Hi. So my question is:
Isn't there an age limit for breakfalling?
I started at fourty five, and I thought that breakfalls were for the young people.
Hi Marie,

At the dojo I practice, there is a woman who is over 60 ( I think she is 63 or 64) and started Aikido over 50. Her breakfalls are amazing. People throw her with all Aikido nage techniques.

And she has NO previous experiences in martial arts...
