The practice of slapping the mat during Ukemi (breakfall training) is to disperse the impact through a larger area of your body to minimize chance of injury.

In many styles, Kiai or Kihap is also part of the technique to release the tension upon impact.

Been a while since I practiced Ukemi. Hope I am explaining it right. Any Judokas or JJJ guys want to help out? I am at the point now where I just do it.

Ukemi waza is very important...it takes time to master.
Your fall is not so hard as you think..you just have to get mat tough..in time you will.
As sugested kia when hitting the mat which forces you to breath. You are supose to fall on your side so the impact is distributed along your back muscles Traps, Lats and your outside thigh. keep the inside arm at 45 degrees. This will keep you from hurting you shoulder. And most important RELAX. If you are tense you'll get hurt.
Ukemi waza is self taught. By that I mean when you do it wrong ..you'll know. When you do it right you'll know. Ed

Better to be a little bored and know how to fall and not get hurt, than to rush into something else and get injured
