Re: When to introduce breakfalls

Ian, did you notice as well how most UK folks start doing forward rolls over their neck. What I mean by that is put both hands on the floor and roll, you neck being the first point of impact. I hear this was how school were teaching forward rolls. Insane if you ask me...

So, my question is how do you get people out of that habbit?

I tend to make sure they understand that you need to roll on your arm first. But more tricks are always good.

The people who understand, understand prefectly. York Shodokan Aikido
