comment Why is O guruma classified as an Ashi Waza
It's worthwhile to note that the hip is also used in this throw as you are supposed to thrust your hip into uke. You can find videos of Mifune(the guy that made the throw) do this.

comment What are the chances of breaking my nose if I take up a Judo class?
After a year of judo, the thought of breaking my nose hasn't crossed my mind at all. I'd be more worried about fingers, toes, knees, and shoulders.

Yep, he was referring to judo. I never thought of judo as traditional but this solidifies how progressive and non-traditional judo is for me.

In that quote, did Kano refer to judo randori or randori in general? It sounds like he's describing the incorporation of strikes into judo randori. Looking at the date(1926), my mind is blown because that's a major, major change especially since at that point judo had already been around for decades.
