Re: A sudden fear of the floor

If the kid was doing well at rolling and then developed a fear of it, it may be that he smacked his head a bit and is too proud/embarrassed to admit it. Kids and young adults often get too big for their britches.

I can't really give much advice (what was given above sounds good to me), other than preach and practice safe keiko and demand that even the slightest injury be reported to the instructor.

A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.
