SAMBO reward "Take the back" too? Since when? A convergent evolution with BJJ or influenced by it?

    While we’re on the subject of back points it’s still bonkers to me that a lot of grappling tournaments have yet to adopt the body triangle as back control.

    It seems that the guy mistook FICW COMBAT WRESTLING for SAMBO.

    Well, it was like that in the original ibjjf ruleset if i recall correctly, which a lot of later promotions that would spring up used, in parts or in whole, as a popular convention (ie, 'we use it because everyone uses it'); one of the most famous example perhaps being how the ADCC also did not score body triangles for the longest time.
