Rules

Single-Elimination : 
A single-elimination is a type of elimination tournament where the loser of each match-up is immediately eliminated from the tournament. Each winner will play another in the next round, until the final match-up, whose winner becomes the tournament champion.

Double-Elimination :
A double-elimination tournament is a type of elimination tournament competition in which a participant ceases to be eligible to win the tournament’s championship upon having lost two games or matches. It stands in contrast to a single-elimination tournament, in which only one defeat results in elimination.

Tournament structure :

From now on, ALL adult divisions will be single-elimination and ALL Kids divisions will be double-elimination.

Submission Arts United competitors can compete in Gi or Nogi (or both for adult female competitors). Both formats operate in different rulesets.

 

Youth Gi divisions follow our SAU Allowable Techniques Chart :

Adult Gi divisions follow the rulesets and guidelines of the JJIF (similar to IBJJF) :
