Tournament Name: Don’t Tap Championship 5 or DTC5: Kumite.

Duration of Match: 6 minutes with sudden death overtime. Championship matches are 10 minutes.

There will be 2 tournaments, 170lbs and under and 170lbs and above.

DTC Kumite Overtime: If the match goes the full time limit, then we go into DTC Kumite overtime. The overtime starts in the standing collar tie position. This means each fighter grabs a neck with one hand and an elbow with the other hand putting the fighters into a double clinch position.

Sudden Death Overtime: Next point wins. A point is a takedown, sweep, guard pass, back take, mount or submission. As soon as the referee decides the point has been achieved he will call the match and award the winner.

Prize Money: The winner of the tournament will receive $500, plus $500 bonus for any submission victory. If the winner of the tournament submits everyone in regulation, they will receive a total of $2000.

Stalling: If a competitor stalls, the referee can award a yellow card to the staller, decreasing their pay by $100. If a competitor receives 5 yellow cards, they will be disqualified from the match/tournament.

The DTC Kumite tournament promises to be a thrilling and competitive event, featuring some of the best grapplers in the world. We look forward to seeing the top fighters in the league go head-to-head in this exclusive tournament and showcase their skills and determination.
