Re: Looking for Ukemi Fall Names

Hi all,

to my knowledge, which is unfortunately not always corresponding to my practical abilities:

there is: neko ukemi (cat fall) => whatever high breakfall without slapping (猫 受身)

and the breakfall is tobu ukemi or tobi ukemi ( 跳 受身 ).

And then there is ushiro otoshi (後落), which is a sort of soft backwards breakfall (which I try to learn since two years but still don't manage...)

Best regards,

Eva
