On behalf of Expert Village my name is Richard
Acuna from Champion Martial Arts in Miami, Florida, today we are showing you beginners
judo. Okay in this first clip we are going to talk about the ukemi, falls in judo they
are very important to learn at the beginning because usually in judo you are going to be
throwing in practice or throw people so you need to know how to fall. One of the first
important falls in judo is the fall to the back and I’m going to demonstrate it. You
go back like that and stand here and we roll all the way back slowly and we do the ukemi.
Now our chin always tucks in to the chest, we don’t let our head wiggle so we don’t get
a headache, and it is always forward so it does not hit the mat and the reason is you
hit with your hands if to prevent it from hurting your own body.
