FILA has started a new wrestling style. It is called COMBAT WRESTLING
---This is NOT a joke, trust me. I saw it on their website. Combat Wrestling is an amateur form of Mixed Martial Arts with 2 variations(--rules where the fighters can attack the opponents head, and rules where the fighters can't attack the opponent's head).
---I also heard that Olympic Judo has changed their rules, and that the primary attack can no longer be a leg grab(---such as a single or double leg takedowns).
The International Judo Federation apparently wants to keep the tradition of THROWING or Throw/Trip combinations as the main focus of Judo combinations----Although orgininal Kano Jiu-Jitsu(---later called JUDO) included leg attacks and used ground fighting(ne-waza).
Ground fighting(ne-waza) is apparently taught in Judo schools, but is not emphasized in most Judo tournaments(--although there are apparently some Ne-Waza Judo tournaments which the International Judo Federation sanctions).
Appartently there were Judoka's who were using leg grabs/takedowns successfuly in tournaments, and probably the people who run Judo didn't like it.
I have to wonder how long it will be before amatuer wrestling, as we understand it is removed from the Olympics, and is replaced by something like Combat Wrestling.....
