Falling Safely

If nothing else, everyone should learn two physical skills: swimming and falling.

The most important thing I learned from my short time in kids’ Judo classes was how to fall safely in a way that minimizes impact. On more than one occasion — like the time I stopped short on my bike falling over my handlebars but rolled safely back to my feet in the middle of the road — this skill has saved me from more serious injuries.
