 From that message:

--------------------------------
[De'vID]:
Can {ron} be used for people, such as in martial arts or gymnastics?

[Okrand]:
Yes... IF it means that the person is rolling haphazardly.

If the person is doing a somersault (rolling forwards or backwards in a
reasonably controlled manner), the verb is {Hay}.

If the person is rolling down a hill as if he/she were a log, the verb
is {tetlh} (related to the noun meaning "scroll," though it's not used
for scrolls... unless a scroll is rolling down a hill).
