Forward Shoulder Roll
The purpose of the forward shoulder roll is to break a fall from an aggressor’s attack and use the momentum to get back on your feet quickly.
The forward shoulder roll will be practiced in stages, from the kneeling position, and from the standing position.
From the Kneeling Position
~ Place your right knee on the deck and your left leg bent with the foot flat on the deck.
From the Standing Position
~ Place your feet shoulder-width apart with your left foot forward.
