Re: Slight Ukemi problem

Skip breakfalls until nage actually throws you. When we do jujigarame I usally end up doing a back/sidefall rather than a breakfall unless nage is doing a really good throw. And when nage actually throws then the breakfall is easy.

Getting over the need to do fancy ukemi to crappy waza is a good starting point for safe practice.
