    it is fun. the stick and knife fighting categories are fun to watch. i fought in both a couple years back. the sticks may be padded, usually they are. We might just use some thin rattan ones this time. the knives are wooden and chalked so you could see the "cuts".

    let me know if you are going to do any divisions or if you are interested i could get you or your class some flyers.

    Sport Jujitsu Free-Style Fighting Rules & Regulations

    Adult Black Belt Divisions
    Each match will consist of two 2-minute rounds with a 30-second break between rounds. There will be two time keepers, one to time the duration of each round and one will keep time for the 30 second ground fighting. Score will be kept with the use of tally counters by three corner judges. The center referee will be in charge of controlling the match.
    When the fighters are in a grappling position they have 20 seconds to execute a throw or takedown before they are separated by the center referee. Once a fighter has taken his/her opponent down they will be given an additional 30 seconds to execute a submission hold (choke, arm bar, etc.) before they are separated and returned to their feet to resume fighting. If it is obvious that the competitor is making progress, the 30 second time limit will be extended. This is up to the center referee's discretion.
    In case of a draw at the end of two rounds, an additional round will be fought. If it is still a draw, most accumulated points will determine the winner. Points will be awarded for crisp clean techniques to the body and controlled techniques to the head.
    Hand and foot protection must be worn. Grappling gloves that allow the competitor to grab their opponent are recommended. The top of the foot must be covered, either with dipped-foam foot protection, or cloth foot protection. Male competitors must wear a cup. A mouthpiece is recommended. In divisions under 13 years old, head protection must be worn.

    Scoring
    Judges award points as follows:
    1 point for a strike to the body… (hand or foot)
    2 points for a controlled kick to the head
    1 point for a takedown (less force than a 2 or 3 point throw)
    2 points for a half throw (one foot leaves the mat)
    3 points for a full throw (both feet leave the mat)
    1 points for maintaining a controlled pin for ten seconds
    2 points for maintaining a controlled pin for twenty seconds
    3 points for maintaining a controlled pin for thirty seconds
    4 points for a submission by referee intervention
    1 penalty point to opponent for non-combativeness (stalling)
    Submission by tapping out is an automatic win

    Illegal Techniques
    Fouls must be determined by a minimum of three judges.
    No striking to the face mask area (nose and eyes), groin, spine, nor against any joint. No finger locks, no wrist locks, no leg bars, no ankle locks, no biting, no gouging, no neck-cranks, no leg-kicks, no hair pulling, no knee strikes, no elbow strikes or head butts. No striking techniques are allowed when both competitors are on the ground grappling.
    Once either fighter is in a grappling situation with both hands on, there is no striking. If only one hand is on, then fighters are allowed to continue striking. A fighter may not, however, hold their opponent with one hand and continually deliver the same strike over and over. When a fighter is taken to the mat, his/her opponent has 3 seconds to score with one strike (the fighter taken down can also score from the mat with one strike). No stomping kicks allowed!
    Fighters will be warned only once for any infraction. On the second warning two points will be given to the opponent. Third warning is an automatic disqualification.
    If a fighter is running outside the ring simply to avoid engaging with the opponent, one warning will be given. The second warning, two points will be given to the opponent and fighters will be returned to the center of the ring by the referee to resume fighting from a standing-grappling position.
    Unsportsmanlike conduct by competitors, coaches, or sensei will result in immediate disqualification with absolutely no exceptions!

    Kyu Rank Divisions
    Each match will consist of two 1-minute rounds with a 30-second break between rounds. There will be two time keepers, one to time the duration of each round and one will keep time for the 10 second ground fighting. Score will be kept with the use of tally counters by three corner judges. The center referee will be in charge of controlling the match.
    When the fighters are in a grappling position they have 10 seconds to execute a throw or takedown before they are separated by the center referee. Once a fighter has taken his/her opponent down they will be given an additional 20 seconds to execute a submission hold (choke, arm bar, etc.) before they are separated and returned to their feet to resume fighting.

    Grappling Rules
    A complete judo or jujitsu gi must be worn. No short sleeve gi tops allowed. Pants must reach at least halfway down the calf. Females must wear a t-shirt under their gi top. Males may not wear a t-shirt under their gi top. Toenails and fingernails must be trimmed. Long hair must be tied back (no metal hair clips allowed). No jewelry of any kind is allowed to be worn. Contestants may not wear glasses. Contestants may not wear shoes. Contestants will begin standing. After bowing to one another, they will begin competition at the referee's command.
    All techniques must be applied within the designated contest area. The referee can at their discretion award a point to the opponent or disqualify a competitor for continued or flagrant infractions.
    Each match will have a time limit of four minutes for adult divisions (15 years and older). Youth divisions (12 to 14 years old) will have matches with a three-minute time limit. Childrens' divisions (under 12 years old) will have matches with a two-minute time limit.

    Scoring
    3 points for a full throw which causes both feet to leave the ground, makes the opponents fall mostly on their back, and has significant impetus, including speed and force.
    2 points for a half throw in which one foot leaves the ground and has lesser impetus
    1 point for knocking the opponent down
    No points awarded for wrapping your legs around the opponent and throwing yourself onto your back. If you throw yourself onto your own back, the referee has the discretion to award throwing points to the opponent.
    3 points for a 30-second pin in which the opponent is substantially controlled on their side or back. After judge awards points, contestants are returned to standing positions.
    2 points for a 20-second pin
    1 point for a 10-second pin
    1 penalty point to opponent for non-combativeness (stalling)
    If a competitor taps out, they immediately lose the match
    A contestant who taps out loses the match. A contestant must tap at least twice for the judges to recognize their intent. If the referee awards 3 points for a 30-second pin, the competitors will then be returned to standing positions facing one another, and competition will resume from standing upon the referee's command.
    Pins will be ended if both competitors leave the contest area. If only the person being pinned gets out of bounds, the pin is still valid, as long as any part of the person applying the pin is still in bounds. If the referee believes that a contestant is in danger from a choke or armbar, they can stop the action to protect the contestants, and will award 4 points to the contestant who had applied the armbar or choke.
    The referee may stop the action and return the competitors to standing if there is stalling on the ground. Chokes must be applied against blood flow only, never against the windpipe.
    No armbars allowed in divisions under 16 years old. No chokes allowed in divisions under 13 years old. For divisions 16 years old and above, chokes and armbars are allowed. No wristlocks, finger locks, leg bars or ankle hooks are allowed. (The one exception is the pain-only technique of grinding the back of the calf muscle in a lock.) No undue pressure may be applied to the neck or the spine.
    A competitor may not post on their head to avoid being thrown or to accomplish a throw. A competitor may grab the other competitor's entire hand, but not individual fingers. A competitor may not put their hands on the other competitor's face. Percussive moves (kicks and punches) are not allowed. A competitor many not lift an opponent who is lying on their back with the sole purpose of dropping them back onto the mat. If the referee believes that a competitor is stalling or is non-combative, they may award 1 point to the opponent.
    A competitor who goes out of bounds to avoid fighting will be given a warning the first time, and will have 1 point given to their opponent on the second violation. Continued infractions after the second violation will result in continued points being awarded to the opponent.
    If there is no score at the end of the match, the referee may call for a sudden death overtime of 30 seconds. If there is still no score, the referee will either award a decision win to one of the competitors or call the match a draw.
    A competitor will forfeit the match if they cannot continue a match or do not answer the judge's call for next competitors. If a competitor forfeits a match before it has begun, they may not re-enter the competition after that.
    A contestant who talks back to the referee or judges, disregards the officials' calls or conducts themselves in a rude or unsportsmanlike manner will automatically lose the match and may be disqualified from the tournament. Making unnecessary calls, comments or gestures derogatory to the opponent will be cause for disqualification.
    Each competitor may have one coach at the side of the mat. Friends, family, and fellow competitors must remain in the designated spectator area.
