Btnhdude no one really cares. I highly doubt you truly are, since people don't make stupid comments on fml when they are drunk. Nice try at looking cool though?

That or OP's "sensei" doesn't know a thing. We do that so we don't hurt more important parts, for example: our head/brains! We have instincts for a reason.

Our instincts might save us, say from a fractured skull, but not without paying a price. Being able to fall properly ensures safety, prevention of broken bones etc. If anything, it complements your instincts.

28- No see your suppose to slap out with you arms and tuck your head in so you don't get a head injury or hurt your wrists because they could snap. He knew what he was talking about lol

Either it's a shitty school or your fairly new at it, I've taken karate for 10 years and the first thing I learned was to break that instinct to not hurt myself

No, it doesn't ensure you won't get broken bones. We see patients CONSTANTLY who take martial arts and swear by it with broken bones and serious injuries because they do what these idiot instructors are telling them. Thousands of years of instincts > over some guy/gal who says otherwise. Hmmm... Smart of you.

52- That's common sense... and what most people do naturally if they fall backwards. Falling forwards, people put their hands out and break their wrists often.
