    From the falling leaf blocking system thread
    Other falling leaf techniques i found

    Okinawa te falling leaf kata
    - floating strike such as leaves in the wind followed by swift turning blocks


    Aikido falling leaf fall
    - redirects the roll of the fall as you hit the ground like a leaf floating just as it hits the ground


    Kali falling leaf strike
    - (failed to find a good vid) but starts as a high hook like thrust or strike, then the tip of the weapon twirls a bit and then follows through with a slash similar to a leaf falling and making a quick loop before continuing along its decent

    And for ATLA fans

    Interesting training progression for the ukemi in the Aikido clip.
