comment Defending against an aggressive and heavier opponent
@JulianKról As for not liking the clinch...the only options here are: convince them to stop, knock them out, run, or clinch. I don't like the odds on going for the knockout. Running is kind of outside the scope of the question. Convincing them to stop by wearing them out or leg kicking them is viable, but involves a lot of risk while in the striking range.

It happens. The throw happens to work well with me; other throws work better for other people. But all judo throws are meant to work against bigger, stronger opponents if you get good at them.

I learn something every day, I suppose. I wonder, as you do, if they mean vale tudo/MMA fighter or just a sport competitor? I wonder how they define sport competitor—must they be currently active? Weird stuff.

I've never heard of this. That's not to say it's not true in some organization or lineage, of course, but to my knowledge there's no fighter/instructor difference.

comment In MMA, should you try to block punches with your glove in the same way you could in Muay Thai?
@Vass Slipping is turning and moving laterally out of the way of a punch, the bob+weave is ducking under and coming back up: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boxing_styles_and_technique#Defense

comment How to deal with unfair judges
I solved a similar problem by quitting karate and competing in tournaments where such corrupt judging is harder. In my case it was judo and BJJ, but boxing and kickboxing, where you actually hit, knock out, and knock down the opponent, would work too. I don't see how asking the judge is going to make anything better.
