comment What's the difference between Krav Maga and Urban Krav Maga?
Presumably Urban Krav Maga cannot be done while wearing wellies ;-}

It's called Ogoshi in judo too (judo is essentially a subset of JJ)

+1 for "this is probably a problem with missing the off-balancing portion", I was going to write an answer to that effect until I read that part of your answer.

comment Maximizing Liver Shot Damage
Seems silly to put that on hold to me, it's about a specific attack and how best to optimise it... At worst, edit it slightly. Just disabling it is very unhelpful and not encouraging to someone who is clearly new. Smh

@Sardathrion why not outline what it depends on? As to how useful an answer may or may not be... beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Or modern judo has moved on... I've only been doing judo 6 years :)

Good point about the belts, I hadn't considered that - though females I know always wear plain black belts just like the males.

comment Do any martial arts have mixed gender competitions?
I see, thanks. In terms of research, I mean outcomes for men vs women in whatever the particular (martial arts based) competitive environment may be: much the same as boys vs girls are compared in academic environments (girls win!)

comment Do any martial arts have mixed gender competitions?
Interesting - I wonder if anyone has done any research on the outcomes of these competitions. Does an exhibition match count as competition? (I'm not sure I know what an "exhibition match" is really - not trying to be antaganistic)

@DnrDevil reasonable point - I'll just remove the first paragraph, then it is an answer.

Are there any sport-based martial arts that aren't segregated? Think that might be a whole new question :)

@Sardathrion If I was born a female, would I have a different chance of success at a martial arts competition.

I agree with all your points, but what if you're in a sport where you're not allowed to fight/compete with members of the opposite sex?

@DaveLiepmann I'm trying to get at the direct impact of gender on competitive potential... can you please advise / edit? Sorry, not trying to be confusing.
