How to Do Parkour Wall Runs & Tic Tacs

Learn how to do wall runs and tic tacs in this Howcast parkour video with expert Ann Kaczka.


My name is Ann Kaczka, I've been practicing Parkour since 2007. My first day training was with David Belle at the New Yorker festival. And since then I've trained solo in Thailand, climbing trees on the streets of London and Paris. And now I'm back in New York City. And today I'm here to talk to you about Parkour.
So, what is a wall run? Pretty much you're going to be running at the wall, and kicking up in order to get up and over the wall. With a wall run, obviously, you're using it not to get over a wall that you can easily vault over. So, it's pretty much going to be above chest height.
A tic tac, you're going to run at the wall and kick off of it in order to redirect to another spot, whether it's over a rail or over another wall.
Progressions in the tic tac, you can just start small. Kick off the wall, redirect your motion and just see generally if you put a little bit more power and energy into it, where could you go?
