FALLING
 
Injuries may be avoided if Soldiers are taught to fall properly by using body momentum to their advantage instead of resisting it. If enough momentum is present, as in falling while running or in jumping from a height, the Soldier can extend his hands to catch his weight while ducking his head and forward rolling onto his feet. The key to falling without injury from the standing position is relaxation and rolling the body to take the momentum of the fall on the outside of one leg, hip, and buttock.
