The Safety Vault is a type of vault used in parkour and freerunning. Often recommended as the first vault to learn, it is considered one of the easiest vaults, and many other vaults are variations of it. It also does not require any commitment (it is one of the few vaults than can be performed slowly), it is not as intimidating to perform as more advanced vaults, and it can be used when momentum has been lost.
Technique[edit | edit source]
