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.

comment How do you choose which judo techniques to practice? (tokuiwaza)
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?

comment What can I do to improve my squat for judo throws during randori?
Thanks so much for a wonderfully detailed answer... I guess I'll be looking for some weights on eBay!! :-)

comment What can I do to improve my squat for judo throws during randori?
I didn't even think of flexibility in my back... I'm a software developer and sit in a chair all day... so my posture/lower back aren't great - I'll give that a try as a starting point - thanks so much!

@MatthChan Thanks for your help Matt - I'm used to using stack overflow, where asking technical, direct questions is imho much easier :)
