Generally, we use what amounts to the freestyle judo ruleset + straight leglocks, or I guess you could say sport sambo + chokes. It is the most all-inclusive thing we could do. Then, if there's a particular competition coming up, we'll switch to that specific ruleset for a week or two.

The only big rules in our gym are no flying scissor takedowns and no heel hooks on white belts. It's pretty liberating. We're a 10th Planet and CSW affiliate, so there's a fair amount of toe holds, neck cranks, etc. in our curriculum.

With other people my rank, Its usually everything goes. But with whitebelts I will use the Ibjjf standard, until they try a kneebar, then RIP partners legs

From what I can tell we don't adhere to any particular rule set other than don't be a dick head.
Wrist locks, compression locks, leg locks, toe holds/presses, all seem to be fine for any belt level as long as you know what your doing.

When a tournament is coming up, coach will remind us what is illegal in that particular rule set and when he teaches a technique that might be illegal he lets us know that "IBJJF white belts can't use this" or whatever. He also emphasizes points for positions, but I roll my eyes and ignore that.
