    The U.M.A. Grappling Championships are unique where as all matches are 3 minuntes in duration, so you have to act and get down to business immedaitely, there is no time to stall, sit back, wait and try to take your time etc, you just don't have the time to do that, so it definately puts everyone to the test.

    As others who have Competed at our No Gi Grappling Championships in December 2007 will inform you, its fast, competitive, technical, skillfull, and very exciting, the adrenalin fix and buzz you get putting it all on the line in such a short space of time on the mat is phenomenal, it is an Event you definatly don't want to miss.

    Whether your a Novice or Seasoned Competitor, you'll have a great chance of being up there mixing it and rolling with some of the best in the U.K. today.

    Hi, yes you are allowed to stand up to stack, pass guard etc, I feel that a lot of people are possibly or may get our Grappling Rules confused with our Groundfighting Rules, however, no probs, happy to help and answer any question from everyone, here to help etc.
