    Yah, I understand that it is circular. And down. It just can be a bit sudden as BKR mentioned.

    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.
