The practice of Udo combines falls, rolls, flips, sweeps, throws, take downs, along with punching, kicking and joint manipulation. The first step in learning Udo is to learn how to fall and roll. When practicing falling and rolling, you learn how to disperse the force of impact while protecting vital areas of your body.

Then the student learns to understand momentum and how to redirect force back toward the attacker. Learning to control and change the center of gravity and momentum is one of the keys to execute a successful throw, sweep or take down.

Through the practice of Udo students develop body control, balance, flexibility, coordination, timing and confidence.
