As a sidespin, has anybody tried to use a grading belt as a weapon. I once nearly broke my uke's wrist, when during a hip throw their hand slipped under my belt. As I threw them they moved from standing to prone with their hand wrapped in my brabelt, nearly king their wrist (and ripping off my gi).
They looked a bit shame-faced and hurried off the mat. Please could someone mention some techniques I can perform with my belt.
P.S. I have been dating the above mentioned uke for 3 months - maybe she was trying something?
When I was a beginner my belt fell off during randori. One of the higher grade students who was standing behind me picked it up and then proceded to choke me with it. Wasn't a nice experience. That guy had a reputation for beating up beginners.
