I voted for back fall but, I personally will do a forward roll depending on how tired my knees are. The back fall takes up less room on a crowded mat and is easier to teach to beginners.
Yes, me, too.
But it's not always a matter of choice. Well, done, TN can launch you. With beginners, I do the back roll because they're still fretting over where the foot goes and I wait for their technique to catch up with my attack. More advance players just take your momentum and you fly.
