The Dash Vault is a vault used in Parkour and Free running in which a practitioner jumps over an obstacle feet first then leads the body away from the object with the hands. This vault is considered a more difficult vault to perform because of its difficulty to transfer momentum.

Technique[edit | edit source]

  1. Run up to the obstacle.
  2. Jump over the obstacle as if your glutes were to land on it.
  3. Place the hands down and push yourself away from the obstacle..

Acceptance in Parkour)you don't need acceptance in parkour[edit | edit source]

The dash vault is often debated for its usefulness in Parkour. David Belle himself has commented negatively about the vault's ability to perform in Parkour. However, some traceurs report positive applications for the dash vault, as it can be used to reduce speed and drop heights with relative comfort. The dash vault is also quite useful when a traceur has too much momentum and is not in a good position to perform another vault. it doesn't have to be useful, parkour is about fun not acceptance so do what you think is fun and you like parkour is like a new world full of possibility so make new moves try new combinations and when you get hurt pretty bad take the proper time to heal if you read above this i shared a time were i stopped doing parkour to heal but im back doing it and most importantly have fun and do what you fell comfortable with don't over step to look cool it is not worth you safety if you want just comment if you want me to do other vaults and moves
