Eight, 5-grappler teams will compete (10 grapplers total can be entered on a roster, but only 5 will compete in each team match). Extra roster spots are substitutes for injury or for strategy. Teams may use a different lineup each match and do not need to declare which grapplers will compete in each weight class until immediately before each individual match.

• Lightweight (155 lb.)

• Welterweight (170 lb.)

• Middleweight (185 lb.)

• Light-Heavyweight (205 lb.)

• Heavyweight (265 lb.)

2 Brown Belts maximum may compete in the 5 matches, Unlimited Purple and Blue Belts. No Black Belts.


There will be 5 matches in each Team v. Team match, 1 match in each weight class, starting at Lightweight and finishing with Heavyweight. The winner of the match will receive points for his team based upon method of victory; the loser will not receive any points for his team. The team with the most points after all 5 matches will be declared the winner.

Team Scoring

Points from individual matches will be awarded to the team as follows:

• 3 points for decision by 8 points or less;

• 4 points for decision by 9 points or more;

• 6 points for submission; and

• 6 points for injury default, disqualification, or forfeit.

Team Scoring Example:

Blue Team v. Red Team

• 155- Sam (Blue) Dec. Fred (Red) 6-2. Team score- Blue 3, Red 0

• 170- Miguel (Blue) Sub Carlos (Red). Team score- Blue 9, Red 0

• 185- Brad (Red) Sub Peter (Blue). Team score- Blue 9, Red 6

• 205- Alex (Red) Dec. Shawn (Blue) 14-3. Team score- Blue 9, Red 10

• 265- Chris (Blue) Sub David (Red). Team score- Blue 15, Red 10


If team score is tied after all 5 matches, the tie-breaker is the team with the most submissions, the 2nd tie-breaker is the team with most wins.

Grappler Match Assignments and declaration of Gi or No-Gi Match

A coin flip will determine which team will send out the first grappler and choose whether that individual match is Gi or No-Gi. After the first grappler checks in as the competitor for that weight class, the 2nd team will send out its grappler. After the first grappler checks in, there is no changing of grappler by the first team. The process is alternated between each team, each individual match.

Competitors must be an active member at the gym location. Grapplers who occasionally visit may not compete for that team (no super teams).
