Like I wrote, judo is not normally trained specifically to deal with using throws to deal with striking. Less limitations in the sense that modern judo comp rules have eliminated leg grabs, yes indeed.

Falling for Judo since 1980

I studied Judo for about six months in college and found it easy to transition from Sanda as well. :)

I asked him if he was satisfied with the result and he said no, that he thought that there could have been better preparation .
I asked him if they were going to do it again and he said yes that there were plans to do it again next year.
The plan is to hold a tournament elimination prior to the event and the winners of the weight classes will fight Thai Boxers on August 6. The tournament will be open to non-Chinese as well . He also said one of the Chenjiagou guys broke his forearm blocking a kick so the Thais were not just pulling their punches and kicks."
