    This was a little while back, but I had heard some people talking about potential rule changes with regard to awarding ippon for landing "flat" on the back vs "rolling" onto the back, and since people tend to drag their opponents to the ground it would make seoi otoshi more difficult to score with and therefore not worth going for. Again, this was a while back and I've been out of the loop for a while, but maybe that has something to do with it?

    I heard what Dracula said as well. There are no more "rolling Ippon". I had heard that everyone was moving toward speed, control and uke landing on their back for an ippon. Those standards would make it difficult for seoi otoshi to get an ippon regardless of what rules the tournament is playing by.

    A good seoi otoshi can absolutely get ippon. The sucky ones you see most of the time no longer can, this is a Good Thing.

    Interpretation of what is or is not ippon isn't a rule change, guys. It's an interpretation.

    Correct, no more "rolling ippon". And that is a good thing! Like NeilG noted, though,
    Seoi Otoshi can score ippon, and what's wrong with Waza Ari ?

    Nanka put out notice a little while ago. It is for juniors only. I'm not in Nanka or the JF, so I don't know any more, but it is posted on their site.

    Yah, I finally talked with my coach about it and he said it was juniors ban only. As suspected they are trying to stop kids from just faceplanting each other with poor technique. Interestingly, there was a tournament yesterday and a surprising number of the Juniors looked lost without their seoi otoshi and ended up just grabbing a collar grip and flopping around a while.

    It's a developmental thing as well. Early dependence on Seoi Otoshi tends to stunt development of other throws. Little Janie/Johnnie can win with Seoi Otoshi, so why bother with anything else.

    I've seen it time and time again. Too much emphasis on competition at too young an age is the problem.

    Absolutely. There seoi otoshi floppers were completely powerless when their knee drop didn't work. The players with better standing throws and explosive groundwork were taking them to task (which was satisfying to watch).
