Submission Only Tournament pic and Vids

Here's a pic of three of the Capitol Combat Sports guys at the submission only tournament in Richmond last week. From left to right, Tom, Joaquin and Dave. This was a no-time limit tournament--all wins by submission. The shortest match was 14 seconds, the longest match was 34 minutes. Joaquin (in his first tournament) came close to being the longest match with a 31 minute bout. Jordan (not pictured) also made his first tournament appearance and won a bronze medal. Benny made his second tournament appearance and won a silver.

Tournament Results, US Grappling Submission Only iV

The results: 3 Gold Medals, 2 Silver, 3 Bronze. It was great seeing everybody out there competing at this well run tournament. Work schedules and injuries prevented some people from competing, but others were eager to try out this unique no-time limit tournament. Wins are by submission only, no matter how long they take.

UFC 100

It was great seeing everyone out at Public Bar for UFC 100. This was a new venue for everyone, but the consensus is that it's a great place for UFC fights. Plenty of TVs, booths and booze, and the location in Dupont Circle seemed convenient for everyone.

Just a reminder that if any of you are planning on going to the next couple of tournaments, (the Submission Only tournament this saturday/sunday or the Copa Nova tournament), either as a competitor, or just for moral support, let us know in class so that we can figure out the carpooling situation. Good luck!
