 8)  Sounds like tuckin i have the same troubles with dive rolls.  Watch some good tuts.  start from a crouched or amost nealing possion. Then go through the movements.

Then, i was talking to Demon about rolling and he said that i needed to try it on concrete to see how my form felt to me and it felt great except for the fact that i hit my shoulder....and sugestions on how to tuck more?
