Re: High Ukemi Help?

My initial thought was that practice of this kind of ukemi would be in preparation for a more ....hmmm, thinking about this I'm not sure I have a good word....robust/advanced/free-flowing/physical(?) etc. form of practice.

It can also be about losing the fear of falling (which is also the fear of jumping).

Nikolay if you're having trouble with it it's not something to worry about, many, many people find these high falls/rolls difficult for a while.

Good martial arts are 3-dimensional, aren't they?
