karate classes fallingThis week in every class we will be helping you to learn how to land on the ground properly if you fall, are thrown, or forced to the ground. Learning how to land correctly can save you from broken bones a concussion or worse.

1. Slap: When practicing falls your arms can take most of the impact, by slapping the ground as you land. Be sure not to hit your elbows on the ground.

2. Exhale: Be sure to exhale forcefully as you hit the ground. This will stop you from having the “wind” knocked out of you – Shocking your lungs and making it difficult to breath for about a minute. To prevent this be sure to exhale.

3. Watch Your Head: As you practice drills in class, one of your main goals is to never let your head hit the ground. Keep you chin tucked and never allow your head to snap backwards.

Everyone should try a class this week
By Dennis Tosten

Learning how to land if you slip or fall is as important as wearing a seat belt knowing and hoping you won’t need it, but you should definitely have it on in case you do. Thousands of people are injured every year by simple slips and falls in the bathroom, on slippery pavements, or during everyday simple activities. If you try a class this week, you can learn a skill that is very likely to come in handy during your lifetime. So come in, take one class, it’s free and you will add another life skill to your bag of tricks! One hour of class is much better than 6 weeks in a cast.
