I couldn't take high falls for about to years because of an injury.
This never happened to be a problem when practicing in other dōjō or attending seminars. I even did my nidan examination during this time and was also uke of a fellow examinee.
All this while practicing a line of aikidō that emphasizes high falls very much (see videos of Endo or Tissier sensei)
I don't know whether not taking high falls is the only reason you don't visit other dōjō. But if so, I think you don't have to restrain yourself.
