    Muscle crushes allowed?

    Why cant the rules be more in favour of the person wanting to submit the other person, as it stands its very bjj'y.

    People aren't going to want to go for submissions if they have scored a few points taking a position.

    tbh it will make it a boring comp if people are more concerned about securing a few positions than actually going for something and making it entertaining.

    If I score a double leg in my first match I'm just gonna lay in side control / scarf and coast for the win LOL

    Joking but like Chris says this is gonna happen a lot now especially as its knockouts, who is gonna want to give up a good position and a move into the next round just to go for a sub you might not get ?

    yep, basically i have just had the same conversation wish fisher.

    Sorry but it makes for boring matches

    Chris you have heard my plan then if we meet in absolute shud we both place in our catergories.

    I lay and pray like a lioness

    Its up to the other person to know how to escape positions, it takes just as much skill to escape than it does to submit.

    it is NOGI chris, couldnt be any less bjj'y......

    listen i tried judges deisions last time this time i want to try points. whats the problem, play your normal game and go for submission.

    im sorry i cant do rounds but last year i had a total of about 50 competitors in 7 categories + absolute and it lasted hours, this year i have about 70+ pre entries and more promising to turn up on the day. I would love to make it rounds but there simply isnt time.

    surely when the fight goes to the ground and maybe no advancement of position is attempted, the fighters would be stood up again ?
