A problem of long hands in referee’s grip is developing by referees too. What are the ways of its fixing? ()
Evgeniy Prudnik asked about equality of referee’s grip after his fight with Vitaly Laletin at the second stage of Top-8. The problem is often a sportsmen, who has long hand, has wrist advantage in the referee’s grip. We asked Zil Fadli, PAL Head Referee, about option to improve the process of gripping.
In my opinion current referee’s grip style has loophole in it. When I make a referee’s grip with the long arm and finger like Vitaly Laletin’s it’s not as easy as everyone think. It’s almost impossible to get fair referee grip while maintaining the thumb visibility.
We are working on some new style or improvement from the current referee grip style to suits everyone.
