Slamming will result in an automatic DQ. There are no exceptions to this rule. Takedowns are NOT considered slams but you MUST deliver your opponent to the mat safely to the mat. 6) All matted areas will be thoroughly disinfected before the tournament; therefore no outdoor footwear will be permitted on any of the matted areas for the duration of the day.

If the competitors near the edge of the mat, they will be restarted from the same position, unless the referee is unable to duplicate the position for any reason. In case the referee is unable to duplicate the position, the competitors will restart from a standing position. 10) If a competitor flees the ring when a submission is locked in and the competitor is obviously fleeing to avoid submission, he or she will be automatically disqualified. 11) Women will not be permitted to compete in Men’s divisions.

SUB7 RULES SUBMISSION GRAPPLING RULES: 1) No grabbing of any clothing, including your own, will be permitted. 2) The only submissions below the waist legal for the beginners division are straight ankle locks (AKA straight foot locks) and knee bars. 3) Wrist locks will not be permitted at beginner level. 4) Neck cranks, spine locks, figure4s, heel hooks and flying scissor take downs are not permitted in any categories. 5) All competitors must wear a mouthguard/gumshield.

All long/loose hair must be tied back (For both Men and Women.). 6) Anyone who is a blue belt or above in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu MUST compete in the advanced category. There will be no exceptions to this rule. MATCH LENGTHS: All matches will consist of 2 minutes no points scoring straight into 4 minutes points scoring. This will total in 6 minutes per match. Only legal submissions and referee stoppages will end the match before the 6 minutes is up. Should the score be equal at the end of the 6minute match, the competitors will be given a 1 minute rest followed by an additional minute of competing. The winner will then be decided via a ‘sudden death’ points scoring system, meaning the first competitor to score points or sub their opponent during that time will take the win. Should there still be no score after the full 7 minutes; advantages will be used as a tiebreaker. The referee will score advantages in the event of a near submission or score (near takedowns, near guardpasses, etc.) The referee’s decision is final.
