Same thing happened to me. It is really different when someone drives you onto the mat. I almost broke a clavicle when I was first thrown by a judoka...


I have broken my clavicle ( actually both) from koshi-nage, in aikido. It all depends on when and where you train as to the power,strength and effectiveness of aiki-waza.
