Children pair off inside the newly opened Guardian Baltimore jiu-jitsu studio and try to cross one of their legs behind their partner to take their rival down.

As they fall, the students slam their hands against the mat–a trick that studio owner Carlos Raba says will stop their heads from hitting the ground–and the sound reverberates through the room.

Safety comes first for Raba as he teaches the kids to let themselves fall, rolling backwards, rather than trying to catch themselves with their arms or elbows, which could dislocate a shoulder or cause other injuries, he said.

“When we fall, we want to fall across the mat like we’re spilling across the mat,” he said, first describing the motion, then rolling backwards from a squatting position.
