The rolling breakfall works on a different principle from the SLAPPING BREAKFALLS. Instead of spreading the force of the fall across the entire body, the rolling breakfall turns the downward force of the fall into a gentle forward motion.
This has MANY applications to the combat infiltrator and stealth warrior.
The rolling breakfall, in combination with special footwear, can be used to leap from a much greater height than normal. It can also be used to exit a vehicle moving at considerable speed safely.
It is very important to remember that breakfalls are not foolproof. It is still possible to be injured when doing a breakfall, if, for example, there happens to be a sharp stone embedded in the ground where you do your breakfall. However, such things are unavoidable, though a highly trained warrior can even manage to move his body in midair to avoid such an obstacle observed at the last moment. Nevertheless, the fact remains that breakfalls provide a much greater degree of safety while falling than an absolutely uncontrolled fall.

...WATCH THIS VIDEO CAREFULLY TO LEARN THE BREAKFALL...
The rolling breakfall is very easy to execute. All you have to do is to tuck in the arm as shown, and go into a gentle roll over the shoulder, as you tuck your body into a ball. Look at the video again if you have any difficulty doing this breakfall.
Remember the following points...
You need to tuck in your head and neck safely to prevent damage to the neck.
Roll as smoothly as possible. Remember that this breakfall relies upon converting your falling motion into a gentle forward rolling motion to dissipate the force of the fall.
Practice both this and the SLAPPING BREAKFALLS regularly. Ninja students who are beginning their training practice at least fifty repetitions of the forward and backward slapping breakfalls, and a similar number of repetitions of the basic rolling breakfall every day for at least a month. It is not necessary for you to do the same. But do hold in mind, ALWAYS, that the more you practice, the more perfect you become.
