Marine Corps Martial Arts Tan Belt - Front Break Fall
This section focuses on tan belt techniques used by the Marine Corps martial arts program. This page examines the front break fall used in the Marine Corps martial arts program. Information from Public Domain Document, MCRP 3-02B, Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP).
For more Marine Corps techniques, please visit the main Marine Corps Martial Arts Program section.
The purpose of break-falls is to reduce the chance of injury. Break-falls are used to absorb the impact if you should fall or are thrown. This will allow you to quickly get back on your feet and minimize any injury sustained by the fall. This section will cover the front break-fall, back break-fall, left/right side break-fall, and the forward shoulder roll.
A front break-fall is executed to break your fall when falling forward and will never be executed from the standing position during training.
The front break-fall is taught and practiced in stages, from the deck and from a kneeling position. The front break-fall is never executed from the standing position.
From the Deck
~ Begin by lying on the deck on your stomach.
From a Kneeling Position
~ Assume a two-knee kneeling position and look up raising your chin.
