Alright, just wanted to be straight about it.

Well, I hope the smiley indicates happiness with where you are now, or at least happiness with not training.

It was kind of a joke. I have a couple of friends who wrestled in highschool and are into BJJ and we roll every couple of weeks, and I hit the heavy bag, but basically I'm not actively training fighting anymore. I bike a lot for cardio and do some basic weights and plyo's and that's 90% of my workout these days.

But this isn't my training thread! Let's get back on topic.

They need to make kicks and knees from your back legal but I don't really think anything else need to be legalized. I don't think the sport is in its infancy anymore either more like middle school. I really don't see the sport changing all that much in the next 20 years aside from more great athletes being involved and more depth to all the divisions.
