comment Learning not to turn your back on ground?
If it's not perfect you can try slipping your hands through his arms, or the parts he's using to strangle you. From there on out you can widen your elbows and use your own arms like a crowbar to loosen his grip.

When a choke is performed correctly, it's pretty much impossible to get out of it with anything other than pure strength. Best way to defend against them is to put your chin on your throat.

comment What can I do to improve my squat for judo throws during randori?
"To thow your opponent harder, decrease momentum while your opponent is falling". I don't think everyone understands what she means by this. It's the same as the whiplash effect. You move the whip up, and pull it back down rapidly, creating a strong whiplash. The same happens in Judo. When your opponent is near the ground, you pull him back and he hits the ground like a whiplash. This doesn't require any strength since you simply rotate his body to create the whiplash. That's redirection, not use of force.

Krav Maga is based on Ninjutsu, actually. Which is an art of assassination and infiltration.

I completely agree with this. In our dojo we learn to throw using technique, and we test this by throwing someone twice our size or twice our weight. When you use the right technique you'll have no trouble throwing a way larger person at all. I am 6'2" and I weigh 59 kilograms. Using the technique I was taught I easily throw someone of 6'11" weighing more than 100 kilograms. And I don't feel it in my legs at all.

comment Judo za-rei difference between man and woman
The reason for modernizing the greeting is because the Seiza is mostly uncomfortable for European/American practitioners, since they are often not used to the Seiza since young ages. This means that their joints are not flexible enough to sit correctly. The reason for the difference between man and woman in modern European/American practitioners regarding the closing of the legs is because Europe and America are more set on seperating male and female. This has been the case for many things. In Japan however, you are treated the same in martial arts since a student is a student.

These are the traditional rules, but the rules may vary depending on the dojo. Some dojo's decided to modernize and have their own greeting, but in the dojo I train we honour the traditional rules.
