While the breakfalls in judo are very effective in what they do, they don't really "flow/accept/yield" into the mat, esp side breakfall.

Does anyone have any advice on some kind of combo judo/aikido side ukemi that would result in less "splat" AND would work if thrown with a dynamic judo throw?
I think judo falls "accept/yield" to the mat
I wouldn't try to somehow avoid the judo hard fall. If you're off just a bit, you could get hurt. Just try to make your judo falls better!! If someone puts a "real" (tournament.... I want the point ) throw on you, they won't let go and will make you take a very hard fall!!
