Personally I think its a crap rule change, they should've just evolved the curriculum to put more emphasis on being able to sprawl to avoid such takedowns. Only one positive I can see from it is for small/light guys as gradings are all open weight so there's arguably slightly less chance of them just being overpowered by someone stronger than them that may not have great technique.

    As a footnote, the rules around leg grabs are going to be stricter next year, if its deemed illegal then it'll be a straight DQ rather than the current system of a warning first.
    just googled him and i enjoy his style..... infact, it's pretty much what i'd do if i was allowed

    i was told that 1 reason moves like the double leg were taken out was due to alot of injury being cause, people getting slamed off the matts or into the audience. Any truth to this? I guese its possible

    Guess that may be possible but I don't think so given that you are still allowed to utilise every form of leg grab, just that they now have to be part of a counter. Also I doubt there's any higher incidence of injury due to single/double leg takedowns than any other throw.
