Roll of the week, #6 – Crook of elbow roll

Imagine you have your right hand full with food (fish, seal, narwhal, you name it). Then you get knocked over. One approach to a one handed roll with a paddle is the butterfly roll. Another approach is this week’s roll of the day, rolling with the paddle held in crook of elbow. This technique allowed hunters to learn to roll with one hand full, and still use some power from both arms. This roll could also be used if you had injured one of your hands.

If you are looking for roll #5, sorry, somehow that one got lost during my last trip. It was however the “Butterfly Roll” which you can view using this link.
