    Question on body mechanics and efficiency… would it not be more structurally efficient to put the palm on the ground instead of the back of your hand? Forward rolls with palm on the ground can’t hold your body weight. As an exaggeration, try to pause for a moment just before committing your legs from firing into the roll. How long can you hold this position with the back of your hand vs palm on the ground?

    As a follow up question, In practice I have seen that keeping that leg tucked in as you are coming up does not provide a solid base. That leg should be out already in position to stand instead of tucked. When I see this as an attacker, I immediately drive into the person to prevent them from standing up.

    Nice details. It’s going to take some drilling for me to get this.
