                                                                                            Rules

1. NO SLAMMING ALLOWED. *NOTE Takedowns are not considered slamming, unless intent to injure is determined by the referee. This is to avoid slamming to escape the guard and various submissions from the guard and to prevent any major injury.

2. you must deliver your opponent safely to the mat, meaning, if you take your opponent down, you must come down with your opponent. This prevents "pro wrestling" type dangerous slams. Anyone violating this rule will be immediately disqualified.

Competitor is entitled to a total of 3 minutes to stop any bleeding. if the same competitors begins to bleed again, the match will be stopped immediately and their opponent will win by "injury Default". All other injuries, including cramps, muscle pulls, crying (in Kid’s Divisions), screaming or yelping will signify as a verbal submission and end the match.

8. NO DISRESPECTING REFEREES/TABLE WORKERS: We also will be enforcing fully, the zero tolerance rule of disrespecting, threatening with physical or verbally abusing staff. if any coach, parent, or competitor threatens or abuses the referee in any shape or form, their competitor will be disqualified and they will be escorted out of the building by security.

9. All Referee Decisions are 100% FINAL – all of the referees are professionals and have many hours of professional training in the arts of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Wrestling and Submission Grappling, amongst other ground fighting and stand-up arts.

13. Competition Area Boundaries: if the competitors near the edge, the referee will wait until a resting period and or until he/she feels the competitor might be in danger and re-start the competitors in the same position in the center. if a competitor scramble takes place near the edge, the referee will yell SToP and restart the competitors in the center of the ring in the standing position, unless the takedown is achieved in bounds to determine level of control for a 2 or 3 point takedown.

14. No points or advantages for takedowns will be scored out of bounds for safety of competitors and spectators alike.

15. POSITIONAL CHANGE FROM LEG LOCK SUBMISSION ATTEMPTS which result in positional change after a Advantage is earned for leg lock will NoT earn points (i.e. Fighter A drops back from Fighter B’s open Guard for a Leg Lock, he/she locks in for 3 count & earns advantage, then Fighter B escapes and comes up on top - No Points, only the ‘Fighter A’ advantage would be scored.

Supergrapplingmatch!

TTT - To The Tap

I knew it was only a matter of time before another tournament popped up.

First it was Auburn (Triad even competed there). Then it was ABJJF. Then SEJJA. Then the AGA. Now the HHC. I wonder why most businesses fail?

You should consider a name change. I know you're trying to get the name out there but it screams bias.

 ?????  ok....
I don't think the name has anything to do with the success or failure of the tournament, I am trying to make it really cheap so we get a lot of people in the tournament, which will lead to a lot of matches, plus it will be double elimination, we will have concessions (which I think a lot of tournaments go wrong in not having) I am very open to suggestion as to some things that other tournaments were missing that you guys think will make this run better or more smoothly. I already have a PA system, plenty of mat space, oh and it is only $30-$40 to enter.....I highly doubt I will go out of business, I mean I am getting the building and mats for free.

Is AIDS considered an infectious disease?

Chris do your thing bro... names shouldn't make a difference when people want to compete or not. I'm sure it will be successful.

Hopefully the members of Alabama's Garage Team BJJ Champions "Team Youtube' will be in full effect as well. I always love getting matched up with some dude in the first round who is wearing Tapout head to toe and as soon as you hit the mat you realize he has no idea what he is doing.

 Good luck with everything!  (first time back to this forum in a while, sorry no props earlier) 

And Mowa, nothing has failed on our end.  I am, however, way too busy to set another up at this time.  I'm sure this one will be a good one.
