Re: high breakfalls?

Do you know actually what a break-fall is? That might sound like a very insulting question but I believe the simplicity is lacking in most Aikidoka.
A break fall is nothing more than an advanced way of rolling. If uke focuses on the forward roll the break fall takes care of itself. In other words, if a student can do a splendid forward roll he/she should be able to do a splendid breakfall.
