die otoshi -- you know this will be the next throw when you step on your sensei's foot by accident.

nippon sode sasae tsuri komi harai goshi -- while holding the sleeve you block, lift, pull and sweep the hip, and in the process learn Japanese.

o soto -- when your spouse puts you in the doghouse after being out too much with your Jiu-Jitsu buddies (literally "major outside").

no mind -- your state of mind when you must get up in front of the class to demonstrate a technique.

kuchi waza -- what the old-timers practice ("mouth technique").

ouchy mata -- an attempted uchi mata (inner thigh throw) where the attacking leg comes straight up the middle into your crotch..

hernia nage -- variation of ura nage which occurs when uke's weight is at least twice that of tori's.

ouchi gari -- while performing major inner reaping, the top of tori's head strikes uke's face, thereby adding to the kuzushi (ouch!).

nidan ashi waza -- 2-legged sprint for cover.

ku ichi ichi -- one-finger 911 technique.

Please note: "Ouch" is not a Jiu-Jitsu term
