Re: Youth and breakfalls.

Breakfalls are best learned when the student is ready. My bro was taking breakfalls before he knew what they were. He was seven when he finally started aikido and he was break-falling not long after. I didn't get up the nerve to try them until I was 12 or 13. Falling is best learned when you're a kid. Kids don't break. They bounce.
