Witness my defeat

Alas, my budo was ultimately proven to be weak.

Small children kick my arse as well. I go on yard duty, try to get them to do something only to realise I am powerless against them...

indeed
I am slowy refining a technique to defeat the above problem. It involves telling my mother (who also works at the school), who then tells the mother of the child and/or the other mothers, thus creating unwanted gossip upon the child and family in question, thus forcing the parents to fix their faulty children.

Can you please tell me what the purple thing on your head in image 12 is? It seems to be some hair protection device from the later photos, though in 12 it looks like a jester's hat or something.

Yes! That is a tenugui - a piece of cotton about two hand lengths wide and maybe 3/4 of a metre long. It is tied/folded around the head before the men (helmet) is put on, and acts to help cusion any blows to the head as well as soaking up sweat and (hopefully) preventing it from dripping into your eyes.

The reason why it looks so odd is because it came unfolded just as I was reaching for my men (and just when the photo was taken) because it was a bit windy. A little embarassing, actually...

Change your game plan, woman!
I told you last time, his ground skills are weak. Take him to the ground and maintain the top position. Your brother can't co-ordinate his hips with his legs on the ground, and his upper body and arms are not strong enough to just push you off if you get a good base. Then work for the kimura.
When he comes inside your range, turn to the side and try for otoshi, or some other turning throw. (no uchi mata, he is too tall)I'd suggest jumping gaurd, but that would just be wrong between brother and sister.
