Quadrupedal landing, also known as four-point landing, is the act of landing on all four limbs to dampen a drop as much as possible. This movement can be used when falling from a height too far to land with only the feet or when a landing from a jump or trick can't be stuck. There are two ways to execute a quadrupedal landing:
Drop as you normally would, but after the initial contact of the feet, put your hands out in front of you to brace your fall. This is a standard safety tap.
Drop, but land on all fours initially, rather than just two. This is a fairly dangerous method and should be exercised with caution. Land like a cat would.
