New Judo Rules IJF meddling again

Over the last few years I have tired of Judo Competitions as they do not represent what I was competing in. Why simply because the people who run World Judo consistently change the rules and not for the better could these rule changes be partly responsible for the lack of interest in Judo over recent years? I do not know but what I do know the general public have a job understanding them unlike Sambo where the rule and signals are easy to understand. My belief is they should look at Sambo rules not copy them but use their idea as a framework for new innovation. Before you say Martin prefers Sambo to Judo yes I do prefer Sambo competition to Judo but what keeps my interest in Judo is its Philosophy  and most importantly Kata which makes Judo more then just a Sport
