Instructions for a Judo Back Breakfall (Ushiro Ukemi)
This page provides details for the Judo Back Breakfall (Ushiro Ukemi in Japanese). These Ukemi techniques help Judo students to land safely when thrown or they are knocked off balance. Other breakfalls include Mae Ukemi (Forward Breakfall), Yoko Ukemi (Side Breakfall) and Zenpo Kaiten (Forward Roll Breakfall).
The back breakfall is very useful to learn as you can injure your back and head if you fall improperly when thrown in Judo.
For other techniques (i.e. Judo throws), please visit the main Judo Techniques section.
