Onnit World Open 2017 Rules
The 2017 Onnit World Open is an International Submission Only Federation (ISOF) event. The ISOF utilizes a slightly modified EBI ruleset as its Standard ruleset for promoters and competitions to utilize for a uniformed rule structure.
Ways a Match can be Won:
Win via Submission victory within regulation time.
Win in Overtime: victory by submission, fastest submission time, or fastest escape time.
Win by opponent disqualification.
Win via opponent forfeiture.
Submission is based upon physical tapping, a verbal tap, or yelling during a submission attempt. If an opponent must have the match stopped for any injury related incident or any other reason beyond control that does not warrant any disqualifications, the opponent will have 5 mins to return to the match or they will have to forfeit the match.
*Match Time Limits *
Adult Regulation time: 8 Min Matches at all skill levels.
Teen Regulation time: 6 min matches at all skill levels
Youth regulation time: 5 min matches at all skill levels.
Finals matches: No time Limit
Overtime time limits: there is no time limit in overtime rounds. Time will run until an escape or submission is obtained. See Overtime rules below for more details.
OVERTIME RULES: The ISOF utilizes slightly modified Eddie Bravo Invitational overtime rules. Any match whose regulation match time ends without a draw immediately moves into Overtime with no break or time outs. There will be one overtime round. Any competitor who can not answer the call to immediately participate in the overtime round will be disqualified.
In Overtime competitors may choose between 2 dead zone positions described below.
Spiderweb or the Arm Bar position. Each position must have arms hooked, crook of elbow to crook of elbow. The opponent defending the position may have their arms in any defense configuration they desire.
Back Control with Seatbelt Grip Competitors will begin in a seated back control position upright with both hooks and a seat belt grip. The opponent may have their hands in place on the seat belt grip and chin tucked before ref begins the round. Once round begins the body triangle may be applied but not before.
Submission Shootout During the overtime rounds opponents are trying to submit or escape as fast as possible. Both opponents will have a chance to submit their opponent from a dead zone of their choosing or escape the deadzone their opponent chooses. The opponent who obtains a submission or the fastest submission in the Overtime round wins the match. Fighters will have 3 overtime rounds to achieve a submission in the event that escapes occur for both fighters. If after 3 overtime rounds no submission is obtained the fighter with the combined fastest escape time will be the victor.
In OT the Goal is Submit your Opponent as fast as possible or Escape the Dead zone position as fast as possible.
