    Yeah, but it's not particularly easy if the 20 stone person doesn't want to be thrown. In a real fight or competition it requires the 10 stone person to be a) really, really good and b) a whole lot better than the other guy.

    Unless you know BJJ, in which case you would be a rolling stone.

    But yeah. Size matters a great deal. A big guy with mediocre technique can neutralize a small guy with good technique.

    Yes, if they are more skilled. Weight does matter. I weigh about 12 stone, and my heaviest training partners have been around 21 stone. Mind you, most of my throws I wouldn't bother with on them, because it would be too risky to one or both of us. But there are certainly throws that are still good candidates. If they had been closer to my skill, they would have had an advantage, because weight helps in counters.

    If you know how to borrow your opponent's force. You have to give before you can take.

    Steve, you are a very, very bad man. Don't ever change.

    To the OP: Yes, one can. Most can't. Usually you're talking a two belt difference or more.

    Or if you get lucky. Usually, if you hit a throw on someone who outweighs you by 2x both were involved.

    Yes, I can and have.
    I would agree if you are talking about throws being used in isolation, which they are of course not designed to be during combat. But with the right strike/strikes before hand I wouldn't envisage too many problems.
