One coach decides to give up the fight.

The referee decides to disqualify a fighter.

The referee decides that one of the fighters is not able to continue the fight.

The referee decides that the current situation poses an unbearable threat to the health of one or both fighters.

In beginner class referees might decide to stop a fight rather early in order to keep the fighters and their health safe. If you are not OK with this, please register for advanced class.

In regular time:

One of the fighters submits verbally or through double tap on his opponent, himself or the mat. Loud expression of pain is recognized as a verbal submission.



The referee tosses a coin. The winning fighter chooses to start from „backmount“ or „spiderweb“ and takes the dominant position.

The referee starts the fight and a timer. The time will be stopped either if there is a submission or when the fighter in the non-dominant position has escaped.

The fighters switch position and the fight is restarted. If the submitting fighter started from the non-dominant position, the fight ends immediately.


There was exactly one submission: The dominating fighter wins.

There were two submissions: The fighter who was able to dominate the fastest wins the fight.

There was no submission and the round cap is not reached: There will be another round.

There was no submission and the round cap is reached: All escape times will be added and the fighter who took the least amount of time to escape wins. In case the time cap was reached as well, a ref decision will take place.
