Falling Safely for Judo & Jiu Jitsu - Ukemi Guide

The first step to learning judo, grappling, or any martial art should be proper falling. Rear ukemi is the very first technique on our curriculum and is the most likely direction that you'll be falling during your grappling career.

Rear Ukemi - Falling Backwards

We learn the rear ukemi in 3 stages:

  • basic rolling (like an egg)
  • falling from a seated position
  • falling from a standing position

Front Ukemi - Falling Forward

Side Ukemi - Falling Left & Right

Rolling Ukemi - Advanced Falling
