    For those of you that don't know, the IBJJF recently released over its Facebook page the newest updates to the rules that will be implemented in 2013 at the Europeans. What are your guys' thoughts on the rules? I would provide cliffs, but to be honest I'm not quite sure how to interpret some of the rules. There is relevant information regarding penalties and takedown scoring and, as many people are probably hoping, reaping may be directly affected by these rule changes.

    The 3 second "stabilization" to get points for a takedown is interesting. Could make for explosive, mad scrambling by each competitor.
