    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

    Thanks Greece and DCS, ruining my old Judo dreams again. You guys didnt have the judo coach who yelled "The counter to O-Soto-Gari is O-Soto-Gari"?

    Still like the throw - though highest percentage for gi-competition is probably elnyka's avatar: uchi-mata.

    Wise words, indeed.

    Go Rin No Sho teaches not to prefer any one weapon over another. To die with a weapon undrawn is stupid.

    I just realized that I'm likely to be within a couple hours drive from you next winter. I must keep this information in mind.

    All that hard athletic training, all that sparring against Judoka who are on both State and National teams. It's all useless.

    Why the **** didn't you tell me this before ? !!!!

    Judo is useless on the street because it is 'the gentle way', whereas the street is rough. Also, you don't wear a gi on the street. Simple.

    Well, I wear mine, but all the street thugs don't. Many I time have I attempted a simple hiza garuma and found myself snatching in vain at a t-shirt. Once they counter with a street variant of seoi-nage, I am doomed.
