    >>10 forward rolls
    What’s the point? The forward roll is a safety precaution. It teaches you to control your fall. It will develop into a handstand roll out.
    Squat all the way down on your toes, place your hands no more than 1 foot in front of your toes. Tuck your chin to your chest. Lean your weight onto your hands, lift the hips up. Then bend the elbows and continue to lean forward until the weight transfers from your hands to your shoulder blades. Keep a tight stomach so you can roll all the way to your feet.
    This should be a roll. There should be no thumping. Your head should never have any weight on it. However, as you are lifting your hips and bend your arms, the back of your head should gently touch the ground (while the weight is supported by your arms). This will ensure that you are not too high. If you are too high, you will fall onto your back and knock the air out of your lungs, rather than roll.
