While there are plenty of tutorials out there that show how to learn Aikido break falling techniques, it is difficult to find a comprehensive beginner course with a detailed structure like this one.

Contents and Overview

This course starts with a welcoming section. First, you will get an overview of the course. I will shortly introduce myself to you so that you know with whom you will work over the duration of this course. After that, you will get introduced to the course structure and how to follow the sections and lectures.

Then, you will get familiar with Ukemi in general. You will learn about what “Ukemi” actually means, what the Japanese meaning is, where the difference to conventional rolls lies, why they are so useful, and maybe most importantly – how they exactly work!

Once you know all the details, you already start your training. You begin with the pre-exercises and work on them until you achieve a solid foundation. You will start with the first and easiest one and work yourself through all the exercises. Step by step, you will go through 10 pre-exercises which will take you from beginner level to advanced – having a really good foundation. As a natural side effect, you will significantly increase your body control, balance and agility. You will get into better shape and widen your range of abilities.

While learning the exercises, you will gradually strengthen your knowledge about break falls and you will start to see common elements which are important and learn to apply them in a natural way!

After mastering all the pre-exercises and achieving a solid foundation, you will continue with the main part – Mae Ukemi (Forward Roll), Ushiro Ukemi (Backwards Roll) and Yoko Ukemi (Sidewards Roll). In between the progressions for each Ukemi type, you also find slow-motion videos of each Ukemi. This way, you can even take a closer look at the technique, take it as a reference and compare it to your movements. And since you have a solid foundation, you are basically free to start learning any or all of the three Ukemi and master the art of falling!

If you want to learn how to protect yourself from falling…then this course is exactly right for you!
