Taitoshi is something like 'body drop'. It says nothing; by the time
you've learned it you may as well memorise the sound. I think
osotogari is "major outer reap".

IIRC, you do BJJ, right? What do you call omo plata? Heck, what do you
call jiu-jitsu?
-------------------------------------------------------------

jiu jitsu - ju jitsu, obviously. Stupid Brazilians, screwing up the English
language.

omoplata - death from guard

gogoplata - yoga choke

mata leao - *gerk*

upa - oompa

Americana - it's just the Australiana here

Kimura - perp. arm lock (might as well give it just one more name)

Baiana - banana

I can't think of any more names to make fun of. Add your own.
