Yea, because tumbling and gymnasts learn their feats on cheese grater rough concrete.

I dont know where you get the idea anyoje is or was proposing learning to fall on rock hard surfaces.


Edit

I didnt watch the whole thing but I skipped forward and he was speaking about keeping your chin tucked in during a fall. VERY IMPORTANT. Most people never think about it. Its a learned skill to tuck your chin and pull your head away from the direction of impact.

Martial arts vids.

The "ki up/out" yells they do are to force a memory of exhale really, same as when a boxer hits or is hit, the expuksion of air protects you or produces power , and in breakfalls its power for the resistance or breaking of the inertia as you hit the ground.


Ill try to find better slower videos later when I have time. The floors they are doing this on have high density foam padding and dont really hurt to fall on.
