This is question that I have been meaning to ask for a while.
Last November, I competed at a tournament, along with some of the others from my gym. After I left, I was informed that one of the fellow students had broken his arm during a match. I watched the video, and what happened was that both his legs were trapped and he tripped. He posted out with his arm to stop the fall, and his arm broke. This is the human body's natural reflex to falling, so was this the safest course of action he could have taken? And if I were to find myself in that situation, what could I do instead of posting that would prevent me from being injured?
