Penalties, Will it Happen?

As we have been growing every year, we are following the IBJJF rule format more and more.  One of those areas is Penalties.  Now, as a nice guy I don’t like to dish out penalties, but it is now something we have to do.  Most of them are pretty obvious, some are more subtle like grabbing shorts for no gi, and some are for your own safety but they will be something the refs will be looking for at the MBS.

This video is a little longer at 6 minutes but also covers what the refs are looking for disqualifications such as slamming and reaping the leg, so place close attention.


Enjoy the long weekend and try to get some extra time on the mats getting some good prep time in for the MBS.


Still haven’t registered?  The list is starting to build and with over 400 possible divisions we WILL have a division for you.  43 year old purple belts thats 167lbs… you got it.

Check out the list of divisions HERE!  We are trying to build MBS as a fun,competitive and FAIR tournament.  Come on out.
