Re: atemi or fall

Not afraid of either presently.

Coming from a bashing background I knew how to take a few.

In the beginning it felt very un-natural to take the fall.

After I recovered from a few separated ribs (always remember to exhale as you land), I learn to take ukemi pretty good.

As a big guy, my biggest fear is falling on someone.
