I just attended my first judo class 2 days ago. a question which naturally arose was: In a lot of the throws, it involves you grabbing one of his gi sleeve at the elbow. Take uchi mata for example. if u are throwing him from your right to your front/left, your left hand ideally holds his right at around the elbow. How now, just as a question, will this work in a street fight? his both hands will just continuously try to hit your head and be moving very quickly, as what i see in most video street fights. Catching his elbow seems only slightly easier than catching a punch.
