Re: When to take a fall (it's not that simple!)

Hey, they're your wrists. You make the call ;-)

I'd rather fall more often and not have athritis at 60 ;-)

Having said that - generally when your both still discussing the move / ironining it out, in a stop star kinda way = no fall

As soon as you're off balance (even in above situation) = ukemi

Depends on your parnter too. Some just wanna be sullen (don't even say hello) and start throwing. The you pretty much start falling straight away ;-)
