    ISWA Rule discussion

    This information is from November 30 2006 but I haven't noticed any mention of it here on Bullshido.
    It appears that FILA have taken steps to form a governing body for submission grappling. A World Grappling Committee has been formed. Notable members include Renzo Gracie and Prince Tahnoon Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

    Official FILA statement.

    Competition rules.

    This could turn out to be a Happy New Year for the growth of grappling as a sport.

    i take a very wary view of any group that expressly intends to fit submission wrestling into the ruletastrophy that is the olympics.

    but, i'm reading.

    Look what the olympics did to Judo...

    This might be a good thing, or a horrible one.

    after reading the rules, they seem ok. some of it i didn't quite understand (maybe i'm just a nub here, but wtf is a back splash? wikipedia says it's some sort of pro wrestling nonsense), and the rules about no wristlocks and no combination joint lock/throws will probably produce a wave of "aikido is too deadly for sport" bullshit.

    i do like the big throw > little throw > simple takedown bit of scoring.

    i'm rather surprised that while kneeriding and headcrushing are verboten, there's nothing about straight cervical attacks. maybe i'm just misreading that rule, though, based on the examples.

    I'm wary of anything run by those fuckers who don't want women to compete.

    I competed under these rules about 3 months ago, and will again this February, under the ISWA organization (whose president is now a member of the board of FILA, Jason Townsend). They're ok rules. The biggest problem I ran into is judges who called a "catch" too early. And yes I AM bitter for being robbed. More specifically, I wish they would do away with the entire "catch" idea, that's what tapping is for. We'll see where it goes.

    As far as women in this competition. At the last one, I think only a couple of girls competed, and one did rather well.

    Catch is bullshit. Complete fucking bullshit. If I wanted to compete in Judo, I'd fucking take Judo.

    Edit: I just noticed this all no-gi stuff. I do real BJJ so it's all good.

    Am I reading right that heel hooks+inside toe holds, all sorts of neck/spine cranks, etc. are all legal for anyone over 20?
