Re: 5kyu test

Yeah. That's hard when you can't practice at the dojo. If you can learn to roll well enough to do *OK* at them, you can at least practice them on you own, maybe on soft grass, or a carpeted area. I did a lot of practicing in my living room. You might try wearing a heavy jacket at first - sort of like a mat, for padding. Start on your knees - don't go diving at the ground right from the beginning. Be patient, and work slowly. Your body will get the idea.
