Then you enter a competition and are suddenly pitted against a wrestler. This man is new to judo, at least in the way you define it, but has years of competitive wrestling behind him. He defeats you. Why does this man not deserve a black belt in judo? The stuff you spent so long learning did not prevent your defeat. He is obviously better than you at fighting to judo rules.
By your standards... why don't we just put a silver back gorilla in the shiai that has been trained to pick people up and just dump them on their back. There's nothing in the rules against that. (unless someone has tried it recently to win a trophy and they have just made up a new rule.)

I don't care how many shiai he wins...he ain't a judoman and dosen't deserve to join that club. If what you want is poplular enough, just call it freestyle jacket wrestling or something like that. Do whatever you want, it's not what judo was meant to be.
