Re: Combat

Why throw someone? You just let someone escape to attack you again.
If someone can get up from a serious throw that involves them landing on concrete quicker than you can follow up, you deserve to lose.

Pointing out that dojo training is artificial is a good point, but it is taken too far. You do everything politely on the mat for a reason. Out in the world, it is a different context, and you will be in a totally different mindset.
