Re: Youth and breakfalls.

They do breakfalls all the time in Judo. Lots and lots of kids do judo. In my own opinion I would teach him breakfalls straight away, feels like an safer option than rolls on many occasions.
Start slow and don't make a fuzz about it, people should start to teach breakfalls to beginners at their first class, why wait?
