    I ran into these on Youtube and some nice throws and sweeps. Looks kind of like a judo.





    I just noticed they don't use mats. hardcore.

    Might be a reason it won't catch on...

    Every time they go down they seem to catch themselves in such a way I'm expecting to see arms snapping like twigs.

    The first judo club in my hometown did have mats for the first 5 or so years, might be a reason to why there were only like 5 people training :p
