Here is a news segment titled “Practicing a Fall to Prevent Injury” about Kupuna Aikido in Hawaii which offers classes to teach people how to fall safely.
From the article: “Every year, millions of people 65 and older fall, according to the CDC, and three-million of them go to the emergency room. You probably wouldn’t think that martial arts could be the answer, because while you can’t plan for a fall, you can practice for it. Kupuna are falling left and right in this class by the non-profit Kupuna Aikido Hawai’i.”
