This is why you need to pay attention to what you read, folks. Particularly around the first of April.
Someone wrote an article on April 1st about IBJJF allowing heel hooks and reaping-and not bring fully caffeinated and alert, decided to share that post. It sounded a little fishy to me, so I checked the IBJJF website- no mention.
I went back to the article and then I saw the date it was published- April 1st.
Moral of the story- read critically, and always check for primary sources.
