Written by Ari Taub

April 14, 2009

Hard Knocks intends to suggest some rule changes for amateur MMA in Alberta.

Based on the first Hard Knocks event and recent decisions made by the Calgary Combative Commission as set forth in their March meeting minutes, Hard Knocks thinks the rules should be modified as follows:

1] each round should be shortened from 5 minutes to 4 minutes;
2] the rest period between rounds should be increased from 60 seconds to 90 seconds;
3] twisting leg locks should be banned;
4] blood tests should be valid for 6 months; and
5] a syphilis test should be required.
