Re: landing on my back in forward roll

Probably the best thing you can do is to either arrive at the dojo early or stay late and very slowly and carefully practice your forward rolls and back rolls from kneeling, or seated if necessary. Just be patient and careful, let nage know you have trouble with certain ukemi, and things should get better before too long. Maybe one of the senior students has some specific advice on how you can maintain good form?
Good luck,

-Will
