Event Details

SUBMISSION ONLY EVENT !!!

 

POINTS

There are no points or advantage points calculated for any positions/moves.


MATCH LENGTH

All Matches - 15 min
Finals - no time limit


MATCH OUTCOME

SUBMISSION
An athlete must submit their opponent within the 15 minute time limit to win the match and advance in the bracket.

TIE
In case of a tie neither athlete will advance in the bracket. 

*Remember that the essence of Jiu-Jitsu is self defense. If one competitor attacks the whole time they are amazing for doing so. If the opponent defends the entire time and was never submitted, that makes them a great student for surviving and defending themselves well in the name of Jiu-Jitsu. Therefore in the case of a tie both competitors will be out of the event. They will both survive to live another day =)


ILLEGAL SUBMISSIONS

These submission attempts will result in IMMEDIATE disqualification.

(Just because I will not allow these techniques for the safety of our competitos I still highly recomend you learn how to defend them at your school =)
