Only the last paragraph is meaningful. The rest is opinionated ranting.

comment How to adapt kote hineri against a larger opponent?
Are you asking how to make Kote Hineri work for different body sizes, or are you asking how to accomodate different body sizes in general?

comment Who was the first female judoka?
I suspect that these questions are probably more accurate to ask on a history stackexchange, although your first aside would probably make a great set of questions on here. The second aside might be better off on some sociological stackexchange.. :)

@DaveLiepmann Gotcha. That's what I thought. Say, what's missing from my answer to make it valuable enough to you?

Could you clarify the context between "tournament" and "self-defense", please?

@RafalBurchard could you remove the parts of your answer that deal with the judicial legality of your actions? :)

@Sardathrion, I am aware of playing the devil's advocate, and there's no need to really answer me, but is it OUR responsibility to know the laws in OP's country? And is this law.SE or martialarts.SE ?

Fix grammar, a little bit of formatting.

@Sardathrion Huh? He wrote "I would be in position to deal with it TO GET AWAY using level of the force that I perceived TO SAVE MY SKIN". IANAL but that seems to me like the textbook legal definition of self-defense.

comment Start attacking instead of blocking while sparring
Ouch, I really thought this was a good answer! I'd like some feedback from the downvoter, if possible, so I can improve as a martial artist.

comment What is Fa-jin?
So, coiling the spine and then suddenly relaxing it would be a good example, but not the only way, because it can be done at varying degrees anywhere in the body, and with the right connection, it can be the entire body together?
