and roof jumps all over the place. Most parkour is done on the ground, but the higher you go, the less likely people will be to want to follow you. Freerunning is an offshoot of parkour similiar to "Yamakasi", the french art of motion. Parkour is not so much an art, but more of a discipline. The founding idea of parkour is "To be strong, to be useful".

The idea came to George Hebert when he met some aboriginees who had amazingly flexible and powerful bodies, and had became like that using nothing but their environment. Thus he decided to train those in the army that he could in the "methode naturelle". This involved swimming, climbing, balancing, walking quadrupedally (on all fours), throwing, jumping and defence. He would set up obstacle courses and get the soldiers to run around them as fast as possible, or sometimes without touching the ground.

Le Parkour came from this, and sees the whole world as one big obstacle course to be conquered in as many ways as possible.

Tricking, flips e.t.c can be great supplements to parkour training, but it must be remembered that they are not part of parkour. Anyone thinking of taking up parkour should look into the possibility of taking up rock climbing, as it is great for good all round strength, swimming, stamina running (cross country) and learning a martial art (such as Ju-Jitsu or Krav Maga).

The freerunning/parkour community is extremely friendly and everyone will help everyone. If you want more info, e-mail me at rapide-comme-le-vent@hotmail.co.uk, and maybe I could jam with you some time (if you live in the U.K, prefferably Essex or Suffolk). alternately, visit www.urbanfreeflow.co.uk, (http://www.urbanfreeflow.co.uk,) and check out the funadamentals. Remember, keep it safe, condition your legs so you can handle drops, and dont do big drops unless absolutely necessary, or you will destroy your knees. The professionals like David Belle have spent years conditioning their legs so they can do these drops, do not attempt to copy them. Also, 99% of parkour is done at ground level. keep off of roofs.

Now here's something you need to keep in mind:
1.Avoid falling into Hang/Catleap position on low ground like in the first movie he did somethimes.
2.Dont bend your legs over 90 Degrees.It will f*ck up your Muscles.
3.When jumping/falling from a distance of more than 2 meters hihg...Commit a roll http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
4.Dont stop, after a vault or anything.
5.Pratice , practise , practise!
6.If u dont sucseed once Try and try ugen...And try to outcome fears, Dont over rate yourself.
7.Always do a warmup if possible for 30mins-1hour.
8.Flips and stuff like that is not a part of PK..But used in videos and just cool to knowhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
9.Avoid using Elbows and knees to climp up...



This is all i got to say for now.

personally, I think that 30 mins to an hour for warm up is excessive. At PK10 there was only a 15 minute warm, but hell was it hard! I normally just climb trees and do some light vaults as a warm up. Just don't do any drops or anything very big before your warmed up, and it should be o.k. A light jog is a good way to increase your core body temperature, which is the main aim of the warm up. Dont bother stretching btw, it doesnt do much. But do stretch when warming down, and make sure you warm down otherwise you will hurt in the morning. If you want to make sure you dont hurt, have a cold or ice bath shortly after the end of trianing.

Oh, apart from that, the guy above is pretty damn knowledgeable.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

It might have ben a Promo...But...Your rolls are wrong...
They Shouldent be Straight over your spine...
Your roll has to start from the shoulder and end @ your Hip...

o.k, pretty sweet. your first reverse, one arm was a bit flaily. rolls, yeah, fix them. But I fell in love with your second reverse, the one in the corner of those bars. so original. Your last roll was nice, and the camera work for the last vault was sweet.

Your pretty damn good. Better than me, i'd say. work on kong distance and you'll be a force to contend with.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I thought my rolls were fine http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif well then again, before I broke my leg, they were much better, I will keep working on em. reverse vaults are my fav's, I recently started doing them one handed http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif but apparrently I lost some of my old skill.

...yeah, looking back, my rolls are MUCH slower...

Quite surreal to see my video being posted in this forum. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm looking forward to playing this game and seeing just how well they researched Parkour and implemented it into the game.

FlediX - landing and bending your knees more than 90 degrees is not bad for the muscles, it's bad for the joints. Also,

Were you referring to my video here? If so, what was wrong about my arm jumps low to the ground? Why should they be avoided? Practicing these movements close the ground is VITAL before you think of trying them at height, telling people to avoid this is bad advice.

hehehe... hey Blane. You rock. Oh, yeah, anyway... swiftslasher, I meant the way you rolled down your spine, not diogonally, on the first roll, or at least thats what they looked like.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
