    Of course shortcomings in rulesets and reffing are the biggest why crosstriaining is so important. You wanna be good standing up, taking down, or on the ground? Well guess what, you gotta work standing up, taking downing, and working the ground.

    In summary, judo pwns. It's alive and the training is highly athletic. The only flaws are some arbitary rules in place that don't seem to be there for safety, such as no changing grip to the opposite lapel for more than three seconds. That sounds a bit pointless to me.
    Welcome to the nightmare, the restrictive ruleset of Judo.

    Well, the only complaint I would have about judo rules is it's hard to train under them and then go do an open grappling tourney.

    Most judo players would have to supplement at least a little bit (certainly with a greater number of ground only classes if nothing else)

    It's not really that restrictive, but it is kind of funny to hear someone during randori saying "Hey, you can't do that in competition."

    I know it is crazy talk but I'd rather train Judo mainly as a martial art and use competion and its ruleset as a sub-set of my training, not as the main focus.

    Yea, I always tell my randori partners that I am not training for judo competitions, so if it is ok with them, i'd like to allow leg locks and other judo illegal techniques. Most people dont have a problem with it. Of course I dont go for many techs that are illegal in judo anyways.

    It's not even that stuff that usually get's people's Comp-dar set off, but the more minor things like grip issues, etc.

    Mongo's pretty much dead on that the more exotic stuff within the Judo curriculum that is kept out of randori and competition, including the leglocks, neck cranks, small joint manipulations and other Gene LaBelle favorites, aren't really that useful even if you allow them into your randori/competitive fighting. They're worth knowing and worth training in with knowledgeable partners, but you may find in the long run you end up back on the old reliable and acceptable techniques.more often then not.

    I do have a thing for wrist control, and I get called for pistol grips a lot. Its something I've been trying to work on not doing, and I'm not sure where I picked up this 'bad' habbit. But it makes it so easy to control the arm sometimes.

    No it wasn't. Your comments about how you hang with the higher kyu judo guys on the ground with your 3 months of bjj etc make it obvious you think you're better than you are.

    STFU about leglocks and learn to pass the guard whitebelt.

    Leglocks are awful "useful" if the other person knows them and you don't, and they're allowed.

    I'd like to ammend this with the obligatory "judo newaza still sucks"

    Thank you.
