    That's not what that is... He's applying a Judo Mak to the foot. Almost like a krotty Dim Mak but done with Judo flair. :eusa_thin

    Why doesn't the guy with the knife stab the toe holder in the leg? Oh wait, I'm stating the obvious. Damn.

    Cite your reference, please.

    Who are the performers?

    What you show is not technically part of the formal judo curriculum - it's not from the Gokyo or any of the kata. The closest thing to a real judo technique is the takedown - it looks like, but isn't, kani-basami. Most likely, it's just something that somebody made up for a demo.

    You're stretching to call it judo knife defense - the actual defenses are quite different.

    Yeah, that move isn't very good, nor do I recognize it in my Kodokan Judo book. I suppose he should've just went for the single leg and then pulled guard on the knife wielder though.

    Yes, guard is the ultimate defense against a knife.

    Yeah, you can do better than that Aesop. This is some weak **** right here, and I know I've never seen this **** before.

    So, from all the historical clips in that hour long - made-for-French-TV - documentary, you chose a 5-second filler to start a thread on.

    One, unlike pretty much all the others, has no title or reference information in the voice-over. It looks like is was chosen to add some visual impact to an otherwise simple and visually unappealling commentary by Gailhat on the attraction of judo to scientists.

    Good choice.

    Dakota-judo - It sounds like you know the DVD - apart from the knife defense clip, is it worth having?
