Because I'm a fan of flying scissors and foot sweeps:

Every time I see something like this it makes me feel like a wimp for complaining about any aspect of my training. Outside taking falls on concrete like it's nothing. That's great.

if i had some of my rondori matches on concrete id probably be dead by now, lol.

so thats meihuazhang? awesome, ive read alot about it but never seen it, now i see why balance is so important in this art.
There are some awesome leg techniques in there, i like the spinning back kick to the sweep. it sucks in judo nowadays because they dont teach you many techniques that attack the legs, my teacher says that they are too dangerous, but he demonstrated the scissor takedown for us anyway.

cool dude.

The leg scissors takedown (kani basami) is banned in Judo because of the danger to the opponent's legs.

One of the worst injuries I've seen in grappling came as a result of the scissors takedown.

I teach it a little differently, so the pressure causes the opponent to bend at the hips and knees, so it is safer for the opponent, but any properly applied variation is efficient.
