Good afternoon! Last night I had my first opportunity to watch a Judo competition (in the Commonwealth Games). And to say the least I wasn't that impressed with it. My major gripe was that the referee would call matte the moment the players were on the floor and weren't making large movements (like one of them was trying for a strangle). The other was that ippons were being awarded for simply pushing an opponent over and rolling over him/her. I was under the impression that a recognized technique had to be completed for this to happen. What do other people think? Have I been told a load of rubbish in my Judo classes? Or is it that this particular competition simply has poor referees? FC  - And I do literally mean pushing the opponent over. Not one of them could have been classified as tani otoshi, (k)ouchi gari, (k)osoto gari, morote gari, etc.
