    Why is the reason 12-6 elbows are not allowed by nevada? They are used in muay thai and they can be super useful in GnP.

    Because karate guys used to snap fake wood boards with 12-6 elbows and idiot people in power thought you could snap a head in half with the same technique.

    Basically.

    "One, the primary reason, was concern about a fighter on his back and another fighter dropping a straight elbow down to the orbital area," Lembo said.

    "The secondary reason was if you had fighters who were mismatched in height, and you had the taller fighter coming straight down with an elbow on the shorter fighter, to the spine region," Lembo added. "But that’s a secondary reason."

    The oft-spoken of Karate BS is a Rogan fanfare pile of BS.

    Show your case to the commission. Not me.

    I think the rule is bullshit.

    Ask Joe Rogan
    I'm sure he would be happy to tell you.

    Rogan has said that the ban was developed after a demonstration by a martial artist breaking blocks of ice with elbow strikes.

    They were usurped by Corey Anderson's far superior 25/8 elbows.

    Just ban elbow 12-6 strikes to the eye with elbows. Problem solved. All other areas off limit like spine and throat are good enough. 12-6 will be legalised soon enough but I bet they address the eye concern.

    We need 12-6 elbows except to eye socket, upkicks, and knees to head anywhere
