    I don't know about dickish, but judging by her posture and his plus his completely bent right arm there isn't any uki-otoshi going on there, just a rough approximation that likely only happened due to the size/strength difference.

    thanks for the replies

    in review:
    *What I did probably wasn't really uki-otoshi (like all my n00bish throws)
    *uki-otoshi is not a high percentage technique
    *there aren't any particular reasons to not use it compared to other low percentage techniques that you can only pull off when height, weight, gender, etc. are to your advantage


    @CrackFox Yes, I'm the glue-totting white belt. Small world, I didn't know you were here. I'm cool with the pic of my attempted judo going up.
    D didn't seem any worse for wear after it at the time, but I'll stick to training more standard throws next time.
    Thanks for clearing that up for me, I don't want to become "that guy" on the mats who does dick-ish things.

    @Rock Ape: judo at the time

    @judoka_uk: since I can't do any decent judo yet, so I'll say a dropping twist down.

    @Juggernoob: I kept it 1-for-1, taking a fall for every throw. girl = lighter partner. I keep gender considerations to a minimum on the mat. I'll avoid using a tit as a handle but if they want to train I'll train with them. My question was more about the throw in general, rather than this particular attempt at it.

    @DCS: even had a ushiro tenkan lead up

    The mats in the college club are picked up and put down every day (aikido and judo share the same mats). Wear and tear means the rubber is starting to come off the bottom of some of them. I'm trying out some different glue on one of the mats that has been retired to see if I can re-attach the rubber to the vinyl. If it works on the retired mat I'll do some maintenance on the ones we're still using.
    CrackFox had just been talking to me about the glue a few minutes before he saw this thread, so it was an easy way to check if it was me (there's a lot of Kevin's in the world, so name wouldn't have been enough).
