Additional Information

BILINGUAL EDITION (FRENCH DESCRIPTION FOLLOWS) PARKOUR & ART DU DÉPLACEMENT Lessons in practical wisdom Foreword by Ryan C. Hurst, program director, GMB Fitness Postscript by Yann Hnautra, Yamakasi founder 90 lessons from the author of "Parkour and the Art du déplacement: Strength, Dignity, Community". No need for special gear. Just put your shoes on, put this book in your backpack, and you are ready to explore the city, with its many rails and walls and obstacles. Vault, run, do your load of squats and push-ups and traverses, then take a more contemplative break. These ninety very short chapters, with just one clear idea or exercise per chapter, are meant to inspire you and help you deepen your practice. This is not a how-to manual in which you will learn specific movement techniques, but a unique and precious handbook on the philosophical, psychological and spiritual aspects of parkour / ADD / freerunning, that will also hearten people who have a background in dance, martial arts, yoga, CrossFit and so forth. • How can you know if you are ready for a jump? • When should you test and when should you trust? • What are great, natural sources of energy? • How can you find your Growth Zone? • Use constraints to kindle creativity? • How can you "find your voice"? • What are "dynamic tension" and "intrinsic motivation"? • Should you focus more on conditioning or on techniques? ... These and many other subjects are addressed in this groundbreaking book. “A modern day Book of Five Rings.” — Ryan C. Hurst, GMB Fitness "I had a serious spinal injury and I truly believe that without my ADD training and “Body Armor” conditioning, I would be in a wheelchair today. This is why when Vincent asked me to write a few words for his new book, I felt it was a responsibility, as well as an honor, to share my thoughts on what you’re about to read. Being a martial arts instructor and ADD practitioner, Vincent’s “Buddhist” approach is very similar to my personal philosophy and this book will allow you a deeper understanding of the art of the Yamakasi. Not only the physical aspect of parkour and ADD, but its philosophical, emotional and spiritual elements, too - and what Vincent calls the mental posture. Vincent has this rare talent to understand, digest, and put into written word a philosophy that is mostly oral. I enjoyed this book very much, and recommend it to anyone practicing Movement. Read, Learn, Apply." — Fred Evrard, Founder of Kali Majapahit Martial Arts ***** PARKOUR & ART DU DÉPLACEMENT Leçons de sagesse pratique Édition 100% bilingue Préface de Ryan C. Hurst, directeur de Gold Medal Bodies / GMB Fitness Postface de Yann Hnautra, fondateur du groupe Yamakasi 90 leçons par l’auteur de « L’Art du déplacement : Force, dignité, partage ». « Un Traité des cinq roues des temps modernes. » — Ryan C. Hurst, GMB Fitness « J’ai récemment eu une grave blessure à la colonne vertébrale et je crois sincèrement que sans mon entraînement en ADD et les exercices "d’armure corporelle", je me déplacerais aujourd’hui en fauteuil. C’est pourquoi, lorsque Vincent m’a demandé d’écrire quelques mots à propos de son nouveau livre, il m’a semblé que c’était à la fois un honneur et une responsabilité. En tant qu’instructeur d’arts martiaux et pratiquant d’ADD, ma philosophie personnelle ressemble beaucoup à celle de l’approche "bouddhiste" de Vincent. En outre, ce livre vous permettra de comprendre plus en profondeur l’art des Yamakasi. Non seulement l’aspect physique du parkour ou de l’ADD, mais aussi ses composantes philosophiques, émotionnelles et spirituelles – et ce que Vincent nomme parfois la posture mentale. Cet auteur a un rare talent pour comprendre, digérer et mettre à l’écrit une philosophie qui a principalement été transmise oralement. J’ai adoré ce livre et le recommande à toute personne qui s’intéresse au mouvement. Lisez, apprenez, et mettez en application. » — Fred Evrard, fondateur de Kali Majapahit
