Re: high breakfalls?

Did you watch the video?
Yes. I watched it. For me I would entitle it practising break-falls, that's all. All break-falls, or rather, good ones have certain things in common. They are strong, definite, technically perfect and completely relaxed. All at the same time. If that's what you mean by soft then fine.

However you were referring to high breakfalls. I take this to mean such as done in koshi nage or judo for example. Such as done from up/down/splatt.

Not shown in that video.

I think many forget what a break-fall is and from that comes all the various strange opinions.
