Does Piggy need to change?
Do we need a IPF (International Piggy Federation)
Do we need standardized rules across the world to promote and help
regulate this wonderful game/warm-up!
I say YES!
To many times, I have I gone to another Dojo to find the rules of Piggy
different from the ones at my home Dojo.
I would often find myself at an immediate disadvantage, trying to not
only learn about my new teammates and opponents, but the rules as-
I have a few-
-No hitting from behind (Safety)
-When a team is "Skins" there will be no using lubricants, oils, or other
products on the skin
-Goalies are not allowed to wear an oversized judogi.
-But there will be no restriction on where you may shoot from (This
hopefully will help the goalie from cheating out of his/her net, and well
as encourage more shoots/more goals/more action)
Some I feel that should be debated are-
-Dropping the ball, kicking it, and then chasing after it (basically a
pass to yourself. Does this promote teamwork? Will this make people
become ball hogs?)
-The ball must bounce at least once to count as a goal (I like when it
bounces, makes it a little easier on the goalie)
