[APK-News]The Forgotten Movements Vol. 1 - Hurdling

rssIcon.gif The Forgotten Movements Vol. 1 - Hurdling

Kong Vault. Precision. Cat Leap. The essentials, the bread and butter, of most traceurs’ movement repertoire. There are certain movements that get the most practice, that get the most attention, and that get the most thought. This is understandable because they can be used in so many different situations without changing the basic technique all that much. But what about other situations, what about other movements? Surely there are other, lesser known ways of moving through the environment? Of course. And I’m going to highlight a few that I feel don’t get the respect they deserve.


Let me set the scene for you. You’re at the starting line of a running track, alongside seven other individuals. Ahead of you, ten obstacles stand in your way, each consisting of a thin plastic board attached to two metal pipes, forming what is essentially a mini floating wall. You take your mark, get set, and sprint out of the starting gate as fast as you can. But what about those obstacles? Are you going to vault them? How, they’re too flimsy to put a hand on, and you’re body can’t swing out beyond the lines that border your running lane. So what do you do hotshot? What do you do? Why, hurdle of course!
