Re: Shoulder pain in break falls

Jeanne,

If I may suggest, try placing yourself on the mat on you "good side" in the position you land in breakfall. Kind of lift your self in the air enouigh to turn your body and land in postion on the other side - "the badside" -check your body position correct any imprefections, not completely on my side, hand extended to far out, legs wrong, etc.

It is a Judoka training tool/warm-up and it is a great excersize as well.

Hope this helps,
Gene Martinelli
