Another element I would add is that nage is responsible for uke's protection. Becoming aware of uke's ability to handle various levels of force is crucial to preventing injury. Adrenaline and testosterone are bad mixes when it comes to injury. Nage's should remember that everyone's joints have different levels of flexibility and not everyone can handle crushing wrist locks.
