Stop Leg Reaping Instant Disqualifications in International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation Tournaments


Because it leads to many unjust instant disqualifications.

International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation 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.
