Dash Vault: A simple and effective vault that can easily be used as the first vault in over coming two close obstacle fluidly. The movement in this vault is almost like doing a hurdle but allowing both feet to pass over the object first in a sitting position remaining very close to it with your butt (not touching it), and as you pass over it your hands will push off and help reset your feet down.


Step 1) Run up to the object with enough speed varying based on the size of your object.

Step 2) Using a split step approach kick your front leg while pushing off of your back leg. Now remember to lean back as you jump up (your knees can not come up if your chest is forward and your feet will clip the front edge)

Step 3) As you move up and over the object remember that you do not want to go up and come down on to it. You want to dash slightly across the top of it moving past the object but remaining close enough that you are not putting down force on your wrists when it comes time to place your hands down.

Step 4) As you move past the object push with your hands (fingers pointing out and hands down by your hips) away from the object resetting your your chest back to a running split step position.

Please keep in mind there are many paths that you can take to reach the same destination. In these parkour and freerunning tutorials I will be breaking down the movement the way I know how. These are not the flashiest videos, and I do a lot of talking, but please take the time to listen and I am sure you will learn a lot.
