Hey @kittywalters it's never okay to be physically harmed by another person. Never ever.
I also want to let you know that you have stumbled on an Australian site, so some of the information and support we can give might not be heaps useful as we're a little different to the U.S in a lot of ways.
There's a great place you can go to read a bit more and call someone who can help you decide what to do about what's happening you can find them here. They're great as they can help you decide what to do to feel safe and what to do about the relationship you're in and the physical stuff.

I can tell you 100% that it is not your fault. It is normal to want to comfort someone you care about and he is wrong for physically hurting you, and even more wrong for blaming it on you. You should talk to him seriously about his inability to control himself because there are signs that it could get progressively worse.
Perhaps you should talk to him about taking counselling in regards to his behaviour to help with self-control. You could also suggest trying some techniques to calm down such as taking deep breaths or just to walk away to avoid someone getting hurt.
Please tell me how things go.
Best of luck,
