Have you ever tried parkour in Minecraft? If not, you’re missing out on an exhilarating experience that will put your skills to the test.

This article will guide you through everything you need to know about parkour in Minecraft – from how to prepare and start, to improving your skills and mastering advanced techniques.

Whether you’re a beginner or looking to level up your game, we’ve got you covered with tips and tricks for successful Minecraft parkour. Let’s jump right in!

What is Parkour in Minecraft?

Parkour in Minecraft is a system of running, jumping, and maneuvering through various two and three-dimensional landscapes. While it was initially a custom map in which players completed obstacle courses of varying difficulty solely for the sake of enjoying the challenge, this skill eventually became a necessary part of the game due to the many updates that required players to jump over obstacles. Nonetheless, custom parkour maps remain a popular mode of playing the game.

How to Prepare for Parkour in Minecraft?

There are a few ways in which you can prepare for parkour in Minecraft. Start by walking around the Minecraft world and familiarizing yourself with the space and terrain. Explore the terrain and potential parkour challenges to gauge your jumping abilities. Once you have done this, practice jumping from block to block to increase your skill level. This will condition and sharpen your sense of distance and timing that is necessary in parkour. Finally plan out a parkour path before starting to run.

Choose the Right Map

The following maps are the best Minecraft parkour maps according to the popular parkour server MAPCRAFT on White has chosen the most popular/-the top of each category: -a semi-popular map in the easy category, -a semi-popular map in the medium category, -a map in the hard category.

Fallen Kanade – Easy. One of Fallen’s friends, Kanade, made these maps and this one is for her birthday.

UHC Parkour – Medium. Making it across this parkour course allows you to take on the minecraft ultra-hardcore mode.

Classical Parkour – Hard. 49 levels of difficulty and 49 bonus levels that increase in their completeness and have a different theme.

Tower Parkour 3 says that this tower parkour map is so hard it will make you cry. So if you want a challenge, check it out.

As you can see above, White is able to make his way through medium difficulty parkour maps but struggles with the ultra-hard ones. Choose a map that matches your skill level. Perform well in your chosen maps before you move up, the easiest of which will still give some challenge to new parkour players.

Once you’ve found the map that suits you, keep an eye on recommendations from the community. Along with websites with the tag #minecraftparkour such as r/Minecraft Maps on reddit, 21 Rolls on youtube, or asking on the Minigame Network Twitch account, there are also maps provided by whitelisted parkour servers. These handle the map selection for you, which you can see on their schedule.

Gather the Necessary Items

The basic item needed to do parkour in Minecraft is leather fire resistance armor with an elytra equipped. To perform parkour moves one needs to know basic Minecraft survival techniques to get to the locations where Minecraft parkour is taking place. It is essential that players master the techniques of fire resistance armor and the elytra before trying to deploy these for parkour.

Another important item is food. The most common food used is rotten flesh, as it has an 80% chance to provide a hunger point. However, at the beginning of a difficult parkour map it is a good idea to stock up in case the player must repeat a section multiple times.

If a map requires ladder parkour or the use of ladders as a means to progress, ladders may be needed. Be sure to have enough in case of failure. Ender pearls are important for starting a map if it calls for a leap with them. Most maps will have an intended path but if you need to practice leaping from one platform to another or need to hit a switch on the other side of a chasm, ender pearls can drastically reduce the difficulty of such tasks.

Potion of slow falling or Feather falling enchant are among the items that players use depending on the parkour situation. A potion of slow falling, or a leather fire resistant armor with fire resistance, is advised for any map set in the nether or a similar biome with high cliffs.

Familiarize Yourself with the Controls

Videogames work on controls, or ‘keybinds’, which are features that the videogame developer uses to enable players to interact with the game itself. Remember these parkour controls. Running and jumping in Minecraft is significantly improved with some keyboard mapping. The version of mc.The parkour staff server on which players participate all have the same vanilla MC controls. However, the parkour match server (for challenging friends) has caveats in custom maps in some minigame modes.

How to Start Parkour in Minecraft?

To start parkour in Minecraft, install the game on a computer or console and start a fresh world. From there, choose a parkour course to practice from the pre-made or custom-built courses. Observe the environment and obstacles to plan your routes, controls, timings, and positions. Begin jumping, sprinting, and controlling movement by performing simple jumps. Continue practicing until movements become automatic. Finish by practicing advanced jumps like sprint projected spins and niche jumps like ice slab jumps.

Along with this basic advice, the Varuna resource pack also recommends practicing in multiple parkour environments to expand and solidify your fundamentals.

Following this theoretical and experimental approach will train your in-game skills as a parkour performer. The emphasis here is on applying and training practical skills in complex environments. Through repetition and practice, you will build your skills until you can perform confidently and fluidly on a wide variety of parkour challenges. Keep in mind that parkour is a multifaceted discipline. While jumps and landings are important, developing controlled use of jumps, timing, position, vision and balance are just as important fundamentals.

Find the Starting Point

The core requirements for how to parkour in Minecraft involve locating a suitable starting point that is clearly defined and easy to access from all sides. It should have sufficient length, with periodic blocks that are elevated from the ground, such as water features, tree branches, fences, and such as transitions.

There should be natural landmarks or shadows, and strong building edges to create borders that keep players within the parkour area, so they do not accidentally stray into different sections. If water or ice play a part, there should be no strong currents or variables. Slime or honey should not be used as they are too sticky and disorienting.

If you are creating a parkour scenario for someone else to enjoy, ensure that they are able to toggle their speed. Place clear starting and ending points. For lava-focused parkour, do not make the lava too deep as it makes it opaque and disorienting. For more on the use of water and ice than parkour, see my article Minecraft Water Elevator and Ice Road.

Understand the Obstacles

New parkour courses tend to be designed differently, and understanding the obstacles helps the player identify the easiest path they believe they can take to complete the parkour course. Many courses will have initial start leaps and wall runs as well as end chasm leaps to other obstacles requiring extreme precision, and players should know this when planning where to leap next.

The Rob’s new parkour 3.0 map has a lot of lanes or paths introducing different difficulty levels of parkour courses. This path to the left is the freedom pathway and is `EASY`. Other paths to the right are more challenging ranging from Medium to Hard. This provides an example of how understanding the obstacles aids in the selection of the appropriate level. The older parkour approach to course design introduces all elements of a particular category (e.g. all wall runs if that is the map’s style) uniformly without developer-preference for earlier or later key obstacles.

Start with Basic Jumps

In parkour and in Minecraft, movement is the key to master fundamentals. Start with wa-jump and sa-jump exercises to get the movement apparatus working. Wa and sa jumps are methods of moving sideways to get from point A to point B, and they use w + space bar + a and w + space bar + d respectively.

A wa jump is a diagonal jump run into the wall, often performed from an edge. It entails jumping off the wall at an angle while utilizing parkour movements to exhaust as little energy as feasible. A sa jump is the same as the wa jump with the variation being that the wall is now on the right. Throughout the game, implement these standard moves. Begin by jumping at easy heights while maintaining complete control of the player. Gradually raise the height of the leap as you feel more at ease doing these. To gain velocity, soar without pauses, focusing on staying low and not bounding too high.

How to Improve Your Parkour Skills?

You can improve your parkour skills in Minecraft by constantly practicing, flipping around until you find a balance between experimentation and precision, choosing your parkour spot wisely, leveraging any maps with difficulty designations, and lowering your expectations.

Just like anywhere else, with practice comes perfection. Kamaji’s video does a good job in showcasing the benefits of practice when he announces This was my THIRD attempt to record this.

Practice Regularly

This tip may sound obvious, but many people forget they cannot parkour expertly in just a day. Like real parkour, you need to practice and continually improve your movement skills. Train in safe parkour areas where water is placed to avoid taking fall damage when you slip and fall.

YouTube educates in safe, parkour areas with water to avoid taking fall damage when you slip and fall. Check out 10-Minute Parkour to start leveling up your practice routine.

Watch Tutorials and Guides

Minecraft parkour is difficult and sometimes counterintuitive, and parkour playstyles are often the envy of other players. So a viable way to learn new tricks and techniques is to watch movement and parkour artists play the game and explain their strategy.

Many players contribute their Minecraft parkour expertise by giving tutorials on their own YouTube or networking with established creators who share similar techniques. Use this info and learn endlessly by watching YouTube, Dailymotion, or TikTok content. Look out for the term Matik to easily reference parkour videos. Engineers among us willing to break down movement into its simplest form will greatly benefit from Noteblock’s movement guides.

These are some of the most popular YouTube channels to watch if you wish to learn parkour in Minecraft. It is also important to try out different strategies provided and sometimes fail, to create your own game plan which works best for you.

Challenge Yourself with Harder Maps

Most Minecraft parkour maps are separated into multiple levels of varying difficulty. As you complete the easier challenges, you may decide to move on to harder ones. Notice and appreciate the improvement in your abilities as you transition.

If you are just starting out and the higher difficulty levels are posing a challenge, try dedicating part of your Minecraft training to the physical component of parkour (jumping, landing, starting and stopping motion, climbing), much as one would do with the adaptive physical education courses present in American middle and high schools. You can also put on the creative mode to build a simple parkour course filled with blocks of difference which is easy to follow, and then slowly increase the complexity of the course as you see improvement.

What are Some Advanced Techniques in Minecraft Parkour?

Some advanced techniques in Minecraft parkour include performing a piston jump and practices that will help increase the difficulty of speed runs. [Pistons] are redstone components used for moving blocks and pushing players and mobs around. Piston parkour usually involves jumping while standing on a piston – just as it is about to fire to be sent to a remote area rapidly.

Speed runs are known as time trials or time attacks in video games. They are where players race through a level as quickly as possible and are generally considered to be more challenging than completing the same level in parkour format.

Wall Jumping

Wall jumping is a parkour technique involving the interaction with solid and obstruction blocks in the game to simulate a jump. By using the collision mechanics of the surroundings, a player can perform a jump by leveraging the collision acceleration points of a wall or object to multiply their velocity and ascend a wall. The thick Minecraft player model means that you need a 3-block wide ‘corridor’ or tube to wall jump. Extremely steep surfaces and sloping floors make wall jumping easier and more effective. When practicing wall jumping it is recommended to have a soft surface on the side opposite the wall a player would be landing on.

To start wall jumping in Minecraft players should build walls to act like one side of the tube. Take care to build a taller than wide shaped jump target wall. Adjust the number of layers of wall and floors of the tube and the size of the tube depending on the ability of the player to make the wall jump. This isn’t actually a prerequisite before practicing the process, but making the walls thick and path simple will minimize any difficulties from the denseness of the player model with the technique.

Ladder Climbing

Ladder climbing is a less-energetic method of ascension than-wall running since it takes only one block to climb and descends more naturally. There is no need to jump on a wall as jumping on stairs works just as well, and the one-block ascensions are made almost blindly since the eyes remain on the ladder.

These factors can be important of one is under duress during parkour maneuvers in Minecraft. Prepare the ladder path by attaching two ladders to the center of the wall and continue placing ladders upward. The character will cling to the ladders once walking close enough and can press forward over the mouse to go climb them.

Sprinting and Jumping

Sprinting and jumping can be obstacles in the accessible world of Minecraft.

By default, you cannot jump while sprinting, but using forge, there is a mod that allows you to aerial jump while sprinting (Smart Moving mod). This recreation of parkour basics allows for a broader range of immersive stunts. This includes climbing up walls, climbing up walls and jumping off, tightrope jaunts, block part jumps and breaks (e.g., huge jump with block cover for parachuting), and so much more.

How to Avoid Common Mistakes in Minecraft Parkour?

Some common mistakes to avoid in Minecraft parkour are not getting enough momentum during forward jumps, trying to do too many moves at once, spending too much time on a single jump, and not being precise when walking along narrow blocks. Use momentum to your benefit. Don’t exceed your abilities too early. Long-failed jumps are wasted efforts. Balance, timing, and jump types also matter at different points on a parkour platform.

Not Using Shift Key

For p-parkour maps you will use the sh-no-no, but for general industrial parkour, the best idea is to avoid the shift key. When you hold the shift key, you come to a halt within 1.2 blocks no matter how far you continue your forward momentum, maintaining or losing whichever bounce you have at the time according to the exact speed you then continue to have. So let’s look at a scenario where you want to do a pistol strafe-jump to the left, as you see in the specifications, while maintaining your velocity.

Description of normal behavior: if you continue to use only the forward key while holding the jump key, any amount of the first thrust will propel you upward at an angular speed related to the horizontal or vertical speed you will have during and after that jump. If your forward/ backward key presses are coordinated to make no speed gain, in theory you will clear a 4 block jump while regaining or keeping most bounce from a certain height-beyond 1 block. So this is the perfect tool for speedrunning with A-S-D-W patterns only.

But in practical scenarios, it no longer gives any edge or speed-gaining abilities because of the notorious jump reset issue of Minecraft. You should instead release the shift key. Not only will you move somewhat quicker, but you will be able to clear longer jumps. When doing a p-jump to the left, for instance, if you don’t know at what speed you should hit the floor while strafe-jumping to the left, then all you have to do to reach the landing position will be 4 blocks3.5 meters per second while mid-air. Hold the left key but for extra positioning speed. Given you don’t have a jump button, just tap it several times.

If you find it impossible to reach places on normal parkour maps despite trying different methods, you could start practicing your parkour from running-jumps (where you stop pressing the walk step), straight jumping, wandering in the air for a second, and running mid-air first.

Not Timing Your Jumps Properly

There are three main components to almost all parkour jumps in more advanced courses: speed, distance, and height. This means that if you jump too soon, you will have too much of one of these components. If you miss time your jump and leave the ground too late, you miss the target jump point and will not get far enough or fast enough over the current obstacle or gap.

Fixing this issue requires the ability to quickly coordinate timing and to practice to not overshoot. Subtle corrections of when you start your jump can not only save you from missing the target but can provide you more flexibility and allow you to hone in the best possible approach for each element of the course. So while you may think you are close to full mastery of the course, or fully in-tune with the map, don’t be afraid to tweak your timing slightly and see if a slight adjustment can help your course time.

Tips for Improving Jumps: A quick course on your local speed parkour map where you emphasize proper timing. Determine which parts of the course are the most difficult and most often missed. Take some time to focus on how the player leaves the block before the problematic portion. Then take some time to cover esoteric turns around corners and subtle adjustments to keep pitch and height at exactly the right settings throughout a jump. This can help to identify if there are jumps missed due to having too much or too little vertical speed. Then apply it until you master the exact jumping speed required at that location.

Not Taking Breaks

Though you may feel unstoppable or excited to keep going at top speed, this not only raises the likelihood of injury but can also cause you to become fatigued and prevent you from executing important bounces or jumps, resulting in failure. Be sure to allow yourself some time off between exercises and prevent muscle tension by performing calisthenics or other gentle activities. If your muscles fail before you complete, repeat the course or area.

Conclusion: Tips and Tricks for Successful Minecraft Parkour

Follow these tips and tricks to be more successful at Minecraft parkour. Being successful will lead to greater enjoyment of parkour and the game itself. These tips are divided into basic proficiency, playing for real, and personal health. For basic proficiency, keep your shift key handy, use a good parkour map, and team up with experienced friends. While playing for real, use handy tricks and shortcuts, take breaks, and acknowledge the parkour map creator’s efforts. To maintain personal health, exercise other limbs besides fingers, drink water, and admit when it is time to quit.

Once you answer the question what is a Minecraft manhunt, remember the completed goal of finding your items and escaping from your hunter. Complete your adventures of allying with a bunch of zombies and skeletons to assist in your escape with the items. If you consistently identify the most crucial benefit of multiple person definition of the game, then you can traverse the challenge pretty effectively.
