    Your signature really irritates me.

    i personally could have done without the dubstep in the background.

    uchimata is a satisfying throw to pull off, but i've only ever hit it once in live training.

    Sean from the BJJ Kumite said Matt Maldonado was a dick to him so I said, "maybe you just weren't his type?". Somehow that constitutes an "offensive rape joke". Hardly worthy of a yellow card. :rolleyes:

    "Offensive joke" is an oxymoron. Humor is a necessity!

    Watching the video on broadband to the sound track of a dial up modem must be some kind of irony, right?

    While I love the throws... I find it annoying that a good 40% of the ones shown in the video end up on the bottom after the throw. Doesn't that slightly limit the practical application if they can use your momentum and end up on top of you?

    Btw, agree with the comments on the music. WHY?

    The problem is with people training throws to win competitions. Over-committing to Uchi Mata is more likely to get the score but likely to get you rolled. Uchi Mata is one of my favorite throws and I never end up on the bottom or roll over with it because I learned it to be useful in BJJ and a real fight primarily, not to score in a Judo tournament - you have to commit to the throw but not over-commit. The problem is with the lax criteria for ippon, it used to be that the throw had to be very controlled (tori ending standing over uke or on top on the ground) to score ippon but for some reason this has been relaxed and so we see these silly rolling through ippons. If you watch old Judo videos you almost never see judoka rolling through or ending on the bottom following a throw.

    no i'm about 6'1". personally i think my set-up for the throw is too slow and my leg positioning feels off.

    I pull this throw off all the time on 14yr old white belts, and it's ace.
