    Sorry thread-starter you're too late. I already LOL'd at the videos, and met with them.

    You're almost there. Put 2 and 2 together, and get back to me.

    well I don't fucking get it I was too busy getting punched in the face.....

    What's the big joke. 2 and 2? What the **** I failed math somebody clue my dumb ass in.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    yes that was the video i was talking about: "Eddie tries his first handspring ukemi from a throw..." i understand that a handspring is a legit gymnastic technique, and can be done safely, but that is in a situation where you jump into it yourself, and are prepared and have the time to execute it properly. however the example video shows it as a response to being thrown, which is a whole different kettle of fish.

    to me, it seems to be an extremely dangerous way to fall, and that a shoulder roll would be safer and a higher percentage technique, as you don't risk your wrist and if you roll properly, you can also end up on your feet in the same time it would take to handspring.

    i have learned the hard way that putting a hand out when you're falling can be a very painful mistake, either breaking the wrist, or in my case driving my elbow into my floating ribs and fracturing them. i have been thrown many, many times, on surfaces that were padded, and not so padded, and i have taken a lot of nasty falls on concrete. every time i have used a shoulder roll, i have come out unscathed.

    i just think it's a bad idea to teach people to fall in a way that is that dangerous, and can build the bad habit of putting your hand out when falling.
