The problem I have with "flying ukemi" is that you sort of have to twist in mid air to get into the right landing position.
I had hoped that the gymnastics fall would eliminate that. (If you don't manage the twist, you kind of land in a flat, crumpled heap)
*Note that I'm specifically asking about falls over things, not out of throws per se.
Hopefully the Waite video (vol 1) will show me some options.
Ps: I was think "Sumi otoshi...you're complaing about sumi-otoshi?". Then I remembered that the aikido version is vastly different than the judo version.
Dang I hate aikido sumi-otoshi ;-) And that entagled arm throw where both your arms are crossed around the crooks of your elbows(jujinage?).
