Agreed, and as I said in a similar thread, I would like to see holding and hitting allowed (a must) and possibly elbows and maybe even headbutts, although the headbutts would be a low priority for me. Maybe even standing submissions.

Maybe make a rule regarding the throws not allowing the attacking of the legs with the arms, but allowing the attacking of the legs with the legs (for trips and throws, not kicks) sort of a half version of greco roman rule. So as to encourage throws and suplexes, but discourage shots.
