    Yes yes yes, I know you can do that roll on concrete. Obviously you might get bruised up or cut depending partly on random chance. I guess I should phrase my question better.

    IF you were to get thrown on concrete, and you couldn't roll out of it, would you *slap* the concrete (say, for example, if you did a side breakfall)? I suspect yes, but does anyone have any tips for not fucking up your hand/arm?

    But yeah, that roll is sweet as hell.

    So you're asking if there's anyway to NOT **** your hand up if you SLAP concrete?

    Genius.

    It depends on how I am falling. If I am just pushed over from the front I try and kind of "sit down" and make myself into a ball in order spring back up. However if the force is so hard that I lose my feet I try and slap in order to disperse some of the impact. My idea is that I would rather **** up my hand than a spine. I never slap on the front roll though- in relation to that picture which was posted, I always think of my left hand acting as a sort of guide in order to keep the impact directly from my back.
    Please also keep in mind this is just my thought process- I have never tried it full force on concrete . . .

    I've done front rolls and some pretty hard break falls on tile. Your body isn't made of glass it can handle break falls on a hard surface. If you have some nasty old injuries in some of your joints then your **** out of luck. I don't know about slapping the ground but if i am using my arm to spread out the impact of a fall I'm using my whole inside of my forearm not just my hand.

    I just got back from a friend's house, and tried out a breakfall on concrete. Nothing too hard, just a gentle Tai Otoshi.

    On reflex alone, I didn't slap the concrete--all that happened was that I exhaled on impact and came up generally unhurt. So I guess you don't need to slap! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

    My skill with a sword is formidable. My skill with the s-word is flat-out lethal.

    It's just that I don't run and do rolls for fun.

    Slap with your foot more if you are wearing shoes. The more comfortable you are falling, the less likely you will get hurt.
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    I definately wouldn't slap my hand on concrete. We practice all our breakfalls in the dojo on a wooden floor without mats, so we don't use the slapping technique at all. Some of the lads did a demo in the high street during a local festival, and they were able to break fall on the street ok; the local jiu jitsu guys couldn't do it as they were used to slapping mats as they landed.

    Don't break fall with your hands or arms - you might hit a kerb and break something.
