We are excited to be offering 5 events for your Martial Arts pleasure.
Combat Sports Jujitsu
This rule set allows for any martial arts style to compete fairly against other styles and show their martial arts skills in a healthy and fair competition.
Participation classes are divided by age, weight, rank, and time in training; this is done to provide the fairest possible format for juniors and cadet participants.
Contests consist of 2 rounds of continuous action fighting, with a break between rounds.
Points are scored with strikes and kicks, as well as legally authorized throwing techniques; throwing technique reversals, and control holding techniques.
Submissions are LEGAL for groups ages 12 years and older.
Forms / Kata
This is a Traditional Forms Division. No music, acrobatics, or gymnastics are allowed.

Duo / Team Self-Defense
Self-Defense/Duo is a competition division in which a pair of Martial Arts athletes from the same team, show possible self-defense techniques against a series of attacks, to cover the following typologies:
**NOTE: Either member of the team may attack or defend at any given time
- Grips – grip attacks (grips with the hand to defender’s body or uniform)
- Restraints – embrace attacks (or strangulations)
- Strikes – striking attacks of any kind (punch or kick)
- Weapons – armed attacks using traditional, modern, or improvised weapons (stick, knife, sword, staff etc…)
This is a traditional Point Sparring division
Light contact to the headgear is acceptable in all rank and age divisions. Face shields are part of headgear.
Students from the same school will be separated in the first round if possible.
All techniques are one point.
Under belt matches are 3 points
Black Belt matches are 5 points.
Grappling / BJJ
Ages 11 and under. Submissions are not permitted in these age groups. These divisions will follow the same protocol and scoring as the Combat Sport Jujitsu divisions with the exception of no strikes.
This is a “Submission Only BJJ” format for all divisions ages 12 and above. Points are NOT awarded for the specific control positions and the competitors theoretically only win if they get a submission. This format places less emphasis on maintaining position, and more emphasis on attacking submissions.
The competitor wins via tap-out, verbal tap-out, or referee stoppage due to imminent danger. Athletes can attempt throws, takedowns, and both standing and ground submissions until one gives up or the time limit is reached.
