    Please tell me you don't actually believe that.
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    I'd say it depends on who the person is like a lot of other people have been saying. I"m really tall so I don't have much of a use for something like Morote Seoi-nage whereas someone who's short does. Likewise, I find sweeps and anything else that uses my long legs to be great throws for me. But, I'd have to say the throws that I see most often in competition videos would be Uchi-mata and O-soto-gari.

    koshi guruma... btw, what the hell do we mean by "practical"? What makes a throw more practical to another? In comps, in self-defense situations????

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Most practical: sukui nage.

    Unless the other person's wearing shorts; then you're fucked.

    When wrestling heavyweight, my favorite was a hip throw while fighting for a bearhug. When the heavyweights started pummelling to counter the bearhug, I'd keep one arm tucked tight against my body, so that when my opponent got his other arm down to break the bearhug, he practically giftwrapped the throw for me. Step through and toss them over the hip if you feel mean, shoot through and take them to the ground (and an easy pinning position) if you feel nice.

    Seriously though, most practical throw for what? It entirely depends on which direction the guy is moving and the grip I've managed to get.
    Are you saying that the situation, and not the practicioner, determines the strategy?
