Re: Break Falls

Ive been training two years and just starting to get them. I practice by doing a forward roll and staying down, ending up in Proper breakfall position. Sometimes my teacher will have me roll over my arm while he holds my hand, that is a real breakfall without the height. he assures me that when I can land properly consistently, it won't make a difference if I'm three feet in the air or three inches, so you may as well train for the inches and let the feet take care of themselves.
