I suppose pulling up on the head would be frowned upon in judo, but I don't see the grapevine as much of a submission, I have never heard it was illegal in judo, and I even believe it's the recommended method for holding mount in judo (as opposed to the high mount, which is better for armbars, chokes and stuff, but more vulnerable to the bridge-and-roll escape).
There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

ya, grapevine isn't a submission in judo just a way to hold the mount, which is a pin, and can get you an ippon after 25 seconds in Judo competition. Like I said before, I think it's a good way to get control and get the shoulder choke

My cousin gave me some tapes of him doing tkd. I learned from those tapes. When I beat up an Akido instructor, and made him take rest breaks, I used TKD. I learned Bjj from watching ufc and pride and then I copied them and wrestled my cousin for practice. I choked him out and he tapped.

It's excellent, I use it from guard and mount, strings people out, forces them to either exert themselves or suffer through it. I use it to set up multiple sweeps with ease, a few submissions, and the vine itself can be used as a submission on an opponent of similair size.
One reason they might have warned against it, I suppose, I recently showed the grapevine to a guy in TKD- we have weekly grappling sessions- as a setup to a sweep.... well, he tried it on a guy that outweihed him by 100lbs. While he managed to string the guy out for a second, his opponent, brought one foot up to stand up out of guard, but seeing as his foot was still wrapped...... the guy's knee was practically destroyed, he's been out of practice for two months and won't be able to work with us again till late november, early December. I have never had a problem with this on account of a very high degree of flexibility, that and I don't get caught like that.... but n00bs, yeah, I was informed to never teach that to beginners ever again, I felt like such a dick.
Honestly, between grapevining in mount and in guard, I find grapevining in guard to be far more constructive, if I'm in mount I want to be able to move around more, shift to knee in stomach, north/south, etc. I've found that while a grapevine is great for holding someone in mount- which is excellent for a pinning game- you don't have too many submissions, you have to release the grapevine and in the release you may find yourslef vulnerable to being swept (granted, swept into your guard, but still swept).
I hope some of this has been useful.

Cheers for the input guys. I think she might have misunderstood what I was doing and thought I was going for a "groin-bar" rather then a pin as I was told it put dangerous stress the hips.
