The International Grappling Federation has a new concept for 2021: an online No Gi BJJ tournament focused on Grappling demonstrations!
Participants are required to perform three demonstrations of the grappling technique:
- Start from a standing posture, perform a throwing move and end with a painful action of the arm;
- Start from a standing posture, perform a throwing move and end with a painful leg action;
- Start from a standing posture, perform a throwing move and end with a choking action.
The technique must be demonstrated in a pair.
Each participant has to film how he/she performs the grappling technique. The video containing the filmed demonstration of the technique has to be uploaded on his/her Facebook account under the title “International Grappling Tournament”.
After publishing the link on Facebook, he/she must send it to e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Each participant can upload only one video and it must include all three demonstrations of the technique. When submitting his/her video by email, each participant must note his/her name, age and the club that he/she represents.
By participating in the International Grappling NOGI Technique Demonstration Tournament, the person agrees that his / her image will be shown, published, commented and presented to the general public. The participant confirms that he/she is healthy and takes responsibility for his own safety and health, and that he/she will not make any claims against the organizers.
Here is an example of the demonstration in Gi format:
