Re: ukemi - How necessary is high break fall?

There are sutemi versions of many techniques where, for example, nage acquires uke's limb and balance and then nage does a breakfall on purpose. This is just one example of an avenue of study that will remain closed to you if you cannot do a standing breakfall.
