um... are u talking about BACKFALLS or back 'rolls'?
Yoshinkan is a bit different to most other styles of Aikido in this.
The backroll they are talking about is where they roll over the shoulder in a "vertical" circle (sort of like a forward roll in reverse), where we usually do that 180 degree horizontal pivot on our back/shoulder blade.
Not the best description, but there you go...
