I would have to agree with bigduga in that you can't really recreate a fall. When I fell on purpose it didn't hurt. For the most part the falls don't hurt when you have all the gear on.

I have fallen backwards a few times, the absolute worst, and those can hurt. But, when you are working on tight turns or cross overs and lose an edge that doesn't usually hurt all that much.

One of the things I had to get over when I started last year was trying not to fall. Everyone falls, NHLers fall all the time, it happens. As someone else said, if you aren't pushing yourself and getting outside of your comfort zone, you won't make as much progress.
