Ai symbol Re: High Ukemi Help?

We have the kids classes do this for fun and it builds confidense. It is purely optional and mostly a gymnastic excercise. The photo of my son shows of how tricky it can be to get in a proper position to roll out. Of more use is jumping over length of bags as it helps extend the body. Us ... older... folks don't go that high as the risk of injury increases with age significantly over 35ish.
