the new FS rules

Recommended Posts

So many exciting matches... with LOTS OF SCORING!!! It would be interesting to see a breakdown of total points scored under the old vs new rules. Plus, it seems like the # of protests and long match stoppages have decreased too.

 

Foster v Ruth 13-12

Green v Welch 10-10 (criteria, unfortunately). I think Welch's Qtr match was 17-12

 

Plenty of TF's too.

 

What a world of difference from the 1-0, 0-0, ball grab, 0-0 ball grab anesthesia that we had to put up with for years. The changes made by FILA have breathed new life into this sport.

Takedowns are now worth 2. That alone makes points and tech falls go up without necessarily any more action. Plus matches are 2 minutes longer.

 

The question is, has the number of takedowns increased? Or have they increased in the first 4 minutes? I'm sure they have, but I'd be curious to see it in numbers.

By and large, agree. Am enjoying FS much more.

 

I'm not all that clear on the rules though - I wish there was a video guide to the rules and points. Gives examples of positions and actions, including videos of complicated scrambles and how they should be scored and why. Official video from Fila. Really needed.
