“ The trouble is that the average
man doesn’t know anything about
falling easily. Now, one of the first
things that a gymnast or one who
performs anywhere above the ground
must learn is just how to avoid seri
ous injury in falls.
“ Nearly every gymnast tumbles
sooner or later; but, if you will
think it over, the number of profes
sional and amateur performers hurl
in a year is comparatively small.
The reason for that is that they
have learned not only how to avoid
falling, but how to protect them
selves when the fall does come.
“ Just as an example, I had a fall
from a height of about twenty feet
the other day, and I got right up
from the floor practically unhurt
although I confess that it shook
me up a good deal more than 1
liked. In falling, however, I re
laxed my muscles and, as the ath
letes say, ‘folded’ my head into my
chest. I struck on the uppermost
part of my back, just below tlu
neck. When anybody is falling, that
is the part of the body on which tc
“ I am not a particularly heavy
man, but I am fairly well protected
by my muscles. Those on the back
of my neck were a sufficient cushion
With that to help me the fall wai-
not so terrifying.
“ Now, the reason why the ordi
nary man is so easily hurt in a fall
is that he thinks he must ‘steel’ him
self to the ordeal, as it were. IIt
comes down, sprawling out, with hie
arms and legs rigid. Nine times
out of ten he either breaks a limb
or severely sprains a muscle. That
is the wrong way to fall.
“ If you want to see the right way
take a few lessons from your cat.
If she is a good, 'healthy cat, with
a good training, she never jumps 01
falls as if she was trying to break
“ Let me sum all of this up by say
ing that, to be a really good athlete,
one must know how to relax hi*
muscles as well as distend them.
Try a fall and see if I ’m not right.”
