Is it fall forward and jump back?

It most likely depends on what sort of league you're playing with, alot of those sort of rules vary from league to league. I'm not sure about professional volleyball, but I imagine if you can black or return the ball, then it's fine. I know personally that in my highschool league it's been allowed since Volleyball started, same in majority of middle school leagues I've helped coach. If you're unsure and you're playing in a league, if you talk to your coach, I'm sure they can tell you.

Hope that helps!

9.2.1 The ball may touch any part of the body.
9.2.2 The ball must not be hit, caught and/or thrown. It
can rebound in any direction.
9.2.3 The ball may touch various parts of the body, provided
that the contacts take place simultaneously.
Exceptions: At blocking, consecutive contacts may be
made by one or more blocker(s), provided
that the contacts occur during one action. At the first hit of the team, the ball may
contact various parts of the body consecutively,
provided that the contacts occur
during one action.

Playing the ball below the waist has been allowable for some time now. Originally when they allowed play below the waist your feet were required to remain in contact with the floor. That has since changed and contact with any part of the body is allowed.
