    Good news, Judo weenies. Pop a squat next to ol GB and let him learn ya: Replace that grip on the lapel with an overhook or an underhook.

    Congratulations, most if not all of your hip throws now work on t3h str33t.

    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.

    Any reason more than just because he's him?

    I'm not Greese, but I would personally prefer not to use a fireman's carry because:

    A.) It involves lowering your level, which is not something I really want to do in a "street" self defense situation. That includes going to the ground.

    B.) You could possibly bust your knees pretty good on the ground, an injury that is less likely to occur with a different takedown.

    C.) You could potentially expose your back.

    Whoever said that the most practical throw is the one that fits the situation you're in is correct. There are certainly throws that are on the far end of credible practicality (tani otoshi strikes me as a fairly impractical throw, for instance). This question has a lot more gray than black and white.

    Actually, it is O soto gari is the most winning throw. And countering O soto gari with o soto gari is impossible in judo terminology.
