Zenpo kaiten (זנפו קייטן), forward roll, is a basic ukemi technique in the Akban syllabus.

Description of forward roll, zenpo kaiten

The most important thing at this roll is to let the back of the shoulder blade touch the floor, the roll should be slightly diagonal from back of the shoulder blade to the opposite waist line. Place one of your legs in front, bend your upper body and roll forward. Roll with the knees tight toward your chest so that the tucked position will cause you to land on the soles of two feet. This way you end up standing and ready at the end of the roll.



This technique is part of Budo Ninjutsu Grade requirements syllabus Yellow belt grade requirements,Orange belt grade requirements and of Black Belt grade requirements
