also is there a way to practice ukemi before i go into the dojo so i wont make an ass outta myself??? or should i wait for someone to show me the right way?
You should probably try to arrive 10-15 minutes before class on a regular basis and ask someone experienced (such as the instructor) to help you learn to fall. If that's not possible, try to stay 10-15 minutes after class to get help..

You'll learn in no time. It took me about 6 months, but I'm a slow student.
