The rules- very simple 95% of all submissions are allowed. All throws allowed as long as you don't land them on their head.
Round 1 3 minutes- no points (promotes actual submission attempts)
Round 2 2 minutes- points given
a. 1 point for a throw
b. 1 point for bettering a position (really easy to understand)
1. Position hierarchy: Non Dominant, Neutral, Dominant.
2. You get a point for going from Non Dominant to Neutral or Neutral to Dominant
Round 3 Sudden death (now this was weird) First person to hit the ground loses.
Everybody at this tournament was great (except apparently me as a ref yelled at me for not understanding the "First person to hit the ground loses" rule.).
Met up with Shinbushi from bullshido and even got take a picture with Gene Lebell.
If you get a chance to do this tournament I highly recommend it.
