This would be a better fit at fitness.SE.

comment In MMA, should you try to block punches with your glove in the same way you could in Muay Thai?
Jack Slack, noted striking analyst, disagrees: Dipping is bending at the knees while maintaining the stance with the upper body. Weaving is bending at the waist.

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.
