El Dorado Hills Jiu Jitsu had 3 competitors compete in the Submission Pro Tour at Foothills High School in Sacramento, CA. The tournament was a Submission only tournament with EBI overtime rules. For the kids divisions, instead of the EBI overtime rules, the competitor the scored first (takedown, sweep, pass) was declared the winner.
- Kids Division: Slater (Yellow belt) – Gold
- Adult + Aaron (Blue belt) – Silver
- Josh (White belt) – Silver
All competitors had some great matches! It was a great experience to compete under the submission only rules and train for the EBI format overtime rule as well.
The EBI overtime format is where both competitors have an offensive round and a defensive round. Each get to choose how they want to attack. Either from a defended armbar in the mount position or with the back take and seatbelt grip. If time is kept to see how fast the defender escapes if there is no submission. If there are no submission at the end of 3 rounds the person with the quickest total escape time is declared the winner.
Unfortunately, EDH had more competitors signed up, but their matches were cancelled due to the lack of registered competitors.
