Since my latest posts have focused on my excitement with Kenichi Ito, a number of people have asked if there any other good examples of Simian runners... There are!
Here are a few examples to show that you don't hvae to be as dedicated as Ito to run fast on 4 limbs:
Mick Mastroainni demonstrates an excellent transition from 2 legs to simian running. The transition is the most explosive aspect of the simian run technique.
In this video, Nani, shows incredible speed and agility in this sprint race.
Though I'm not really an expert in Parkour, a younger advisor recommended the Simian Way look here for similarites. In this parkour video, you can really see the speed and power which all fours movement can posses.

Of course, my first recommendation would be my upcoming book The Simian Way, but since it won't be available to ship until 2013, my top recommendation are the The Trail Ape running gloves. Great for both experienced and beginning simian runners. They're even recommended for runners who prefer staying upright, but may have the occassional trail-tumpble or unplanned scramble. check them out:

Serendipitous timing! Just as the Simian Way is generating momentum, Kenishi Ito proves that humans are no where near their potential in running on all fours. He broke his previous 100m record by over 1 second. A 6% improvement which is incredible for this distance. Dr. Dinkhum hopes to set up a running clinic with Ito for 2013.

My work has inspired an team of leading athletes to make an incredible Simian running glove. It's perfect for both the new and experience Simian trail runner as it provides excellent grip and protection. It's humbling to see such a great product on the market... they are on the cutting edge of trail running! check it out:

This 2006 video puts a Chimp against a Navy Seal... regardless the result, look how easily the chimp moves. He's clearly exerting about half the energy of the seal. A lifetime of total body integration and movement is the key!
