Parkour du Silence - Silence is control(無聲的Parkour-無聲就是控制)

How often do you really pay attention to the movements you do everyday?

If you haven't heard about this training principle before let me introduce you to this gem: Le Parkour du Silence.

David Belle taught me this concept which came directly from his father who had to use "Parkour du Silence" in real situations during the war in Vietnam.

Parkour du Silence is quite a simple yet powerful principle. Move in absolute silence and with the most control. If you play alone with friends or students here are the rules:

1- Do not talk

2- Make no noise when moving

3- Move very slowly with a lot of control and awereness

Simple and yet very intense. If done properly you will raise your body temperature quite a lot simply by moving slowly with extreme control. One way of doing it (there are several other variations to it) is to work on a parkour route and move very slowly through it whilst being aware of every single movement, as tiny or big as they are, at all times. All this being very silent of course. Because silence means control. Training displacement very slowly without use of any momentum but just pure strength in slow motion develops quality and awereness of movement.

How many movements do you do every day? Since you woke up this morning, stood up, got out of bed, brushed your teeth, walk, put your shoes on, climb up or down the stairs etc...How many movemements have you done and how aware were you while doing them? The truth is we have busy and rushed lives and we are not aware of almost all of our movements and we do most of them automatically without much attention nor intention.

Parkour du Silence is a great tool to help you be aware of a movement you do while you are doing it. Getting into the details and the breakdown of simple motions like walking, but also more advanced like a muscle up for example. If you've ever tried to walk extremely slow you'd notice it actually changes the form of your walk. Without momentum it changes the balance dynamic. Same goes with a muscle up. Using no swing, no momentum, but only the strength of the muscles, you'll build a different form and a lot of quality and control.

Also used as a sort of meditative training tool, moving very slowly and in silence brings you to the here and now, highly increases focus and makes you fully aware of small details in your movement but also your environment. Where you put your foot or hand, on what surfaces and in which position, the rythm of your breathing etc...

Among the thousands of movements you do everyday you will benefit much in spending 10-15 minutes focusing on a few of them and moving without making a sound.

Shhhhh, let's move...

如果你從沒有聽過這種訓練方法,請讓我介紹這顆寶石給你: Le Parkour du Silence

David Belle教懂了我這種概念是直接來自他的父親在越戰時必須用到Parkour du Silence

Parkour du Silence 是一分簡單而強大的原理.絕對安靜地去移動與最大的控制



1 不能說話

2 移動時不能有聲音

3 緩慢移動時要留意周遭環境和控制好每個動作




每一日你會做多小個動作?從你早上起床,站立,離開床舖,刷牙,穿鞋子,上樓梯下樓梯等等 你做了多小動作而在你做的時候你會去留意它?事實是我們擁有一個很繁忙和匆忙的生活而我們是不會去注意所有動作在無意識中自動做了很多的動作

Parkour du Silence是一個很好的工具幫助你去注意你自己的動作。把動作分拆了解每個細節,即使是muscle up這些進階動作也是可以。如果你有試過非常緩慢去走路你會發現這樣走路它形態會被改變。沒有動能那它就會改變了平衡和爆發力,就像muscle up.如果沒有搖動(沒有動力)那就只會用純粹的力量,那你就會建立不同的形態與獲得更多的質量與控制

也用作一種冥想訓練的工具,緩慢地和安靜地移動把你帶到來這裡,Parkour du Silence能大大增加專注,讓你完全留意自己動作上的細節以及周圍環境,你手和腳放的位置,放在什麼的表面上在一個什麼的位置,呼吸的節奏等等
