Stages in learning Beginning

a. squat down with the right knee and right shoulder forward b. lean over, tucking the head, and rolling the shoulder over forward c. keep the body in a ball and land with one leg flat, the other straight ahead d. roll up and stand.

Practice this at least 12 times from the right and left sides.

Intermediate Stage:

c. curl the shoulder over and roll the body in a ball over the top of the shoulder d. continue your roll till you are standing

Practice this roll at least 12 times with each shoulder. Be careful not to put too much weight on the wrist during the roll, and to tuck the head.

Advanced Stage:

a. have one partner kneel on the ground very low b. take a running start and jump over the partner c. while in the air tuck the shoulders and roll the body on the ground d. continue the roll till you are standing up

Continue to add people on the ground till you can jump over 3 people. Do this at least 12 times. Practice your intermediate rolls every day during your practice session and before a game. It helps warm up the body and get the blood circulating.

The Forward Break fall: sometimes the player will find that he is unable to do a forward roll because of a wall or other people, etc. Then it is necessary to do a forward break fall all to prevent injury. In this fall it is important to remember to absorb all the shock of the fall on the forearms and hands by slapping the ground very hard just before you hit it. Keep the head up and the back straight or slightly raised to keep the knees from hitting the ground.

The Backwards Fall: often the player may find himself with his feet slipping out from under him or being knocked out from under him and must fall backwards without injuring his tail bone, or hitting his head.

The points to remember are to always bend the legs when slipping to get as close to the ground as possible before hitting, keep the chin tucked into the chest, slap with the arms as hard as you can, keeping the arms 45 degrees from the body, keep the back curved and the behind off the ground by slapping the ground before your butt hits it. Keep the legs crossed for protection, or to the sides.

Practice this fall 12 times.

Intermediate:
close the arms are to the body)

a. stand up with the arms crossed in front of the body b. step backwards and begin to try to sit on the ground (an important point for it is much easier to fall from 1 foot than it is from 5 feet, and in most cases you are able to squat before you hit the ground.)

c. slap the ground very hard with the arms (notice how d. keep the butt off the ground until last, and the chin tucked into the chest so the head does not snap back and hit the ground. Yell to let your air out, so it does not get knocked out of you

Note: the backwards fall is a very easy fall to take when one feels himself falling or has any type of warning he may be falling backwards. However, if one finds himself slipping on ice, etc., and falling backwards, then he must think very fast so as to avoid hitting his coccyx, or bumping his head. These fast reflexes come with practice.

The Side Break fall: often the player will find himself falling to the sides and care must be taken to avoid a shoulder injury or a wrist injury. The knee is particularly vulnerable in this position and proper falling and cover-up after falling can prevent many knee injuries.
