comment What can I do to improve my squat for judo throws during randori?
Two years and much more competitive experience later, I can see that you're absolutely right :) Of course, strength can help when the technique isn't quite right (let's be honest, how many people get their technique perfect every time!!?)... but your point stands.

comment Why are traditional karate gi's white?
You're right, it's death (hence the "willingness to die in battle" and seppuku comment), the purity part must have been a figment of my (western) imagination.

Thanks very much. I also found this blog post which supplemented your reply nicely. :)

Very true, but that's still not an answer to the question asked.

Thanks for your answer, but it strikes me that the question was how to decide which throw(s) to practice [see the title], not which throws to use in randori/comp and/or how to use them ... see what I mean?
