The simple thing to check is clutch adjustment. Does your clutch pedal go almost to the floor before you feel tension? If so, then a clutch adjustment(Cable style) should cure the problem. If your clutch is hydraulic and not cable, then you may have a bad slave cylinder or air in the line. Chris put in a new throw out bearing

What is a reverse clutch?

A reverse clutch setup is when the clutch assembly is normally in the "release" or "free" mode when at rest, as opposed to the usual "normally-engaged" arrangement. In other words, the spring is pushing to dis-engage the clutch and pedal pressure is required to connect the engine to the rest of the drive train. In a normal automotive clutch system, the driver has to push in the pedal to release the clutch, then let go of the pedal to engage it.
