Just read the selective enforcement letter you sent to Mr Bramlette threatening to fine him $5,000.00 if he held a light contact no head striking martial arts tournament while you have allowed and still allow kids as young as 4 years old fight in karate, kung fu, tae kwon do, judo, jiu jitsu, sambo, wrestling etc where they strike the head and can win by knockout or submission to openly go on with no regulation, license or harassment from the state of Texas. 
1. Correction to paragraph 1. First of all Brazilian Style Pankration is not a combative sport. It is a light contact Martial Art that you can only win by submission or submission attempts. Similar to Judo, and Jiu Jitsu tournaments which you don’t over see or regulate. There are no head strikes or any type of knockout allowed. Any intentional head strike will cause immediate disqualification. Striking is controlled and only used to set up for a submission attempt or submission. 
2. Correction to paragraph 2. Here you say that you regulate Pankration. Yes you regulate head striking Pankration which is open hand strikes to the head which is also Questionable. But this is not Brazilian style Pankration. Once again we do not strike the head. 
3. Correction to paragraph 3. Here you mention Professional Martial Arts need regulation. Well Brazilian Style Pankration is not Professional it is only amateur.
4. Correction to paragraph 4. Under Texas law it says you regulate full contact. Brazilian Style Pankration is not full contact it is light contact, no head strikes and controlled body strikes where you win by submission similar to Judo and Jiu Jitsu which you don’t regulate.
5. Correction to paragraph 5. Here you say based on information and belief Texas Take over is a full contact event and needs regulation. Well where is the full contact? How can no head striking, controlled striking to the body to open up for submission be full contact. Where is the full contact? Is it the controlled striking with no head shots allowed or is it the submission? If it is the striking then all Karate, Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do is then also in violation. If it is the submission then all Judo, Jiu Jitsu, Sambo, Wrestling etc are in violation of Texas law. You can not selective enforce.
6. Correction to paragraph 6. Here you say kids can’t compete in this light contact Martial Art Brazilian Pankration Now you are violating the kids of Pankration civil rights. The rights to compete equally as all the other kids in Texas have as young as four years old in there style of martial arts. Kids as young as 4 years old are competing somewhere in Texas everyday or weekend. Huge civil rights violation.
7. Here you say kids under the age of 17 are not allowed to be licensed or compete in this light contact no head striking event. While you allow kids as young as 4 compete with no need of a license everyday somewhere in Texas. Now you are clearly violating our Pankration kids civil rights. And should be held liable.
8. Here you now threaten to fine us $5,000.00 per day if not licensed. Well first of all you have no arrest or fine authority on a light contact martial art. So either send out a new letter allowing us to compete equally with all other Martial Arts or start enforcing equally to all styles of Martial Arts in Texas.
First one will be the one you are allowing on the Same day June 27th with kids as young as 7 years old and no license. Equal justice or equal rights. I request by law the public records act the letter you sent this other tournament denying there event also.
