    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    I've always wondered why they don't include Judo. I mean they've got sambo, but still...

    Good point, I keep forgetting about those "other" Judo clubs you run into.

    To answer that, you need but peak at FILA's wiki article.

    The International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles, also known in French as Fédération Internationale des Luttes Associées (FILA), is an international wrestling federation that holds events around the world. It is the governing body of international amateur wrestling.

    FILA is the governing body a amateur wrestling. Judo is not amateur wrestling. Sambo is arguable, but they decided to include it.

    From what information I've been able to dig up, beach wrestling is something of a cultural revolution started by college wrestlers on spring or summer break. The rules are heavily simplified, and the arena is somewhat smaller. There is no scoring system. Just one pin or two near-falls for victory.

    yeah its a very recent thing I am surprized FILA has picked it up already. there are no near-falls though first one with a pin or to get 2 takedowns wins or if the 3 minutes run out the first takedown wins.

    Also thats awesome for the Greco team we normally suck at greco, and do much better at freestyle.
