Actually we were playing with this again the other day and I think I've found another reason why beginners are the main culprit. It seems to be a result of moving nervously, trying to "fit in" and avoid being hurt. I was spinning out of peoples shiho nage when I was taking a very passive dance like approach as uke. As soon as I changed my mindset and kept my intent and focus on attacking uke (even without a physical follow up attack), no more spinning out.
