At my last seminar, we were practacing Shihonage and my Nage decided that he would cut by rotating my arm instead of down my spine, i tried pulling in but to no avail hello pain...

Fortunatly it wasnt Torn, (thank the goddess)and after ten minutes of missing some really kewl Jo techniques and doing some gentle stretches i joined in again it was painfull to fall on but none the less i carried on still doing full ukemi for some pretty nasty moves (just mostly on my other shoulder) i felt confident not to do myself any more injuries etc... and my shoulder has healed nicely and i now enjoy full aikido.

must say tho that ukemi is the bit that realy knackeres you out! all that falling and getting up, after all being nage means using no strength.
