Donovan Waite is great but I am confused by the idea of him not doing breakfalls. He does, and teaches, masses of them constantly. He does them well in such a way that they are as safe as possible, and teaches others to do them well, but that's the _opposite_ of not doing breakfalls...
NO, I did not mean that he does not do break falls. I meant exactly as you said, he has a method of doing it in such a way that they are safe and avoids injury. Sorry for the confusion.
