Yeah, it's a somewhat old thread, but it's also stickied. So I hope it's okay that I post.

I'm a little confused. Dropping without rolling is a WHOLE lot different from dropping with rolling. As everyone knows, the point of rolling is to distribute the force of the landing across your whole body. So just because of physics, rolling (correctly) is going to put much less force on each part of the body than just a straight landing from the same height.

It doesn't seem right to make no distinction between the two landing techniques in terms of safety (especially because one isn't even a technique). Am I totally wrong here?

Yes, landings can be detrimental if your body is not ready for them regardless of what the technique used is.

Obviously, we recommend rolling (if possible) but it can still cause injuries

The idea is that you want to always diminish the forces entering your body.  Very few people I've seen, even experienced traceurs, are able to CONSISTENTLY apply the roll in a safe manner.  Thus, why damage your body if there is a more controlled way down?
