comment does judo come to the power without judoga
The power in real judo comes from the opponent's momentum and body weight, what they are wearing is not relevant. A proficient judoka will adapt to the situation at hand - as pointed out below, it's a question of applying the fundamentals of balance, leverage and timing - not clothing.

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.
