I have been blessed with never having hurt or been hurt seriuosly while in practice. Not to say there arent some strains and lumps, but I have never encountered an extreme injury. All you can do is be mindful of sorroundings and the level of aptitude your nage has.

Inuries will happen, but attentive practice usually stays off severve injuries

Dont make me, make you, grab my wrist.

I have seen only a few injuries: One friend had his collar bone broken when he was visiting a dojo and the instructor threw him without letting his arm go so he could roll out of it (he landed on the shoulder); instructor was a 3rd dan too. I saw a early kyu rank break a collar bone when she did not roll properly (her fault-she was taught). I had my wrist injured by an instructor on an ego trip that day (he apologized to me a year later)-he knew I was a chiropractor and cranked a sankyo on me (they work by the way) that tore the ligaments in my wrist. It hurt so bad all I could do was sit on the edge of the mat and hold my wrist (hurt to my neck). Wrist is still not right. Perhaps the learning point is to watch out for 3rd dans-they calm down after they get 4th. Just kidding.
