    Hi, it's already going to cost me 40 in petrol for the round trip. I just wondered, if I have another off day and get tapped in my first 2 matches, by guillotine in the first 10 seconds, while trying to get a take down. Would you be willing to refund the 38 entrance fee?

    I just noticed it was more expensive than paying for 'attend all classes / train as much as you want' 1 months membership at most mma gyms in the UK. Or is there a seminar or 1 hour private lesson with a world class grappler included in that price? Let me know so I can decide whether it is worth spending my 80, 2 months training budget on your event or having to give it a miss this time.

    Cheers

    How come the no groin guard rule is still in there? I don't understand why a piece of safety equipment is outlawed on the event? I've not seen any evidence to say that wearing a groin guard causes injury, are you able to provide any?

    You've got far more dangerous techniques in there, I can do toe holds, bicep slicers and neck cranks but can't protect myself?

    and if you'd been able to verify your rank and do the IBJJF nogi european you'd encounter the same rule
    man, when you're the nail, hang in there....until the day you become the hammer

    Hi Rob.

    Thanks for your concerns, the UMA do not allow the Athletes to wear a groin guard at any of our Grappling or Groundfighting Championship Events, for safety reasons, even though, as you mentioned, the groin guard is a piece of safety equipment.

    The UMA have had this ruling in place ever since the first UMA British Open 'No Gi' Grappling Championships back in 2007, and is non negotiable, sorry to dissapoint you on this issue.

    Hi Boult.

    Thankyou for your concerns, however and just in case you did not scroll all the way down to the registration page, or maybe you misssed it in some way, it does explain that if you register before the early registration date closes, the registration and entry fee is 25 + paypal fee, however, should you decide not to enter once early registration closes, but then change your mind and do want to enter and compete after early registration closes, you can still do so, but then the late registration will be in place and the entry fee will be 35 + paypal fee. We hope you do decide to enter, and if so, we recommend you enter as soon as you can whilst you are able to pay less for early registration, if you do not wish to enter either way, then it is our loss and not yours.

    they add extra leverage to triangles, armbars and controling the back, you also don't need them nearly as much when you're not allowed to strike

    Where's the proof they cause injuries though? That's what I'm after, if someone's better than you and has you in a submission then a bit of extra leverage is minor.

    I doubt the ibjjf have any proof of cause of injuries they just felt like doing it and because they're the ibjjf they can do whatever they like. I'd be interested to see what reason the uma has got for applying the same rule.

    I know it's ibjjf rule could remember the number of it the other day when I looked it up. Thanks for the concern about verifying my rank but I was able to compete at the euro's if I'd needed to but decided against it.
