perspective

 

In the art of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, submission is the primary objective.  Although the approach may differ between academies and rulesets, the goal is ultimately the same. 

As we enter a new phase in the evolution of grappling, we feel it is imperative that the art continues to evolve as both a sport for practitioners and as a spectacle for audiences — which is why our team firmly supports the submission-only movement.

We aim to produce quality tournaments for the sub-only grapplers who are looking to test themselves in a format — we believe —
to be the purest form of the gentle art.

Values

We believe the sub-only format not only respects the purest origins of the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but also provides the ideal format needed to attract, captivate and engage audiences.

We believe this format provides the best manner in which athletes can monitor their progress and test their abilities.

We believe the athletes who dedicate their lives to this sport deserve a competitive atmosphere that compliments the commitment they make inside their gyms every day.

Finally, we don't just want to be a part of the sub-only movement, we want to help push the sport forward, captivating practitioners and audiences alike with matches that place a premium on the finish. 

As such, we hope you'll compete with us.
