This blog entitled "Psychology of Self Care: Aikido as a tool for reflection" provides us with Susan Harrow's thoughts on how aikido provides her with a way for self-reflection.
From the article: "One Nage (the thrower or attacker) in particular is rough and strong. A few weeks ago he cracked every bone in my hand doing Nikyo. [...] Of course my first instinct is to resist when he pulls me too hard, but I know intellectually that I can be hurt more easily, but my body tries to protect me."

Just read the whole thing.
Criminy. My take after the second time would be "Look since you cannot slow down and stop cranking me and stepping on me, I will not train with you." and bow out and find another partner. His need to learn these things does not require that I sacrifice my well being.
