Slams were definitely among those tangents!
Yeah, slams and collisions are considered strikes in GURPS, so much as I wanted to deal with those - I find the rules inelegant by RAW - they were definitely off-mission. Like when someone asked "why can't you apply trained ST to striking?!" I said "GAH! I want to! But . . . "

Yeah well by now enough loving goodness has been inspired by that book that I think it has a record.
Pyramid 3/91 Codex Duello (Use of the Trained ST system)
Pyramid 3/83 Possessions Under Control (use of CP)
I thought it got a mention in Fourth Edition Festival but those were just Kromms ideas.
Still I feel I am missing a few other places.

You might want to take a peek at The Grappling Mat section of my blog, though, since there are some things like damaging takedowns I cover there that didn't make the book.
I know that you were joking. I was just playing along. Also don't worry, I've read pretty much every grappling mat you have posted. ;)

I saw the grappling mat focusing on sumo wrestling, so I was referring to that. :)

It also started my Sumo Wrestling craze, which led to this in the end.

You are a paragon. All should follow your worthy example.
