Small Rules Modification


Rule #2 under “Submission Grappling Rules” has been changed from:

2) The only leglocks legal for novice, beginner, intermediate, and 30+ divisions are straight ankle locks (AKA straight footlock) and kneebars.

to:

2) The only submissions below the waist legal for novice, beginner, intermediate, and 30+ divisions are straight ankle locks (AKA straight footlock) and kneebars.

We hope this small clarification makes our popular and easy to understand rules for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Submission Grappling even better. We are constantly seeking feedback from competitors and coaches on ways to improve our rules. If you have questions about our rules use our Feedback form or email questions@usgrappling.us.
