Default Questions on disarm skill

If I have a disarm(judo) of 15- and try to disarm as sword from someone it gets -2 for non-disarming weapon and -4 from weapon size, right? Then if I hit and the defender fails a defense roll do I get the same penalties in the quick contest afterwards? It is confusing to me.

The -2 for a non-fencing weapon is for the weapon you're using, not the one you're trying to knock away. The ensuing Quick Contest is unpenalized on both sides, though you get +2 of you're using Jitte/Sai or Whip, and the defender gets +2 if he's holding his weapon in both hands.

Thanks. I didn't know the quick contest was unpenalized. That makes disarming much more doable.
