So does anyone out there have any hints or tips about how to fall? How do you train your arms to stay close to your body instead of trying to brace with them? Is it a Martial Arts thing? A Yoga thing? I’ve thought about trying to fall (when no one is around, of course) from different heights (short heights — Webster’s Unabridged, the bottom rung of a step ladder, a piece of firewood) onto different surfaces to try and figure out the best way to do it. Would it be wise to simply fall down from a standing position with arms crossed? How about tucking and rolling? Is learning to tuck the chin good or bad? Or neither? And there’s always the example of poor Mr. Reeve and how do we explain that to our loved ones?
