    This video would get way more hits if Kate Upton was the Uke.

    That is actually a Kyokushin form, albeit somewhat unrecognizable.

    Uh, it's a common practice in "real" krotty dojos and relatively safe because of the manner in which it is a controlled throw. At the shorin-ryu dojo I trained at they "threw" each other on the floor all the time. They aren't full force judo throws, dude. I don't like to do it, but this is kind of what people mean when they talk about krotty being cruel. Foot sweeps are way more common on the hardwood floor. I assume these are floors with some spring to them. I was kind of suprised when my sensei hip-threw me on the floor for the first time.

    oh okay that clears it up a bit. I guess I was just assuming any throws would be actual like, throws where I see dudes get slammed on the ground like in Judo or something. I don't do that many throws vOv

    I am going to give you an example of complete fail when it comes to throwing on wood floors first.

    Now here is the proper way to handle it.



    From my experience the part of the body in most danger is usually the ankle bone, which impacts directly on the floor and gets maximum force unless you and the uke are working together properly. Which is exactly what happened to the dude in video number one.

    Now I actually don't see this as a best practice. I'm just saying it's common and doesn't mean it's a mcdojo. I believe the best practice is to 1) be properly trained and 2) use the best equipment available. Namely mats, and thick ones. Which will still be state of the art hundreds of years from now....
