It happened at our dojo last year as well. One guy jumping up to take ukemi, promptly fell on his face. He'd either broken or badly twisted his ankle, I don't know. Took a long time to heal in any case.

Usually at our testing sessions, it's ok to stick up a hand, one of the teachers on the testing panel will give a nod and then you're allowed to sit cross legged.
