Here is a great tournament that will be happening in Bellingham, Washington (north of Seattle) this coming weekend. Check it out!
Lockflow.com is proud to announce it's 1st event: Submission Challenge 1. The Event will take place on April 29th in Bellingham, WA and is open to all levels and ages.
The concept of the tournament is unique, the competitors can compete with or without a gi. Competitors that wear a gi may use it in their submission attempts or have it used against them, while none gi user's clothing may not be grabbed.
The Lockflow submission tournament is not a Submission Wrestling tournament. It is a Submission only tournament. Only points scored are those gained by submission. No points for take downs no points for positioning, points are only awarded for making your opponent tap.
Each match will be 5 minutes in duration.
Points will be received for each submission finished.
Submission = 3 point
Draw = 1 point
Competitors will compete until there is either a 9 point lead or the time has elapsed. The winner of the division will be determined by most points scored.
The winner of each Expert Men's Adult Division will be invited to compete in the Absolute Division* at the "Bellingham Brawl" Event that same evening. (Free of charge). For the Lockflow Submission Challenge 1 Championship belt.
