Re: When to introduce breakfalls

I tend to agree with this. In the style of Aikido I am doing, sometimes we throw people from even Shihonage and they land wrong making it hurt more than it should. Learning Ukemiwaza should be an integral part of warmups. It only takes a mere 3 minutes to practics them, so it's not a big deal.

If you do them 3 minutes during warm up everytime, then people will naturally get better at them. It wont get them to want to spar with a Judo practitioner either. If anything, not knowing how to land is going to make them want to learn from a Judo practitioner.

I dont know how many times people have asked me in class how to breakfall.
