Re: Teaching front rolls

Actually, I'd suggest looking over your off-side shoulder. Two reasons:
1. that pulls you around more, so that the "track" of the roll is over the shoulder-blade (meat) rather than shoulder (rotator cuff).
2. It's more congruent from a martial standpoint. At minimum, you are looking back at the person you attacked you, and it leads you naturally into a position for kaeshi-waza.
