Dream Jiu Jitsu follows the standards of bigger organizations with a few exceptions and changes of our own. While we want our competitors to play by the same rules as everyone else, ultimately competition should be designed for you to become a better grappler. We believe our rules and format reflect that idea. All questions should be sent by email.

 

All Dream Jiu Jitsu adult nogi tournaments are submission only, 10 minute time limit, and modified EBI rules.

DREAM FORMAT: ADULT NOGI TOURNAMENTS

To view the Gi Tournament Rules, please visit this page.

Submission Only

Dream adult nogi tournaments are submission only and will not have points or advantages.

10 Minute Time Limit

All matches, all belts, will have a 10 minute time limit.

Overtime

If a submission is not achieved during the time limit, competitors will enter overtime.

  1. Overtime rounds will begin in the armbar position.

  2. A coin will be flipped to decide which competitor chooses to be in the offensive or defensive position.

  3. Competitors will have a chance to either attack or escape.

  4. Each competitor will have a chance at both offense and defense, meaning there are 2 overtime rounds total.

Win criteria for overtime rounds:

  1. If one competitor submits his/her opponent and the other does not, the competitor who earned the submission is declared the winner.

  2. If both submit their opponents, the competitor who earned the fastest submission is declared the winner.

  3. If both escape, the competitor with the fastest escape time is declared the winner.
