    LOL, yeah, you can do the same thing in Judo. My instructor came back from a big training camp in the mid '80s and said stepping on uke foot was all the rage. He figured out a counter to it, though, and severly strained a few knees at the training camp of the guys who thought it was a cute move.

        It doesn't seem very wise from a Judo standpoint to rest your leading foot weight on your opponents toes...seems like a good way to feed a sweep or throw if they know what to do. Like BKR said, cute move but a good judoka should know how to use opponents force applications against them, especially the legs/feet, right?

          He would bend his knee and hook his own knee around the guys knee from the outside, and push in with his knee/body weight. If he was really pissed, he would do a sort of Kosoto Gake at the same time.

          I have not done this counter in a long time, as I've not run into anyone who purposely steps on feet anymore.

            Like I said, I have not seen this sort of move (stepping on foot on purpose) in a long time.

            It was used to pin the weight on uke foot to "set up" another throw, to slow uke down or make him stumble if moving. More of a surprise move than anything else.

            Dickish all the same, as the potential for knee/ankle injury is pretty high.
