Informed Performance Submission Tournament- Results

Please use the comments link for any errors or ommissions.

Before any result I’d like to thank everyone for showing up to Ireland’s largest ever submission wrestling tournament. I hope you all enjoyed the day and hope to see you soon at the next one later this year. As people may have noticed, we have a large gym but not a lot of spectating room, so I’d also like to thank everyone for the respect they showed the facility and the competitors by not overly crowding the rings and also for keeping the place clean. It took us literally 10 minutes to totally clean the gym and pick up water bottles (very few) which is a testament to the character of all of those who attended. I’ve been at tournaments where the room looked like a dump afterwards so thank you all. We intend to do it again quite soon so keep your eye on the Fight Tournaments page on http://www.informedperformance.com

Below are the results of the tournament. We are currently in the process of writing some software to do a lot of the organisation of tournaments automatically and as a part of that, we are going to try to implement a seeding process to reward those who compete and win regularly. Please help us in this by pointing out any innaccuracies in the comments for this post.

  2. I commented on the main page, but allow me to repeat myself as I am wont to do:
    BJJ rules are great for BJJ, but suck for sub wrestling. Good day all round though.

  3. I think it’s more a question of what is the best ruleset for sub wrestling in Ireland than the best overall.

    I would like to see a ruleset which:

    1) Penalises(teehee) guard pulling and rewards takedowns.
    2) Rewards sweeps more highly than guard passing. Anyone can mong past a guard eventually, but sweeping takes some skill. I can remember maybe two or three sweeps in the divisions I reffed. Most people won’t risk losing 3 points if they’re passed just to gain a measly two for a sweep.
    3) Allows no celebrations on the mat, as in judo.
    4) Eliminates advantages – as the Master said “Do, or do not. There is no ‘try’.”

    Maybe I should just sit down and write some rules, then get Jim to run a competition based on them.

    Suggestions for ipSTD (Informed Performance Submission Tournament Deux)

    2. ABSOLUTO

  4. 1) Penalises(teehee) guard pulling and rewards takedowns.
    Yes I think this would be good. Not for me obviously.

    2) Rewards sweeps more highly than guard passing. Anyone can mong past a guard eventually, but sweeping takes some skill. I can remember maybe two or three sweeps in the divisions I reffed. Most people won’t risk losing 3 points if they’re passed just to gain a measly two for a sweep.
    I think that’s an excellent idea.

    3) Allows no celebrations on the mat, as in judo.
    Oh yes indeedy, I actually think if you celebrate on the mat you should have the decision reversed. Also next time I will impose a -1 point penalty for more than one coach in a corner or encroaching on the mat from a corner.

    4) Eliminates advantages – as the Master said “Do, or do not. There is no ‘try’.”
    I was not convinced of the advantages before but now I am. For me they are a good way of deciding tight matches as they usually reward the more agggressive guy.

  5. Forgot th answer the second part.

    Maybe I should just sit down and write some rules, then get Jim to run a competition based on them.

    Yes do, and better yet, I’ll run the next tournament based on them… or at least after some consultation 🙂

    Suggestions for ipSTD (Informed Performance Submission Tournament Deux)
    1. SUPERFIGHTS
    Suggestions as to who should be involved?
    2. ABSOLUTO
    Absolutely. In fact I will make that a pre-registered event too. My mistake was leaving it until the day to see.
    3. CHOCOLATE FOR REFEREES
    No way. you have gone too far now.

    I believe I actually owe you some beer.
