Re: Ukemi on plywood?

i've tried rolling on plywood and even on cement, and my left shoulder kinda hurt a bit when it was the first time i did it(actually, it was a forced ukemi, because our sensei commanded us to roll on hard cement...). as for me, it did give an advantage. for example, if you accidentally trip over you can use the ukemi without even having to sacrifice yur face and your skin. sounds a bit shallow but it means a lot to me.
