Overtime

Overtime The outcome for overtime is uniform for ALL DIVISIONS for GI, NOGI and Adult Absolute Divisions. All matches will have a 3 Minute time period. Please note that during overtime, you may win by a submission, the first one to score 2 or more points, or a referee decision. In an effort to keep each match fast paced and aggressive, an opponent may pull guard, but if you pull guard in overtime, the referee will award your opponent 1 point. You will not have lost the match, but if for some reason, you ended up standing again, and you were to pull guard again, your opponent would be awarded a 2nd point resulting in end of the match. The stalling rule will be enforced with ZERO tolerance. The referee will give you 1 warning. If you are called for a second warning, the match will be immediately stopped and the referee will automatically give the opponent 2 points resulting in in the loss of the match.

Common Submission Allowed in all divisions.

  • Arm Bars
  • Gi Chokes
  • Key Locks (Americana-Kimura)

Safety of Athletes

The safety of our competitors is of the utmost importance. Grappling X will make every effort to ensure that a safe environment for all athletes is provided. Keeping this in mind, the referee retains the right to call a stop to any match at any time. If a submission is locked in the referee may tap out for the competitor in order to avoid injury. In the kids divisions once a joint lock is extended the referee will immediately halt the match and award the submission victory. Matches that come close to the edge of the competition area will be stopped and restarted back in the center of the competition area. In the case of a scramble the match will be restarted in the standing position.
