Training Notes – A breakfall is just a roll

Snapshot 1 (14-08-2015 5-52 PM)The below video examines the structural similarities between a forward roll and a breakfall and includes a training exercise whereby students learn to appreciate that a breakfall in substance is nothing more than a roll.  The video is from a class given by Peter Kelly Sensei, Chief Instructor, Aikido Yuishinkai Australia, at our dojo on 17 May 2014.

At our dojo we have a tailored program for new students that allows them to learn to breakfall in a fear-free and safe environment.

The program has proved particularly successful.  For further information on the program and the types of exercises that are include see – Learning to breakfall: Its a lot easier than it looks.
