East Coast Submission Shoot-Out: No-Gi Tournament
As part of the PACS Grappling Series, the East Coast No-Gi Submission Shoot-Out will be held May 21st, 2011 in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. January’s event was a huge success, bringing in some serious talent for the mens and womens divisions… We are expecting to see some more of the true “Gunslingers” at the EC Submission Shoot-Out!
The concept is simple, you only can win by SUBMISSION…and the more submissions the better your odds. All the traditional points awarded for positional changes and takedowns are thrown out the window. This is truly the best blend of Submission Only and Time Limit match competition…This format has been made popular in other countries because of the fast paced, submission only nature…and now were bringing it to the East Coast!
Points are given to a competitor for each submission during a match. After a submission the competitors are reset on the feet and resume til the match time limit expires. Multiple submissions may occur during any match, resulting in points awarded to the competitor. Each division will be done in a “ROUND ROBIN” format, with all competitors grappling each person in their division. The competitor with the highest total number of submissions, in each divison, will be declared the TOP GUN and awarded 1st Place! The second and third place finishers will be determined in the same way.
