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.. :)

comment How effective are foul techniques as a side control escape?
@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?

I'm guessing that when you describe the 'common first step' you're hinting at a drill that helps develop the suddenness of the release?

comment Thrusting Targets in the Leg
At the risk of being redundant, could you indicate explicitly what your 'purpose' is? Is it to win a duel, to survive, to win a tournament, to maim, to kill, or something else entirely? I believe the answer will depend on this.
