Re: Knocking off the rust

I enjoy taking falls when the person I am working with is actually throwing me. That being said it depends on the level of partner I am working with as to whether or not I will fall. If I am working with a less experienced partner I am more likely to fall so that my partner is able to learn the movement. If it is a more advanced partner they better be taking my balance etc because they should know better. I think of it as a responsibility to make sure that the technique is "real," for the person executing it at the time, before I take the fall.
