On my first day of class do you think I will imidiatly be getting thrown around? This would be fine except it would always be great to know a little hint or something first about ukemi and how to perform it. I'm almost positive though that they would teach me first. I'm not all to worried about it it's just that it was something to find out.

I think a lot of people go through this same stress. I'll give you this advice though, don't worry, don't think too much.

My wife and I began Aikido one month ago, and I believe you will be studying at Jita Kyoei Dojo in Dallas, correct? We practice at a Jiyushinkai dojo as well (in Baton Rouge, LA), and I hear that Will (one of the instructors at your school) is a simply amazing teacher that really has a passion for teaching Aikido. Anyway, we were a little concerned about ukemi as well, but they really ease you into it. As a beginner, when I take ukemi, I still just find it cool as heck seeing how the techniques work! Just listen to your instructors, learn at your own pace (they all understand you're new), and I promise it will be fun!
On another note, we will be attending Clark Sensei's seminar at your dojo in October! Hope we can meet!
