Run Safer Asics Safety Tip #3 – How to Fall if you’re pushed
It’s extremely important to know how to fall when you hit the ground so you don’t get knocked out, or break an elbow. You’ve always got to be able to utilize anything you can as a weapon. The first movement when you fall when someone pushes you, is you want to tuck your chin as deep as you can towards your chest. The second thing you’re going to want to do when you hit the ground is high-five the ground. That way it takes the impact away from your elbow, so you don’t break your arm, so you can have those tools available. So you can use your hands, elbows, and everything you can to keep you safe, and get back into that safety zone.
