grappling tournament question ???

What would you think of a grappling tournament having a rule that you can't use a closed guard ???


It would be great for people that can't pass the guard!

Stupid, my brother has swept everyone he has ever faced in a tournament even the guys he has lost to with closed guard sweeps and all these were no gi

Bad Idea

On second thought, I think it would be cool -- but only if passing guard was prohibited. And maybe if noogies were allowed too.

Do you think it would it increase the pace of the competition ? Make the tourny more exciting to a person who doesn't know the sport per say ?

if there is no closed guard a person who doesn't know the sport will never get to know the sport
