Russians really love the Makarov, there's a hilarious line-drawing of a Soviet Era infantry soldier doing a standing ankle lock while shooting another enemy with his sidearm. Its LOL, I wish I could find it.
Other story line I've heard is that Oschepkov, the BB Judoka who was 1/2 of the team that formed the style, was eliminated by his rival -Spiridonov-who didn't like the Japanese feel he brought.
Taking chokes out of competetion soon followed.

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

Nobody knows what I'm talking about. I have to tell them "it looks more like wrestling than karate" and they still think I break boards and catch flies with a pair of chopsticks. It's gotten to the point that I carry issues of Ultimate Grappling Magazine and Royler Gracie books in my car so that I can whip them out when people ask for an explanation. And they still think I am a flying nunchucker!
