Hi Ed.
You respectfully ask so I shall respectfully answer.

In this video after abt 3 mins you will find your answer.

These originally were not teaching or demonstration videos but done for fun for ourselves. To understand this particular one it was yet another occasion at the end of class where I offered to wake up the person concerned Ki. It always does the trick.

Others have mentioned break-falls, or lack of them. I do teach break-falls but I also teach not to launch yourself into them. In fact I have that as the senior thing. I say flying break-falls are only for projections.

Regards.G.
