    True. Though everyone (apart from Rorion) agrees on the point system tournaments will vary wildly as to what submissions are allowed, and at what level.

    You don't win by throwing someone onto their back.
    It is a GRAPPLING sport in which you can earn 2 points for throwing someone...that is it. Then it will remain on the ground. Giving the BJJer a great deal of time to regain the 2 points and then some. If you throw and then back away from the ground game...expecting your opponent to get up so you can throw him again...you will be penalized. Same as if you are on the ground and fight to get away just to stand up. You MUST fight on the ground.

    This actually depends on the specific tournament rules as well. I have been to tournaments where people have done exactly that.

    If you knock them unconcious with the throw you win though.

    I think that's to mean if you're on top and you just decide to stand up and disengage, that's considered stalling. This is to prevent wrestlers or takedown artists to just continually take their opponent down, score two points and repeat, rather than work to improve their position or work for a submission. I stand up to pass guard all the time, or work to my feet when I'm on the bottom.

    Thank you very much for all your advice and comments. Although, i must clarify that we do not train in judo, so he dosen't have to wory about not doing judo.

    He was invited to a brazilian ju-jitsu place and he called to see if it was good to go for him to go. And the place is holding a tournament or something soon and i think that he wants to try it out. So i told him that he absolutely should, nothing beats trying aout all possibilities
