In addition to our standard points tournaments US Grappling also runs a series of Submission Only Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and submission grappling tournaments. Matches in these tournaments have no points and no time limits. Despite fears to the contrary, the average match time for Submission Only events is under eight minutes. The fastest match recorded was over in 5 seconds, and was won with a flying armbar by Mike Galitello.
