Landing

Landing is a critical part of Parkour, it pertains to any time you come down from an object or higher place. "Landing" as a verb specifically refers to the way that shock and impact are absorbed to try to minimize strain on joints such as the knees and ankles. Some landings will include a roll, but sometimes this is not necessary, and a landing can just be a compression of the knees, if necessary one can slap the ground, although for most people this will put them in a position to have too much pressure put on the lower back. Landing falls under the original French term Saut de Fond, which means dropping.
