Stop Leg Reaping Instant Disqualifications in International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation Tournamen
I just signed the following petition addressed to: International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation
You are being contacted because a myself a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitor and practitioner just signed a petition stating that I would like leg reaping to NOT be an automatic disqualification against the opponent who performed the leg reaping action.
By signing this petition I believes:
- Leg reaping should AT A MINIMUM should not be an automatic disqualification against the person performing the reap from Blue Belt to Black Belt.
- Those performing leg reaping motions in IBJJF competitions should at least be warned clearly multiple times before any possible disqualification.
- This IS NOT a petition for allowing heel hooks. It is a petition for changing the automatic disqualification rule for when a competitor does a leg reap.
There have been many unjust disqualifications due to the inconsistencies with the leg reaping rule and the reffing involved with the leg reaping rule and I am asking you to change this rule.
