Point System: Takedown 2 – Sweep 2 – Pass Guard 3 – Mount 4 – Back Mount with hooks or triangle 4, Referee will not award points until they feel control is completely established. No “advantages,” you must score real points to win,  No “knee on belly” points.

Tie-Breaking: Because we do not use advantages or referee decision, occasionally a match will end with a tie in points. In this case, competitors will fight in Overtime. Overtime can be won by 1st takedown ONLY. This can be a very exciting period in the match, so remember to work on your Take Downs!

Other Special Rules: This is our version of a Double Elimination Tournament, in which we guarantee at least 2 matches. A double- elimination tournament is a type of tournament in which a participant will have another match, regardless of the outcome of their 1st match, which stands to contrast to single elimination tournaments, in which in only one defeat, a competitor is eliminated from the tournament. Although some double elimination formats allow for an athlete to lose a match and still take 1st; at Subfighter, if you have lost a match, you are then dropped in to the consolation bracket meaning the best you can place is then 3rd.

(Only exception is if your 1st loss is in the medal round for 1st/2nd, then you would take 2nd)

We will do our best to separate competitors from the same school, however in the event that competitors are from the same school, and the coach does not wish them to compete against each other, a winner must be declared & decided upon in the staging area, prior to competitors being sent to the mat. This will automatically give one student a loss for that round, which could result in elimination based on prior matches. No matches will result in a tie. Referee’s reserve the right to stop the match at any time, as safety is a main priority. A decision involving a referee's judgement is not to be questioned. We want this to be fun, safe, and exciting experience for everyone!

Competitor Etiquette: You are being held to a higher standard as a competitor, because it is You that determines the quality & success of the tournament. You must show respect to all other competitors, coaches, teams, the referee's & tournament staff at all times. Verbal disrespect or aggressive actions towards anyone will be grounds for disqualification from the tournament & No Refund will be given. No Sandbagging, if you train or have trained another discipline (wrestling, boxing, etc) that should be taken into consideration when selecting your experience level. If you are a professional athlete or fighter, do NOT sign up for beginner divisions.

Coaches Etiquette: You are allowed to coach your athlete as much as you'd like, however NO derogatory or disrespectful remarks about any other competitor, coach, team, referee, or staff member will be allowed at Any time. As a coach, it is up to you to demonstrate respect for all different teachings and styles, and your students will follow. A decision involving a referee's judgement is not to be questioned. Technical questions (points not awarded, points awarded to wrong competitor, or other scoreboard issue) can be asked politely & respectively, however the referee makes the final decision.

Spectator Etiquette: All spectators are welcome & encouraged to cheer on their athlete, however we will not tolerate any booing or disrespectful remarks towards other competitors, coaches, spectators, referee's, or other tournament staff. All spectators are allowed to film and/or take pictures from the stands, but are not allowed on the mats or in the competition area. Only competitors, coaches, referee's & tournament staff are allowed on the mat area.

*We reserve the right to combine or mix n match weight/experience divisions, in order to bracket effectively. Although we guarantee at least 2 matches, it is not unusual for some competitors to get 3-5 matches, All for our low registration price!
