    Clearly he's lifting his big toe to defend against pressure point knockouts. Duh.

    The only reason I see people lift a big toe whilst curling the little toes under is in preparation for a yoko-geri- a side kick. It helps you turn your foot a bit more so you strike with the blade of the foot. What he's doing there though, I don't know how the hell he is even doing that or why.

    Forgive the ignorance, but is it customary for university clubs to be open to the public? Cuz West Point has a judo club in my area. Hmmmm...

    What's up with all these colorful Gi's? Is this an western custom to wear a red Gi with high possibility of breaking at the seems when thrown? If anyone in Japan wore this, it would only be a satirical comedy on TV and never in a Dojo.

    I don't know, I think that's some sorta TKD dress uniform or something anyway. I just... I have never seen that. I've seen a Judo guy in a robin's egg blue Gi, but other than that all I see is white cotton or cotton/poly, and occasionally black.

    It's like feathers a a peacock or something. Nice colourful uniform to attract attention, people might think he's got the ultimate MA because he dresses differently. Just a thought.

    Ah yes, peacocks- beautiful plumage, little tiny head! Or perhaps I should say, all show, no substance.

    But perhaps a tasty snack...
