Dashdavaa's illegal waki-gatame

It's always distressing to see that clearly dangerous and illegal techniques like "waki-gatame while attempting a throw" are still being attempted by some international players. Worse still, they sometimes get away with it.

Here is an example of an illegal waki-gatame technique by Mongolia's Amartuvshin Dashdavaa, who should have gotten hansoku-make for it. But as it turned out, neither the referee nor the video judges gave him a penalty for it. Strange. And worrisome.


Dashdavaa's clearly illegal waki-gatame attack injures his opponent yet he doesn't get a penalty for it.


Waki-gatame is a despicable attack that deserves to get hansoku-make.
