    BJJ Rules

    Hello, I am a BJJ Blue Belt from Stockholm Sweden. A friend of mine competed in the recent European Open Championships but was sadly eliminated in the first round. His opponent did a few things that I thought was reason for disqualification. Could you guys tell me why I am wrong. The referee is the headreferee for the European Championships so it is probably me who doesn't understand the rules.



    It's the fight between White and Blue (My guy)

    I thought:

    That you are disqualified if you slam (twice)

    That you lose two points when warned the second time

    Slams happen at around 2:20

    A video would likely be helpful.

    Wow. Those hardly even qualify as slams any more. Those are ridiculous and there should have been something said, at the very least. Was this event using IBJJF rules?

    How is it not a slam? (No, seriously...)

    Slams have always been defined by my instructors as picking up a downed opponent up off the mat in order to return them there with force.

    Not a slam, you attempted to stand up he carried the double leg up and back down. If he attempted to accelerate your decent= slam. He let gravity carry you both down.

    That was a lifted double.

    The distinction you're talking about has nothing to do with what IBJJF rules call a slam. A "slam" is lifting a guy from a grounded position (usually the guard) and dropping him back down.

    Those weren't slams because your friend was in the process of returning to his feet and his opponent took him back down, which you can do as hard as you like. For it to be a slam he has to pick him up from guard, not just accelerate him as he stands up under his own power.

    Not entirely true but that's semantics.
