    Leigh's idea should actually encourage activity.

    If you get reversed from top to bottom side mount, you'd give up points. However, if you advanced to mount and then got reversed, you wouldn't give up any points. Makes sense to me.

    Defo the best rules but how many competition organisers would be willing to do it?

    This might seem a silly question but what does your Gi weigh in roughly about? My Blitz Lutador one weighs in at 3 KG. I never thought of Gi's weight making to much of a differance.

    These guys run them in the states. Apparently in the last one they had a three hour long match.

    Yeah, I've read about that. Sounds like a pretty brutal match to be involved in... I bet the next round was tough, haha!

    That's nothing, the semi-final of the Middleweight (75kg) Greco-Roman at the 1912 Olympics went on for eleven hours and forty minutes.
