He's got a couple of videos out too, in case you want to see the break down of breakfalls.(www.tenzanaikido.com or www.seattleholisticcenter.com).
I've seen one...picked up some really good tips from it. I'd recommend it. Oh, also, if you can make it to the ukemi seminar do that...did I mention that already

His method sounds similar to what Bronson described above
My sensei has a judo background and that's where he got most of the drills/exercises. I'm sure others have had similar training.

I suspect you're confusing a breakfall with a roll
Rolling doesn't seem to be where the difficulty lies, it's in break falling.
