Safe Falling Class: Rocking and Rolling
The first actual falling skills you learn in our classes are
how to rock smoothly back and forth while exhaling and keeping the
spine gently curved and chin tucked to the chest, and then how to roll
the body from side-to-side into the ideal side-fall position.
These exercises can be practiced at home with minimal matting, or
on a firm bed. Repetition of the exercises will imprint the
proprioceptive sensations so that the movements will feel natural
