Standard Answer #3: Ask your sensei.

"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."

Weird. Then what part of your body touches the mat first?

It sounds like his body is rotating so fast that instead of hitting the arm, he lands on the shoulder or back first. Am i correct?

there's nothing really WRONG with that. It just means you can rotate your body really quickly, should be good for learning breakfalls.

Jimmy- it sounds like you're kind of doing something between a front roll and a tobi ukemi. Talk to your sensei about it. There are times for both, but make sure you can do what you want to do when you want to do it.

Well as my dojos expert at taking bad rolls I can tell you one thing... if it hurts its wrong ... So does it hurt?

I put my right foot in, I put my left foot out, I do the Aikipokey and throw you all about

Jimmy- landing on your back isn't good. In the beginning, solo ukemi doesn't have enough power or speed to really hurt. But when you get thrown, it's easy to get the wind knocked out of you

I guess it would depend on where and how you are landing. Talk to your sensei or an upper ranked person in your dojo and show them what you do.
