Illegal Knee Draws A BJJ B*tchslap (Video)
When I think of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, I often tend to think of two fighters rolling around on a mat in an effort to gain a dominant ground position, while attempting to apply joint-locks and chock holds when the opportunity arises. Rarely, if ever, do I think of knees and slaps as part of a BJJ fighter’s repertoire, but that appeared to be the case during this competitive bout, as one combatant accidentally (we assume) landed an illegal knee to the face of his opponent, who retaliated with an open-handed slap to the face.
If you were ever wondering which of the two illegal moves is frowned upon more in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the answer appears to be the b*itchslap, rather than the knee. We have drawn that conclusion based on the judge’s decision to disqualify the slapper, and not his opponent, in this bout.
