hey matthew,

as joseph said you're not alone, i'm the one who started the "Need advice for my newbie self" thread because i messed up my left shoulder doing one of my first forward rolls....i'm talking everyone's advice and doing like you're doing just watching out for my left shoulder being sure to tell nage to be gentle on that side and compenstating with a backfall or just not doing it at all.

btw i was wondering if any of us newbies with left shoulder injuries are right hand dominant and therefore lack significant confidence when useing our left sides....i find this to be the case for me being that i have to focus a little more when using my left side both as nage and as uke...just a thought...
