The 2010 West Coast Submissions Championship takes place in the Richmond Sports Club on Saturday, February 12th, 2011.
The weight-ins will start at 9:00am and all fights start at 10:00am.
As soon as the BJJ divisions conclude the BJJ No-Gi divisions will start. Every competitor will fight up to 10 times opponents of varying skill levels.
Matches will start from standing. Fighters who move onto or outside the border when standing can (at the discretion of the referee) be restarted in the centre of the mat. If fighters move outside the area while on the ground (both fighters have at least one knee down) then the action is frozen and they are moved back to the centre of the mat in their current position.
Deliberately or repeatedly moving outside the area will be considered as stalling and will be treaded like a foul.
Please note that we have updated our weight categories to comply with the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation and that the SAME weight divisions apply to No-Gi and Gi (not worn at weight in) divisions. No hard cups, braces, or earguards are allowed in either division. BJJ competitors have to wear a clean, untorn gi with no T-shirt or rash guard under it. All BJJ No-Gi competitors have to wear shorts and a T-shirt or rash guard, no exceptions.
Ways to win:
Submission (physical and/or verbal)
Referees Stoppage (medical or rule infringement)
Corner stops fight
There will be one 4 minute round per bout.
Illegal Techniques :
Kicking or punching, gouging (including any pressure on eye socket, armpit or ribs), any foot attack other than straight footlocks, any leg attack other than straight kneebars, wrist locks, twisting or compression of the neck and/or spine, small joint manipulations, knee or elbow slicers, point of elbow pressure, grabbing the throat, scissor takedowns, body slams or suplex throws, deliberately moving outside the designated mat area, stalling or refusing to engage with an opponent or trying to alter the outcome of a match without a fight!
Only soft cups, ear guars and braces of any kind are permitted due to safety consideration of the other competitors. Committing 2 fouls in a match result in an automatic loss. However, the referee has discretion to disqualify a competitor immediately after a serious, dangerous or deliberate foul. The referee can stop or restart a match at any time if he considers it necessary for safety reasons. The referee’s decision is final and non-negotiable.
Fighters fight in a round-robin within their weight category. 3 points are awarded for a win, 1 point each for a draw (i.e. no decision or stoppage by end of time) and 0 points for a loss. At the end of the round robin the fighters with the highest scores wins. Medals will be awarded to the winner and runner-up for each category.
