I really dont think
anyone expects non-aikido people to do graceful rolls if they wind up on the business end of a technique. The idea there is that you get them away from you, hopefuly in a manner that wont wind up with either you or them hurt. The rolls and graceful falls are specificaly for OUR benifit so we dont get hurt when our partners are practicing said techniques on us(as well as to train us to fall safely in case we take a tumble for any other reason).
