This girl has some serious technique!Good power grip, excellent kuzushi (love the little right leg sweep, like an Ouchi-gari) and tight tsukuri!   So, if you think Judo is not good for self-defenses… think again! I love how she just slams his face into the ground!  Judo confirmed 100% street.Side note: I have been thrown on my head before. It is very unpleasant. I do not recommend it.
