IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL DIVISIONS
We expect all competitors to act in a sportsman like fashion at all times. If you lock in a submission do not apply it instantly trying to force a tap but look at the referee to make sure he recognizes the submission and give him a chance to step in to break off the fight even if your opponent does not tap.
EQUIPMENT AND ATTIRE
• Competitors must wear a BJJ uniform (BJJ) or shorts and t-shirt/rashguard (Submission Grappling and Stand-Up Sparring) that is tight fitting, clean, odor free and in good condition. (Inappropriate language or imagery is unacceptable). Mouth guards are recommended and hard groin protection are prohibited in Grappling
• All competitors must wear Kickboxing Gloves provided by the tournament.
• It is mandatory to wear the following protective equipment for Kickboxing and
No-Face Multiple Martial Arts fighters need to wear (provided by the competitor): tight fitting headgear (test by shaking your head), mouth guard, groin protection (mandatory for all males), Shin & Instep pads
Anytime a competitor is in danger of injury the referee will step in to prevent any harm to the fighter but we rely on your sense of fair play in order to prevent injuries and allow the opponent to continue to compete. Please remember, that this also protects you when you are caught in a submission.
Kids (15 and under) matches are stopped immediately when one of the competitors is in a position to submit, i.e. an Armbar is fully locked in. Teen and adult competitors will be given a little more time to defend but this is 100% up to the discretion of the referee as his primary task is to prevent injury and keep all competitors safe. If you lose your fight because the referee steps in please remember that he is there to protect you from injury and that you should have not ended up in a position where your opponent can lock in a submission in the first place.
We reserve the right to create all divisions based on sex, age, skill and weight. Please remain in the competitor area once your divisions starts because the fights happen quickly. If your name is called and you are not responding, we will move on to the next fight. After the fight ends we will call your name again. If you are still not responding your opponent will be awarded an automatic win. Tell the score keeper if you are not available to fight temporarily or altogether.
We are offering Points-Only divisions for four, five and six-year-old children and Submission-Only divisions age six and up. That means that only six-year-old kids (or kids close to it in age) can choose to compete in either, Points-Only divisions or Submissions-Only divisions.
We are especially committed to supporting all female competitors and our goal is to get you as many fights in as fair as possible divisions. We will create divisions for females teens and adults whenever possible. If that is not possible, you will have the option to either get a full refund or to enter a mixed division with males of equal strength and skill and with all females in this divisions fighting for their own medal rank unless they win the mixed division.
—> 3 points are awarded for a win, 1 each for a tie and 0 points for a loss. A Submission or disqualification automatically determines the winner of a match.
—> At the end of the Round Robin the three fighters with the highest points are awarded the Gold, Silver and Bronze medals accordingly.
—> For a 2 fighter draw in the medal ranks, the competitor who won the match between each other is the winner. If there is no decision by the end of regulation time, the match will go into the tie-breaker round with a coin toss deciding who will get the back mount/seatbelt position first. The first opponent tries to submit while the second opponent tries to escape the rear mount while being timed. Next, the opponents reverse the roles and the one opponent who escapes or submits the other one first wins.
—> For a 3+ fighter draw, the matches won/lost between the tied competitors is compared and if there is still a tie, a comparison is made score between the remaining tied competitors. If the score is still tied the 2 fighter draw solution listed above will be applied.
Beginner/ Novice– Any competitor with less of two years experience is considered a Novice
Intermediate– Any competitor with more than two but less than four years experience is in these divisions
