...My Nage hangs on providing some support but I end up taking the brunt of the force on my side (Side of leg then hip and arm at the same time).

My question is should I be controlling my fall so that I come down arm and feet first (if possible) then back? Am I making sense?

Any tips would be appreciated.

Also any tips for practicing softer Ukemi in general would be appreciated ...
Now take all the suggestions that have been made and try to logically fit them into how they would work in a fall like this one....
