On August 11, 2018, Submission Pro Tour’s upcoming show, Sacramento Elite Series 3, will turn a collection of Northern California’s Jiu-Jitsu specialists loose on their mats to tie one another in knots tighter than the colorful belts wrapped around their waist.
Whether draped in a Gi or not, fourteen human chess matches, ranging from yellow to black belt, will eject everyone inside “The Capital City”’s Benvenuti Performance Arts Center from their seats once the action hits the canvas. Submission Pro Tour embodies the EBI ruleset, which means: If ligaments and airways are still intact at the end of regulation, participants then enter overtime, battling the clock to escape an awarded position—either placed on the back or in what’s known as spiderweb.
