    they are keeping the IJF based rules as well, but in the missouri valley district we've had a few freestyle judo tournaments & they've been very popular. major differences include: gi & no gi divisions. harder to score an ippon by throw (the throw would have to have incapacitated someone if not done on a mat). & best of all, time to work newaza.

    i think this is a good move for judo as a sport & will attract more people to the art.

    I'd just as soon see 'em go back to the 1880's rules, that's the only true judo IMO.

    we're working on it andy.

    as an aside, i recently got a copy of "kano's jujitsu" written circa 1900 by a fellow named hancock. while i respect the rules & the spirit of early judo, i'm sure glad the techniques have evolved.

    As another aside, Hancock's Kano jujitsu is not judo, nor was it approved by Kano.

    I have spoke with Norm Miller on a few occasions before reading this post. He is a great guy. By the way, thanks for the site address.

    Nice, now they just need to allow the use of one of my favourite throws, kaniwaza and I will be happy.

    i'd like them to include leg locks, but i don't think it's gonna happen.
