~~I must agree with Kevin W. here as I, too, see a good part of the problem relating back to nage. We need to educate both partners better, throwing and taking the fall. Also seeing hip throws routinely sprinkled into every class like any other technique, not jammed on every so often to where people are frightened, exhausted or injured by doing something 'so different' (or simply sitting out). If it's in the system of training then use it; if it's a passing interest don't waste everyone's time and energy~~
