  1. Thanks for giving an update on how the beach wrestling event went. Would love to see a link to the vine with the questionable no-call for back exposure. Hard to comment without seeing it, but was the questionable call include a takedown…I’m only asking because back exposure without the takedown is no points in beach wrestling. First time I’ve ever heard of allowing a 3 point move, with a takedown to the back out-of-bounds, usually (since around 2009) the push-out point will trump the takedown w/back for just one point.

    Definately still a developing style, and sure there will be more changes at the international level as UWW contemplates making a push to include beach wrestling in the Olympic Games. In Michigan, where we just had a 5-week season, we adjusted the rules to expand the points needed to be 5 points; we did this because there were concerns from parents about driving to the tournaments and many matches lasting less than a minute. After this adaptation, several matches went the duration of the whole 3 minutes.

    Good stuff, keep up the good work.
