It seems that most injuries in dojos are by far due to Uke crashing into eachother rather that nage inflicting injury on Uke.

My own injuries confirm the statistics as recently during a throw I landed on someone already on the mat, who received my heel directly on the face. On another occasion, while on the mat, someone just did tenkan into my left kidney and it was very painful and swollen for a few weeks.

So in this respect, it is nage's responsibility to make sure he throws Uke into a safe area, but more often than not, adrenaline rush takes control and Uke is thrown carelessly.

Cheers,
Edward
