You guys are correct in that when done correctly this is not a terribly dangerous throw. Maybe it was just my beginner's ineptitude with this throw in particular, but I have only injured training partners with throw. (years ago) It may just be a random anecdote, but since we are in the Basics forum, I thought it was worth mentioning.

Absolutely worth mentioning, as it points out it's not a beginners version of Uchi Mata. Of course, Uchi Mata is not a beginners throw, so go figure.Falling for Judo since 1980
