Ought obese students be allowed to practice given the elevated risk of serious injury? I think this ought to be considered, especially in regards to break falls.
Perhaps another question should be:

"Ought any students be allowed to perform breakfalls for 17 years on standard 2" blue mats, with no other shock absorbing elements?"
