Re: Rolls and breakfalls

The shaking of your hands in front of your face does seem to work. I've been told that the mind still percieves motion, even after the roll is over and you're still. By giving the mind motion to look at, you trick it into not being dizzy. Not sure if it actually works like this, but that's what I've been told all along. I pass this information along to newcomers, if it works, great, if not, it's funnier than hell watching them stumble around the mat shaking their hands. It has worked for me, not promising that it will work for everyone.
