Re: Out of breath whilst rolling

hmmm...I don't think you need to "step back". If you are doing a short series of small rolls, that is a good format to start practicing your breathing rhythm. Many of us started with the "hold your breath" syndrome and this is actually a very good place to start replacing it with healthy breathing patterns you can carry both into the rest of your training and also off the mat.
