Re: Koshinage Ukemi

Late to the party, but fwiw...I learned a little judo before beginning aikido, and for years I was more comfortable with breakfalls than rolls. I never ended up with bleeding scapula from breakfalls, and the carpet under that damned right front part of the DC dojo was thinner or separated or something and always cut my shoulder.

(And yes, Unpronounceable One, I know that doesn't happen when the roll is done right.
