Also I cannot do even a forward somersault will I be able to learn how to roll? Is a roll in aikido the same as a somersault?
Rolling is not like a somersault, but it's not completely different either. You roll straight, but your head never touches the ground when you go over. You go over your shoulder instead. But if I
could learn to do forward rolls, I assure
you that you can.
