    I heard about this, but can anyone confirm?

    Is the standard patch on the leg of the vulkan gis in fact illegal in IBJJF competitions?

    Thanks

    i used a vulkan gi at the pan ams and i didnt get any grief for the patch. pretty sure it has to be covering the knee, which it clearly doesnt.

    Thats what I thought.

    Well, either way, to those that have these gis - are the patches easy to remove?
