The Team Challenge
The Team Challenge Tournament is an exciting new addition to the Submission Challenge Tournament Series.
In addition to our World Class Sub Only Open Invite format tournament we will be now offering an Exciting new Open Team Format for Sub Only Competitions.
THE TEAM CHALLENGE IS so much fun. Its a NEW TEAM GRAPPLING TOURNAMENT FORMAT ADOPTED FROM SAKURABA’S QUINTET FORMAT. THE TEAM WINS A TEAM MATCH, NOT THE INDIVIDUAL. THIS FORMAT MAKES THE TEAMS THE WINNER AND NOT THE SINGLE INDIVIDUAL ATHLETE.
Matches consist of two teams of five facing each other in a “winner stays on” elimination format.
Matches begin with one fighter from each team competing. This is called a “round”. When a submission is scored, the round is over and the defeated fighter is out of the match. The winning fighter, though, immediately faces the next member of the opposing team in a new round.
The match continues, round by round, fighter by fighter until one team is completely eliminated.
The two most successful team from the opening bouts will meet in the Championship Finale.
