Thread: Grappling comp May 9th Chippenham FREE ENTRY

Hybrid View

    Default Grappling comp May 9th Chippenham FREE ENTRY

    Yep, free entry to my first grappling comp. It will be held in my gym, so I'm just wondering how well the venue will hold up to a competition.

    Weight divisions:-
    Adults
    Open weight/Absolute
    -93
    -84
    -77
    -70
    -65

    Women will probably have to be open weight. If you won't compete against someone over a certain size, let me know

    I might add experience classes if I get enough entries. I may also merge the 65 and 70 divisions if i don't have enough entries but I will let you know a week in advance so you can adjust your weight

    Kids (under 16)
    +50
    -50
    -40
    -30
    -25
    -20
    kids submission division (open weight)

    might add more if I get enough entries

    0.5kg allowance for your crappy scales (mine are accurate ). Weigh-ins at 9-9.30, comp starts at 10. If you are late, you may not be entered in to your division (you can still jump in the absolute). Divisions limited to 8 competitors, first come first serve

    Rules
    No subs for kids except in the kids sub division
    Any choke
    Any armlock
    25 second hold down wins match
    No twisting leg/ankle locks. Figure four ankle locks (toe holds) are allowed
    No spine/neck locks/cranks (including twister, stocks and can opener). A rough guillotine will be allowed
    No slams over 6 inches (ref's judgement). If you are lifted over 6 inches, you have to let go and restart in guard
    No normal dirty stuff (striking, eye gouging, pinching, hair pulling etc). If you are unsure about a technique, ask me and I will tell you if your dirty tactic is allowed

    Points
    Takedown - 2
    Clean takedown - 4
    Mount - 2
    Knee on belly - 2
    Take the back with hooks or body triangle (must be properly on back) - 2
    Sweep from guard or half guard - 2
    Pulling guard/half guard - minus 1 unless significant sub attempt within 3 seconds
    Reversal from mount/side control - 0
    No points scored if significant sub attempt is made during transition. Significant sub attempt is at ref's discretion
    Positions must be held for 3 seconds. Points must be scored for something else before they can be awarded for the same position again

    Everyone will have to sign a waiver
    My gym is not very big, so space will be given to competitors first. Spectators may not get access

    Rounds will be 4 mins with 1 min over time and will all be knockout tournament format. If numbers are low, I might do a round robin

    Because I will be losing money, I probably won't have much in the way of medals or trophies. Winners can feel free to buy their own

    If you wish to enter, email me at leighremedios@gmail.com with the division you wish to enter and your experience level (+/- 2 years). If I do experience divisions, sandbaggers may or may not be moved into another division (including putting you up a weight class) but you will almost certainly be ripped and taunted by me

    Entries by May 2nd, so I can let people know if I'm merging/splitting divisions. Entries after that will cost a tenner as a laziness tax

    Any questions or feedback are welcomed

    *edits

    -65 and -70 are definitely separate weight classes

    2 matches guaranteed, as I'll match up those who lose in the first round

    No -100kg division

    New -25kg and -20kg division for kids

    Fortitude Apparel T-shirt prizes for :-

    * Best submission (judged by me)
    * Fastest submission
    * Winner of absolute division

    25 second hold down wins match

    Cheers guys. My biggest concern is pull outs as competitors put no money down. But I'll take people on their word
