gee, can i ever relate...my first sensei told me that you wouldn't get dizzy if you alternated (ie, left roll, right roll, left roll, etc) and that seemed to work (power of suggestion?) then i got to a place that you had to roll one side only across the mat...before i could roll back on the other side the mat was moving all over the place. gave the rest of the class a good laugh, and a rest while they waited for me to struggle back. i complained one day that rolling two mat lengths like that made me too dizzy for the first 5 minutes of class, and my instructor then had us roll FOUR mat lengths instead. i moved and changed dojos, but kept that in mind and each night did four mat lengths of small rolls for a year...and you know what, i'm no longer dizzy
