Hi Graham,

I think the point people were making about break falls is not so much the force with which they are done, but the habit of landing on the arm or hand. This is fine as long as you are able to gently lower yourself to the ground, but if you are genuinely falling, this can lead to all sorts of messy injuries involving wrists, elbows and collarbones, so I would consider it a bad habit.

I understand that Robin. I agree.
