I can understand that. Thai leg-kicked a guy one time and I was zigging when he was zagging apparently and it blew out his knee. Super-creepy, indeed. Later on in the debrief we sort of collectively figured out he was trying to switch up his feet and ended up putting his full weight on it right as the kick came dropping in.I have broken a guys arm in a lock once. It is super creepy.
In thinking about @CB Jones comment about things getting broken... there was that tread a while back about the doorman who hit a guy who swung on him, guy fell, either offbalanced or knocked out -- it was unclear from the write-up, the guy fell and cracked his skull when he hit the curb. Environmental after-effects of techniques can be worse than the techniques themselves.
I've dropped guys using foot sweeps, floating hip throws which sort of got put together on the spot, etc., but I'm easing them down tot he ground. Probably good for them as most clubs have stone or tile floor to make clean up easier.... Can you imagine really blasting into one of the big throws and throwing the guy "through the mat" like we do in competition? Sheesh...
