Martial Arts Falling Techniques (i.e. Breakfalls)
This section looks at martial arts falling techniques such as breakfalls and forward rolls. These techniques reduce the chance of injury when a martial artist has been knocked to the ground or has been thrown to the ground. These techniques also allow the martial artist to quickly get back on their feet and deal with their attacker. Falling techniques are used by a wide range of martial arts such as Judo, Aikido and Krav Maga.
These techniques should be practiced on your knees and/or from a crouching position before attempting a standing fall. All exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized.
