Advantages count towards the match
if the score is tied at the end of regulation. All actions and positions must

guard is pulled points for a takedown will be awarded.

Valid Submission Attempt- 1 point



 



Illegal Techniques:



No neck cranks



No heel hooks (except advanced division)



No bicep or calf cutter (except intermediate and advanced
division)



Other illegal techniques for all divisions:



No striking, biting, eye gouging (Includes chin to eye),
small joint manipulation (finger and toe locks), hair pulling, or ear pulling.
No fish hooking or fingers in an orifice.



No intentional lifting up and slamming your opponent.



 



Referee’s call stands



 



Good sportsmanship is expected.



 



 



 



Ways To Win (standard
bracket no-gi):



 



Via tap out either physically or verbally or the opponent
cannot continue



Via points



Via advantages if the score is tied



Via disqualification



Via referee’s decision after overtime



 



Disqualification:



 



A competitor may be disqualified for any of the illegal
techniques listed above if deemed intentional. In a case where a competitor
cannot continue due to an illegal technique applied, the offending grappler
will be disqualified.



 



Stalling:



 



Stalling is called by the referee anytime a competitor is
deemed to be passive by avoiding action or backing out of bounds. The referee
will give one official warning for the first offense, followed by 1 point
deduction for the second offense, 2 point deduction for the third offense, and
disqualification on the fourth offense. 

Note: Controlling an opponent in an established grappling position e.g. mount, side control, knee on belly, etc. is NOT stalling, its grappling. 



 



Restarts will be in the same position in the middle of the
mat.



 



Fleeing submission by running out of bounds will result in a
2 point deduction for first offense. The competitors will be restarted in the
center of the mat in the same position/submission. Fleeing a submission out of
bounds a second time will result in disqualification.



 



Overtime:



 



If the score including advantages is tied at the end of the
round, the match will go into overtime. Overtime will be limited to a 3 minute
round (scored like a normal round, starting from the standing position). At the
end of overtime if the score is still tied there will be a sudden victory round
where the first competitor to score will win the match.



 



*If a match needs overtime or sudden victory rounds there
will be a 90 second rest between each round.



 



Hygiene:



 



At weigh-ins all competitors will be checked for
communicable diseases, not limited to but including ringworm and bacterial
infections. Fingernails and toenails should be neatly trimmed. No part of the
body should have any sticky or oily substance.



 



Competitors
Attire:



 



Well-fitting t-shirts or rash guard, Board shorts (no
pockets), Gi pants. In No-Gi, competitors may not grab or hold onto opponents clothing.
Competitors are not allowed to wear a rashguard under a t shirt as this lends
an unfair advantage and adds to elusiveness. Be cool, this is not a tense, uber-competitive tourney. We are honoring one of our fallen brothers and our jobs are tough enough  as it is so the #1 rule is: Be Humble, its not that serious I promise.
