I talk to Robert Degle. A blackbelt in BJJ, was recently banned from competing in the black belt division by the IBJJF due to not having enough time registered as a brown belt before being promoted to black belt. Yet we discuss why he thinks the IBJJF has an overall net positive influence on the sport. From the prestige of its competition circuit to the rules and points system that he believes forces a general well-rounded jiu-jitsu game regardless of gi or no-gi competitions. An interesting take on how an external organisation’s influence over a sport can affect individual competitors’ actions.
