    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.....

    I've been saying this one for a couple of years now. With the emergence of MMA around the globe and the decline of sports like boxing, I would have to believe that come 2020 we see the four main Olympic martial arts combined into one field, Combat Wrestling or some other name to appease all involved. It makes sense from the Olympic stand point. MMA is a rapidly emerging sport that combines numerous forms of martial arts, including those currently in competition. The tournaments would take less time as a whole, there would be less medals to hand out and you have an all-in-one sport with kicks, hand strikes, throws, grappling and submissions. I'd hate to see it happen, but that seems to be the natural progression of things at this time as FILA continues to embrace these other forms of the sport.

    I'd like combat wrestling in the olympics.... would be good.

    Although would be terrible if they got rid of amatuer wrestling for this sport.

    You are correct about the revised Juso rules.

    Combat Grappling :

    Article 2 ? Philosophy
    Combat grappling is a hybrid sport formed of wrestling, jujitsu and other styles of submission fighting
    that also incorporates striking and kicking techniques. The philosophy lying behind combat grappling is
    to provide common grounds to all combat styles and to create a safe amateur form of Mixed Martial
    Arts. Combat grappling also intends to be a realistic form of self-defense covering all aspects of
    standing and ground fighting, thus making it perfect and safe to use for military, police, and security
    training.

    Here it is. This has to have the IOC singing "hallelujah" when thinking about how to combine these sports, while saving time and money so they can place their focus elsewhere.

    How similar is combat grappling to pankration?

    Is this Kiguchi's Combat Wrestling (submission fighting). Kiguchi has been running Combat Wrestling tournaments in Japan for 20 years. Kid Yamamoto, Gomi, Genki Sudo, etc, etc have done Combat Wrestling.

    An interesting development to be sure. This can be wildly successful if FILA can partner with a majour MMA professional outfit and get the styles officially endorsed.

    Personally, I'm not sure how I feel about it. I'm concerned that if this does become popular (especially in the US) that "traditional" wrestling will begin to fall more and more by the way-side.
