    I know Judo starts on Aug 9th, but I'm not sure if they are going to televise any of it here in the states. I'm gonna ask some of the guys from the club this week to see if they know where to watch.

    It's not nearly as popular on the international level, so it's doubtful. However a change in IJF rules that would allow for more Newaza would be surely welcomed with open arms.
