Juji-nage....what's your most feared fall on the tatami...
Jujinage is up there, but not because of hang time. I don't like the feeling of not being able to escape a dangerous situation and when UKE sinks the entanglement well, I'm completely at his/her mercy. If they really crank the technique, it could mean a broken elbow very quickly.

One that's come to scare me is the occassional TAI OTOSHI or HARAI GOSHI for the danger they put my knee in. Sometimes NAGE affects KUZUSHI well enough, but has trapped the leg leaving my knee barred on their thigh or back as they crank me against it.

MEN NAGE is another scary one.
