This branch of study focuses particularly on the art of falling (also known as Parkour Ukemi).
It covers fundamental falling techniques so that you can react to the most common falling scenarios in your sport, discipline, or life in general. It promotes faster progression towards your movement goals, decreases fear, mitigates your risk of injury, lightens the vibe during training, and ensures better results for coaches and businesses involved in sport or movement arts.
You will learn a unifying theory of falling continuums and how to engrain them in your natural reactions in order to respond better in any falling scenario. Learn techniques like one leg back rolls, break falls, ukemi gallop, twisting au, assisted dive rolls, the concept of ground awareness, and much more. Additionally, you’ll integrate these techniques into drills and challenges that will simulate real falling scenarios.
We don’t have any falling classes on the schedule just yet. However, many of these techniques are already weaved into our parkour curriculum.
If you’re interested in putting in particular focus on falling, there are two options at the moment:
1. Art of Falling private lessons with Amos Rendao (creator of this branch of study).
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire and set up a lesson that fits your schedule.
2. Use the Art of Falling online course to add to your parkour training and homework outside of classes. This is the exact content you would learn in private lessons for a fraction of the price (it would take about 7 to 20 hours of private lessons to cover everything included in this course).
