Summary:

• To recover balance the Center of Gravity has to shift in order to reposition it above the Base of Support.
• For small adjustments the action of swinging the arms into the fall causes a reaction that can restore balance.
• Throwing the upper torso in the direction of falling causes a reaction that shifts the CG in the opposite direction.
