10th Planet Jiu -Jitsu founder Eddie Bravo has got plans to introduce more strikes to his “Combat Jiu-Jitsu” event, which currently allows open palm strikes to the head and body.
Posting to his team’s forum, Bravo revealed the introduction of upkicks is to promote more grappling — and not more striking.
“I’m working on getting upkicks allowed, gonna run it by the commission,” Bravo wrote. “Some competitors were feeling too comfortable standing over their opponent who was in open guard. Allowing upkicks will force the guy standing to get down and pass the guard”.
