    It ought to be a recent decision. I saw several videos dated about the end of '90s, early 2000s and several judoka used them.

    I bet due to the fact one side was in contact with the tatami and then, reverting to the body, it caused skin problems (eczemas, warps ecc.).

    Yeah the seemed like a good idea at the time, but very quickly fell out of favor before being outright banned.
