Black Dragon Parkour Wiki

The Kong Vault is a vault used in Parkour & Free Running which involves jumping and planting both hands side-by-side on an obstacle and bringing both legs in-between, shortly after pushing off with the hands. When the hands are placed on the object before the feet leave the ground, it is known as a monkey vault. A kong with a dive either over an object or a long distance is called a Diving Kong
