Re: Teaching front rolls

Tried the head holding again with one troublesome case, it seemed to work. I reviewed the DVD and used a more gentle approach. From a kneeling position. I also told him to put the v of his arm and torso on the mat with his chin on his shoulder and plop right over. I don't know if this is helpful but I tapped the part I wanted him to put on the mat. I'm not sure if it was redundant, telling him and then tapping but the tactile reinforcement seemed to help.

Thanks!
