oh, one last thing, for my fellow females who are more concerned about the 'too easy' nages (my only real complaint is the 'too easy' ukes)...
since i feel my role as uke is to give nage what he/she wants, and if they don't want to throw me, that's their right, i work on my ukemi in three ways: practice rolls/falls by myself, try to grab a partner i know will throw me if it's something i like to fall to (like koshi's), and if all else fails, find someone (male or female) who likes to throw me and just be uke for them before or after class---no one has ever turned me down on an offer to toss me around a bit.
