MB Open Rules Clinc #2

We will be hosting our second rules clinic Saturday Nov 4th at 230PM.

We invite all athletes, coaches, parents to come by for brief seminar of our Manitoba Open Rulebook.

– Rulebook Overview
– Outline minor revisions
– Point System Used
– Submissions and Illegal moves
– Examples of various scenarios.
– Q & A

Facebook event:

Note: For all kids divisions 12 and under our referees will stop the match when -any- submission is locked in place.

This is not a new rule, but we are re-enforcing it.  We understand the desire to win at all costs, however we believe in the safety of the competitors always comes first. There is no exception to this rule.

Note:  New rule: Any athlete who happens to go unconscious (due to choke, etc.)  will no longer be able to compete for the remainder of the event.   Again, athlete safety is our number one priority.

Referees Wanted

We are always looking to expand our referee pool.

If you are a purple belt and up and would like to referee, email us to join our mentor-ship program.  We will teach you the rules and how to referee.  During the tournament you’ll be partnered with an experienced ref who will be at your mat with you during your matches.  We will help with any issues and provide feedback after.

Being a referee is a hard job, but without them we wouldn’t have a tournament.

We pay all of our referees for their work!

Feedback welcomed!

As we continue to grow and improve, we are always looking for more feedback.
