I don't have the best ukemi in the world, but I am still working on it. Most of my (minor) injuries have been as uke, but the busted nose, I was nage. Ikkyo ura, elbow in the nose. Ouch! Ma'ai is VERY important, people!
ick, I accedently punched my sensei in the nose doing an atemi last week....he said do the atemi with feeling, uke should get out of the way....this was about 10 seconds before I hit him, thankfully no broken nose, no blood but it was a good laugh
