    Next year, I read January but that was only a parting glance.

    I am too important and famous to google further.

    Thanks for the link so next year you have to actually be down to be a downed opponent. Or do the trick with both hands down allowing them to wack away at your head with punches great change.

    Knee works yes. I believe you now need both hands and both feet grounded (if no knee is down). So someone with both hands down who lifts a foot up is fair game.
