      The rule creates inconsistency in judging practices, and needs to be reviewed with fighter community input.

      I am a highly flexible jiu jitsu player, and transitional knee reaping (NOT intended to damage the knee) in order to get to other positions is essential to several moves I've developed. This rule keeps me from even attempting to compete because it stifles my creativity.

      Its a part of the game. Rules so be in place so people dont play dirty, i feel like this is a great option to have and really resembles what BJJ is all about. Leverage

      For countless aeons, the globalist elite who run the Brazilian cult have manufactured consent to their arbitrary point system by telling us knee reaping is somehow unjust and dangerous. This is does not withstand the light of empiracal data. Ultimately the real reason they ban knee reaps is they think that it is not conducive to good grappling. That might be right for them but is it right for you? I don't know man I ain't you. "[i]t is revolting to have no better reason for a rule of law than that so it was laid down in the time of Henry IV.""or in this case by "Henry IV". Its like the government man. They tell you the sky is blue. It ain't always blue. I seen green sky, lavender sky all sorts of sky. And that is just here on Earth. I've never seen the sky on Nibiru. The sky could be paraffin with technicolor inserted in the center. Man if you don't like being back mounted then don't be back mounted but don't stay there because you don't want to be there not because the Gracie Cultist have told you not to be there. If your like me and see a lavender sky once in awhile. Stay there and take that ankle home if you want. Do as thy will not as you been told to do. The knee reaping rule is there simply to impose their belief system on us the American people.

      Ulimately this is about how you want grappling to evolve in AMERICA not Brazil. Will we bare our necks to the Brazlian globalists? There is a war on your mind and if you don't know it then you are bound to lose that war. [I]t is revolting to have no better reason for a rule of law than that it was laid down in the time of Henry IV. It is still more revolting if the grounds upon which it was laid down have vanished long since, and the rule simply persists through blind imitation of the past. That is Oliver Wendall Holmes my friend. What if the inverse is true and new grounds have been built to validate the rules? What if jiu jitsu has not evolved? What if supposedly superior techniques are simply better for the rule set that has been imposed on us? A Man's mind stretched to a new idea never goes back to its original dimensions and I long ago was exposed to the teachings of Bruce Lee who said showed us fluidity of thought is essential to our cultivation as martial artists and men. I propose that if grappling was still used for self defense or people competed on hard ground for submissions only, the grappling of today would look no different than that of 100 years ago. Long accepted notions regarding technique would be tossed aside and what is regarded as near canon would be exposed as simply opinion formed by perception. If you accept as valid, Baret's approach of showing me a set of techniques which is far different than what he shows Sergio or Danny due to us having temperaments, physical attributes and girths, you must accept what is a good position for you may be a bad position for me and vice versa. If the prior statement is true why should a position be judged as categorically superior? If it is just as a capitulation to authority then your mind as already been fettered and only by accepting a individuals reality is a relative construct based on his perceptions being applied to prion reality can his mind be set free.

      Stop Brazilian influence on our American way of life and sign this petition.

      There should be constant warnings instead of dq.
