Re: The "Jo Trick" and Similar Exercises

Ellis, sounds like a submission wrestling match I had with a German Olympic caliber Judoka. He grabbed my GI and stiff armed me, locked my collar down and pushed me around the mat for 6 minutes, until I got frustrated and tried something and he Ippon'd me and won.

Not much of a submission fight, he won with fighting his judo strategy.

I have since learned how to defeat his Judo! I don't play his game any longer!

Rules matter a great deal in contest that is for sure! They can change everything!
