Sounds awesome- I was pumped up when I heard Eddie talk about it in his last podcast.

(http://www.10thplanetjj.com/podcasts/)

For all his critics, is there any doubt that Eddie loves BJJ and wants to promote it?

So gi is optional?

Don't you think it would be better to do one or the other or both separate? Phone Post

you gotta give some points eddie or you will have a guy doing nothing,you seen it all ready i dont have to tell u


thats what the yellow cards are for.

read it,that could be like an advantage point .up to the ref.getting mounted then getting out in a second is ok,but if somebody holds mount for 3 or 4 seconds,that should be worth something.

Wish there was more tournaments like this format, would be fun to compete in and to watch. Keep them coming Eddie I'll be tuning in for sure and thanks again, I popped in the gym months ago when I was in town when you were in Burbank. You have an awesome group of people and a great atmosphere, couple techs I learned while I was there went instantly into my game and you really helped me find the holes in the one position I've been playing that's stemed off London/williams guard, that no one around my area could give me insight on. . TTT for good instruction, good people, and an awesome tournament.

I think the final should have no time limit at all, that way we there are no double DQ's in the final.

If you are going to place a time limit on the final add a caveat, like have a sliding scale on your tournament prize purse (i.e. for every 5 mintues of overtime, you lose a $1,000.00 from the purse up to $10,000.00)

Just a thought though.

The finals will be 20 minutes. If time expires. We go into a soccer type "free kick" overtime situation. Each competitor gets to chose back control with both legs hooks or spider web aka arm bar position. The combatant with the quickest sub wins. If no subs, the combatant with the quickest escape wins. This will ensure that when a grappler is defending he doesn't just sit there t-rexxed. It's in his best interest to escape as fast as possible. Remember, fastest escape wins if no subs Phone Post

the soccer type free kick overtime is interesting, but im not sure back control with hooks is equivalent to spiderweb. back control with hooks is a position, spiderweb is a submission being defended. i think the choice between overtime position should be more comparable (mount,back,side control,north south, etc)

SeanRoberts - This tournament is going to be CRAZY!!!

I am trying to make this the most exciting tournament on the planet so naturally I am going after the best grapplers I can find, the elite. Most of the elite are black belts. There are only a few rising stars that are brown belts, famous brown belts, brown belts that are wreckin shop and blowin up, like Sean Roberts. He just let me know that he wants in so he's in :)
