Can you honestly say youve never seen anyone just take fake ukemi?
Yes, I have seen that.

Quote:
Never seen anyone just fall down when nothing happened?
Yep, seen that too...

We all want to believe amazing things are possible, but isnt it more likely that this is whats happening here?
Quite possible...so if you don't like it, and don't see a point to it, don't do it.

Quote:
Even with more martial techniques, do you really think its neccesary to do a breakfall on any technique other than koshi-waza?
Yes. At least in the yoshinkan. Shihonage kuzushi, some versions of kotegaeshi nage, aiki-nage, iriminage and others.

Hey, if the vid in question doesn't float your boat, just say so and move on.

Best,
Ron
