Yesterday's class was the first class in a long time where I needed to do front ukemi and I think I did relatively well. It didn't hurt that my wife, now my sempai at gokkyu, was my nage. I can't remember the name of the technique, but it's the one where you hold uke's hand and put your other arm under their arm, lift up and throw down. Wheeee! At least I didn't get hurt and I think a few of my rolls were decent. I think after a few thousand more times I'll begin to get the hang of it.
