Breakfall

The breakfall, or roll, is a very valuable technique used by traceurs to distribute the impact of a fall through a rolling motion. This reduces stress on the knees and legs and also helps maintain forward momentum throughout the movement.

A breakfall technical is class of movement not a single movement, the parkour roll is breakfall, but not all breakfalls are rolls.
I shall not fear, fear is the mind killer the little death that precedes total obliteration

I will face my fear, I will let it pass over and through me and were it is gone, I will turn the inner eye and see its path, and only I will remain.
