Unhappy hip throws

Hi everyone!
~~At my dojo we seem to go through bouts of working on koshi and O goshi naga but I've never really seen anyone give clear, safe instruction on how to take a fall from these techniques. I came to Aikido from an art with many throws and have no problem with it, but wince watching other students do all sorts of risky contortions and falls.
~~As instructors, how do you present ukemi for these full throws? As students, how were you instructed to take these falls? I have taught such ukemi in my previous school but hold no position in my current dojo and would like to find a way to get this material presented. Or is it usually a wing-it as you learn in Aikido?
~~Thanks!

~~Paula~~
