Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

Right, in that case, I cannot see any reasons to pick one technique over another.

Clearly you are not getting it thus I am not explaining myself clearly enough. I am sorry, does the edit make things less confused?

It is really hard to force a throw on someone. It is easy to adapt a throw to someone giving you the right move.

comment Martial art for a complete newbie - can i learn on my own?
Yes, you do need to go to a dojo/gym/ and learn from there. Otherwise, you will get injuries ranging from minor to server and debilitating and not learn anything of any use. Depending on your age, you will train as a junior or senior. This is important as junior classes should be designed so that they enhance and not imped your physical development. Do take care of your body, you only have one.

Welcome to the site! Your question is a possible duplicates: What martial art should I start with? and How to select the right Aikido dojo. Is there anything in those answers that does not answer your question? If so, edit your question to reflect this.

comment Who was the first female judoka?
Spiting hair, we could say that Tomoe Gozen (巴 御前?) was one of the first known ones although she would have trained in the ancestor martial arts that gave rise to those that might have influenced the ones that were used to derive judo/aikido. ^_~

comment Who was the first female judoka?
I like the question but I think there are three there: first female judoka, first female aikidoka, and how to do techniques against giants. I would up vote all three! On the latter part, I always suggest to smaller people doing kote-hineri on larger ones to carefully and with control use one or two or three fingers instead of the whole hand.

@slugster: I would class zombie karateka as undead so covered by the exception rule. Ditto for yakuza zombies with guns from the 444th portal aka Forest Of Resurrection.

comment Krav Maga, is it 100% legal for defense?
Just to make things clear: while you can ask legal advise from plebs on the Internet, please check with a criminal lawyer if you want a valid and legal answer.
