    I can't do a proper cartwheel and I'm a dan grade, but I recognise their usefulness for Judo and won't object to anyone saying cartwheels are beneficial to your Judo.

    Mind you, my shitty cartwheels are enough to have gotten me off a fair few tomoe nage and sumi gaeshi.

    How terribly droll a colonial seeking to derive amusement from superior linguistic abilities...

    The "like a tiny toothpick" line actually made me snort. Not only is your arm brittle like a toothpick, but even a toothpick is an oversized comparison for that weak baby arm you wrongly assumed would support you.

    As for the cartwheels, I would think a shitty one would be better, as it'll plant less weight on your arm and give you less chance to fall the wrong way (away from your belly or backward). I think what's shown in the OP video is a good balance drill but high risk enough to be called stupid when attempted in competition, glorious though it may look if it works.

    Cartwheels can be useful, but, i think I'll pass on the chance for the snapped arm. also helps he is a lightweight, would love to see some super heavy's go for this.
