YES! Read this: aggressive roller skating 101 PDF by RollerGirl, available from

It gave me the instruction and confidence to drop in the first time (youtube vid). I succeeded! Second time I fell on my bum but had crash pants on so it's was ok. I think my body needed to fall to learn not to fall as it did not happen since. I always wear my full derby gear plus crash pants when park skating as it gives me confidence to try out stuff without having to worry about hurting myself.

Good luck!
