    Hey guys. I asked this on sherdog but I want more information then what I got there. Such a bad atmosphere there.

    Anyway, I left the bujinkan and am starting FMA and judo. Now I know that both judo and bujinkan have ukemi. How are the break falls and rolls from bujinkan similar or different to the ukemi in Judo?

    Say the Forward roll, I was taught to get as low as possible and roll opposite shoulder to opposite hip. Do they do rolls in other directions say side rolls or back rolls?

    How about the break falls, would they be similar?

    Do you get many opportunities to use rolls in judo?

    Thanks for the input guys.

    Ya, there is good information there but so much bitter hatred for anything not on the approved list of arts. Its worse then Bullshido.

    Tough to say not sure what you did in the prior class. We do every thing from basics and rolls on up to what I can only describe as a head spin drill the other day in judo
