There are no points or advantage points calculated for any positions/moves.
For our kids safety, referees are instructed to stop a match before a full submission is in place. In case of a tap or referee stoppage the match will stop, reset to standing position, restart and continue until the 4 minutes are up.
All matches will be 4 minutes.
The children will compete with each other and the best part is, everyone will come out a First Place Winner =)
The Gracie Kids Worlds has been carefully designed to be a multi-cultural learning experience and to allow children the opportunity to exhibit their skills in an atmosphere of cooperation and respect for fellow participants. This event provides competitors the opportunity to build confidence that will last a lifetime.
One of the greatest attributes of this system is that it provides participants with the opportunity to perform under pressure in a safe and positive setting.
All brackets will run under a round robin system.
All kids within a bracket will compete against each other. If there is only one child in a bracket, they will be tested in some of their skills.
These submission attempts will result in IMMEDIATE disqualification.
