    Adjustments can be made.

    Hypothetically, if one works the door of a nightclub, there may be the odd occasion where, for example, an adjusted o-goshi can be used.

    The adjustments involve 1) taking the hand that is not grabbing the back of--um--uke's belt and reaching up and across to his douche-greased hair and yanking his head back, and then 2) once you've hoisted, uke to the highest point of the nage, using the latter to guide uke's face wherever you might want it to land. Avoiding his landing on his back might require further adjustments such as dropping a knee to maintain proper face-first trajec-tori, but that will depend on relative sizes and other variables.

    The result (totally inadvertent, of course) is a moron...uh, uke, who gets his face introduced to the tiles (or whatever other surface you accidentally choose).

    It may take a bit of shoulder flexibility to make the hair-grab, and much hand-washing will be needed after, but a facial landing is a possibility.

    Do you know which club the judoka were from?

    Presumably this was Tim [Shears] and the seminar at Kensington Judo Club on Commercial St. (Unless by some peculiar coincidence some other GB black belt held another BJJ seminar at some other judo club just now.)

    see, this is why I don't like most BJJ noobs. they are too concerned with "winning".
