Guard jumping/slamming and Judo
I have been wondering a while what basis they use to call a guard jump an ippon for the other guy. I stumbled upon this at judoinfo.com and I thought I'd share it with the rest of y'all. Apparently what we call a "guard slam" ala Rampage Jackson is called a Daki Age in Judo. I never knew this before....
Anyways, you can read about it here...... http://judoinfo.com/dakiage.htm
what I found most interesting was this little excerpt....
I know I'll probably get flamed for this, but perhaps Judo was aiming for more realism when they made this rule -- to make a rule to point out that jumping guard or allowing yourself to be picked up is not a good idea because you can be slammed on your neck
Around 1925, Tsunetane Oda welcomed Daki-Age to become a competition waza from his unique viewpoint as one of the Kosen gurus. He said "it would eliminate clumsy Sankaku or Juji-Gatame for fear of being lifted up for ippon." He thought Daki-Age was possible because people were generally poor in grappling techniques. He wrote, "To prepare for Mae-Sankaku (triangle choke from the front), one has to first kick the leg of an opponent to lie him flat thus avoiding to be lifted up or flipped over."
but on the other hand.... it's not realistic to say a fight is ended when you're thrown or slammed for that matter, plenty of us have been slammed and continued on to win by submission (Fedor vs. Randleman), but others have certainly lost by being slammed (Rampage Jackson vs. Ricardo Arona)
anyway, I didn't want to make this thread another debate on why Judo rules suck because they favor the thrower (which they do). I just thought some of you may find this interesting.
