comment What submissions are not allowed in competitive Judo?
a solid post, but i really have to disagree with : "It's also common for judoka to view groundwork as more tiring or time-consuming than stand-up work. Many players avoid groundwork for that reason." i don't know anyone who thinks it's more tiring, it really is just the lack of time allowed that deters most judoka from engaging in ground work. And the BJJ style triangle is ONLY called for being illegal if you pull down on the head. lots of bjj people can finish with out that.

comment How is the scoring determined in Judo for the Olympics?
I don't think that has ever been the rule, as far back as I can remember (about 15 years), 2 waza aris equaled ippon.

comment What can one do to avoid entering a grappling situation?
a well placed knee to the head is a deadly weapon, ask aoiki: youtube.com/watch?v=lDYCLThJebw I agree #4, with that specific technique isn't great, but there are some good options to escaping collar grips and chokes from the front.

comment How to best maintain mount position
granted, it's best from side control, but i wouldn't call it a waste from mount. if all else fails, they'll often straighten their arm to avoid it, or like you said bridge, and when they do, hello arm bar.

comment How to best maintain mount position
i'm going to have to disagree with the americana from mount being a waste, i've finished 2 fights a couple tournaments ago with it :P you make a good point about setting up the subs and not worrying about staying in mount though. i do often catch the arm bars on the way off. but the points game is still a huge part of the sport.

comment What can I do to improve my squat for judo throws during randori?
ankle flexibility might be the problem as well, i suppose that is part of leg flexibility, but it's often overlooked. I've had trouble with squats in the past, and it was due to inflexible ankles!
