Falling and rolling forward

Yoshigasaki Sensei
explains falling forward in a form that can also be useful in real life.

1. Partner exercise: Rolling sideways while protecting the head.
2. Problem: Space is too small, short form of mae ukemi.
3. Ki Test: Using the forearm as protection.
4. Beauty: Big form with jumping.
5. Mathematics: Falling by changing form. If you have to fall shortly, the knee touches the ground first.
