Not trying to take anything away from your ukemi skills, but, I'd venture to say you have a pretty good sensei. Most falls from that high cause at least a little discomfort when you first learn to take them.
Yes, I have a great sensei! I realize I'm still a rank amateur, and there's no way I could take that sort of fall in a situation even SLIGHTLY resembling full speed and full intent. I'm giddy, but I'm not dillusional.
