I used to be much more of a nazi about this kind of stuff, but it's not like Omega isn't a competent coach. I don't teach sutemi in our dojo to anyone under 15 usually, and only then if other they are competent at fundamentals and won't be just falling down in front of people because it's easy.Falling for Judo since 1980

The "two footed Tomoe Nage" is a recognized variation in Judo (can't remember the Japanese appellation for it, though). Other times you just use the other foot to catch uke as he tries to turn out of the throw.
LOL, I imagine Omega can come up with plenty of ne waza follow-ons to a failed Tomoe Nage.Falling for Judo since 1980

Just because I'm proud of her. Here's her last year at 10 throwing me if you haven't seen the video. She seems to take to the throws pretty well. I wish I had the one where she threw Yoko Tomoe Nage during a match. I had never shown her the throw.

@Fox and others,
Without the intent to completely derail this thread...
There are more and more fighters going to train in both (Judo and Basically Just Judo) or at least dipping their feet in the water. Have you judo guys seen any changes in rules or interpretation there of? For instance how people let ground game roll or not? (I remember when I dabbled in Judo quite a while back, if you regained guard they reset you even though I wanted to attack further...)

Current judo rules are moving towards allowing more ground work to go. However it has to be active and show progression. If you pull guard either somebody needs to show some success attacking from within that position or the other guy has to show some progression in passing it, otherwise you'll get stood up.
