Re: One-handed ukemi
When learning proper rolls from standing it is helpful to build up to standing gradually from kneeling. If you can do a roll with one knee on the ground, by extending the arm that makes contact with the ground so far underneath that your shoulder nearly makes contact with the ground, and then slowly transition to rolls that begin further and further away from the shoulder (with knees still bent but not all the way down) eventually to standing, it will be a smooth progression. If you do this and find the point in the progression where things start to go wrong, you can see very specifically what is happening.
