Jeff Glover — one of the most exciting players in the BJJ game — is not a big fan of Break Point gear.
“Shame on break point gear,” Glover said in a Facebook post earlier this morning. “I never liked their ugly ass cloths and gis anyway. Don’t try to scam the jiu jitsu community son…You will be exposed real quick.”
Break Point was accused in the post’s thread of forcing children to buy gis at their competitions. According to the individual posting, those who did not buy them were disqualified.
Break Point was also accused of posing as a concerned parent on Reddit:
Its very sad that in a small sport community there is so much hate for the competition and i dont mean on the mat. We all are here and doing these extra things for the love of our sport, so it can grow and improve and all there is is fighting among the different federations ( again not on the mat) Are certain businesses that afraid of a lil competition? I have seen nothing but bad mouthing from other federations like from people at Newaza / dream tournaments. We are all here for the love of the sport whether you prefer certain brands over others is one thing, but to hope and wish failure on others is not what I thought the BJJ community was about. I started Bjj with my son and met my husband thru it, it has always seemed like such a family environment till today.
