He's a good uke, yes.

That lady must have ankles of steel.

Some modern-day women judoka going to work in non-demo things.

They should just impale their assailants on their conical bullet-bras.

So: proto-Gymkata, is what you're saying.

Heels no matter what, obviously.

Takedown at 1:20 is pretty impressive. Takedown at 2:42, flipping the guy over her shoulders by a thin belt around his neck, would appear to be ... extremely dangerous to practice. Jeez.

I'm so wearing heels to my next grappling class.

I think my favorite part is the satisfied little sway she does after each one. She's all like "HELL YES, AND I LOOKED GOOD DOING IT."

Yeah. She instantly reverts back to gum popping dame in poolhall. Who probably would need to be able to take care of herself, now that I think about it.

God, I love Metafilter. How did I know before I even hit the link that there would be a Gymkata reference here?

Try that on Reddit, they won't have the first clue what you're talking about.

Needs a male version where he shows feminazis a thing or two.

"Debbie...Debbie, get off that pulley thing. You're not really doing anything, and Mary's trying to show us her Judo moves. We all know you're just trying to get on camera. Not everything has to be about you, Debbie."

Final uppercut is priceless.

That's fantastic. Great atemi-waza, and her technique is really good generally, although I can't shake my suspicion that the bit of go-no-kata for dealing with a pistol in the back is just... not going to end well.

The heels put me in mind of that quote about Grace Kelly; it's also, I guess, a great answer to the question "could I use it on the street".
