Rolling is not a problem. I train japanese jujutsu in my free time, and there's lots of roll practice - including parkour style distance and height leaps/rolls. It's not the dismount I'm afraid of, it's the momentum. I have a small apartment, and if I were to roll out of a handstand, I imagine lots of stuff will get broken

I'm thinking of using a hallway so if I lose my balance, I can support myself on the opposing wall if I lose balance
