Hey david,

I agree with you that self-preservation is paramount. I posted this topic because a couple of months back I had a friend from Yoshinkan practice with us and we were doing a figure-4 armbar (ude-garami?), in our dojo we usually take the uke down slowly because of his immobilized arm, but my friend expected me to do a straight-over fall so he threw me and I didn't know how to receive something like that so my elbow 'clicked' and I was sidelined for about a week, and I'm just curious to know what kind of breakfalls do others dojos practice?

Thanks for the response.

Adrian
