Though this exercise might seem at first to be some sort of rolling breakfall, it is not. It is, instead, an exercise for enhancing the flexibility of the spine.


CRUCIAL POINTS TO REMEMBER

This exercise MUST be done on an extremely soft surface. A training mat or soft grass would be nice, but ideally, you would do this exercise on softer padding even than that - perhaps a mattress placed on the floor.

This exercise is NOT a breakfall. Do not use it as a breakfall. This exercise is a stretching exercise for the spine that can enhance your breakfalls.

Do NOT do too much of this exercise. Complete beginners must do this no more than one to three times a WEEK. As you become more advanced, you can increase the number of times you do this exercise. Desist from this exercise if you feel any sort of discomfort or strain. This exercise is not necessary to your progress. If it helps you, do it. If it does not help you, or you feel a strain while doing it, do not do it.

...TIPS ON THE FLEXIBILITY EXERCISE FOR BREAKFALLS...

This exercise is very easy to do. Simply fold your hands behind your head, as shown, bend over, and gently roll forward. Try to make the roll as smooth as possible, and try to avoid slamming the back down as your roll.

Breakfalls: A Rolling Breakfall Flexibility Exercise

If you find this exercise too difficult to do, or if you always end in slamming your back on to the ground, then do NOT do this exercise. Instead, you can simply practice more of the FORWARD ROLLING BREAKFALLS.
