Hey Paul!!

Welcome! Never ever worry about doing things wrong...I've been studying for 2 1/2 years and I still manage to do some sort of ukemi wrong and never ever do I go home unconfused....even on nights where its just a test! Have a GREAT day!!!

Hi Paul,

Welcome from Nashville, Tn. Ukemi is an art unto itself :) and at 5 weeks you are definitely still getting a feel for it. It will come in time. If you are getting a lot of stress in your shoulders from techniques being applied or falls/rolls where you are landing too hard you might ask your nage to slow down a little when you are training so that you don't get injured.

Try ukemi from a kneeling position with one leg up, holding a tanto with both of your hands in front of you (not in a position where one hand is closer to you than the other).

Good luck!!
