I never really had many problems with ukemi, I was one of those sick people that liked it, but then again I fit into the young male demographic ( We have no regard for personal safety ).

We only have 4 female students in our class, but they are the highest ranked kyu grades (and the best), We've just got a bunch of new students including a couple of girls but I havent had the opportunity to train with them much, so im not sure what they think of ukemi. I'll have a chat with them tommorrow night, see what they say, they seem pretty committed though ( Bought their Gi after their first lesson, so enthusiastic!).

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.
