Rolling out ot kaitennage

I'm having difficulty rolling from kaitennage without hurting myself, I just keep smashing my back on the mat. I used to get hurt being thrown into front rolls because I was so nervous about rolling but now I enjoy it, so it was a bit of a surprise to me when doing this technique last class that I hurt myself. I kept trying to adjust the way I was rolling but not much seemed to help. Does anyone else have problems rolling from kaitennage? I can sometimes manage a decent roll when sensei throws me and once or twice with my husband but most of the time it is rather painful. Anyone have any ideas?


I find the aquisition of knowledge to be relatively easy, it is the application that is so difficult.
