I've been training only for a few months and, though I absolutely love Aikido, I have some problems. Up to very recently, I thought I had got those forward rolls more or less right. Still, I occasionally felt a bit of back pain after training. Last Thursday, we did udekime nage at the dojo, and I failed to do the ukemi right constantly. I asked sensei to show me, and, with him guiding me, I somewhat managed it, but I still have problems. Would you people mind sharing how you do forward rolls and how you learned to do them? I'm particularly interested in how you control your legs and hands during the roll, and at what moment and where does your BACK connect with the mat.
Thanks very much,
