If the feet are too far apart, sometimes uke lands on nage's leg, potentially causing injury to nage's knee via pressure from the outside of the leg while the leg is being used as a support.
That's why you want to shift your weight during the throw from your leg closest to uke, to the other. He won't fall on your leg this way. A swinging motion as explained by John Driscoll Sensei at http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showth...=14306Driscoll .
