    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    is uke-otoshi rude?

    We were doing some light randori the other night. I was paired with a lighter partner and threw them with my best effort at uke-otoshi. Later I was told that it was a bit of a dick move to throw someone with uke-otoshi.
    Was I really out of line trying uke-otoshi? Or is it just one of those throws that is above my pay-grade and I should stick to kihon waza.
    I know continually turtling, kicking instead of sweeping, excessive sutemi waza (i.e. any as a n00b), muscling through, pile-driving makikomi etc. are frowned upon but I hadn't put uki-otoshi on my black list. Is it considered to sutemi-waza like?

    Were you doing Judo, Jujutsu or Aikido at the time ?

    You seriously threw somebody with uke-otoshi? I would be too busy applauding to complain.

    Dude, were you gluing mats back together today?

    If so it might have been me that implied that uki-otoshi is a dick move. I don't think it's a dangerous or painful move, it's that I think that if you get thrown by it you have just been well and truly owned (as the kids say these days).

    So when I said "Oh my god, I can't believe you just did that", it was genuine disbelief that you managed to pull it off.

    By the way, do you want me to post the picture of it?

    This. I've only ever seen it work once in randori. I've tried it myself, and for all my weight and strength, I was left looking like a tit.

    Did you actually throw them with Uki otoshi or did you just do a twist down with your hands?

    If someone actually threw someone with a proper Uki Otoshi I would probably buy them a pint.

    I don't know if it was text book, but here's a photo of the entry. (**** privacy.)

    The girl took a fairly spectacular flip straight after this, but I didn't get a follow up shot as I was so shocked.

    You didn't say it was on a girl, that doesn't count.

    Looks pretty standard to me, I guess someone looking on could think it was dickish to throw a girl like that, because they might think you were just 'throwing' her around without control.

    I guess someone could also think that they could land face first if you lost control or they didn't roll.

    But, meh, certainly rather people use that than a Makikomi.
