    I heard somewhere that there is a limit to how many steps you can take while holding the opponents leg


    Can @anorak @Cocakillbana confirm?

    Y'know your basement? Well right underneath that.
    I recall Duke Rufous saying something to that effect, because of a pretty bad accident where a guy got run out of the ring and tipped over.

    This is true that technique was called "The Plow" and guys were nearly being killed by it.



    I believe it's three steps and you have to strike or release now.

    I think you are only allowed 2 steps now when holding the opponents leg.

    Which is interesting as this could happen even without that technique allowed.

    Yup, this is the fight I remember seeing. Good grief.

    That's usually the way though, isn't it?

    Authorities and commissions always seem to take the wrong idea away from these things. They seemed to think of this being a problem with the moves as opposed to the ring ropes not being strong enough. Like, if you look at a pro wrestling ring, they are loose that you dive between them but they're intentionally sturdy enough to avoid unnecessary accidents.

    Yeah I've seen it happen countless times and nothing to do with catching the leg and running across the ring with the opponent's leg, like here for instance:

    Well the discussion started with Youssef trying to throw people out of the ring from the clinch and evolved into the plow. not necesarily related. anyway it's always good to find an excuse to watch some Jongsanan vs. Sakmongkol.
