Disqualifications:
The fighters will be warned one time only; second time will be automatic DQ.
The ref will put his hands on both fighters, give verbal warning, and then the match will continue) .i.e. Pulling the head down with no arm in (neck crank). If a fighter taps from an illegal move/submission, his opponent will be automatically disqualified.

Kids/Teens

It is very important to understand that the safety of a child comes first. Meaning that the refs will stop a fight before tapping. If they feel it is the best interest of the child’s wellbeing. These kids have their whole life to train and compete. There is no reason to discourage them at such a young age. The refs will be a little more lenient with the more advance kids.
As parents and role models we ask that you remain calm and respectful around the mats. If you are to have any discrepancies please ask the ref to speak to a “Customer Service Representative” and they will do their best to take care of any of your needs.
Thank You in Advance…
