If you're asking this question then no, you should not.
Rolkur is not something to be played with lightly. Although I 100% don't feel that it is at all necessary to jam a horses head into its chest and make its nose become nearly parallel with the ground in rolkur, I do see and use the benefits of some work of low, deep and round (the true version in which the horse is ridde n very softly forward into a deeper outline to work different muscle groups, and occasionally to bring a spooky or naughty horses brain back into fear).
In either option, you need to be an experienced rider with a good feel. The fact that you asked this questions tells me that you are not.

My advice, get yourself a good instructor rather than trying to copy risky techniques to shortcut your mates training.

It could be a good way to ruin your horse.

Ditto everything that kayty said!

If you don't know enough about it to answer this question for yourself, you don't know enough about it to be considering using it.

I don't know a thing about it so I just wiki'd it....

There is a ban against it. Seems to be a dark gray area and quite controversial so why would you consider it?

Rolkur is the culmination of a lengthy process over a few years. As with everything else there are always those who attempt shortcuts.
