    NAGA NO-GI POINT SCORING SYSTEM

    Throughout history the goal of wrestling in every form is control of the opponent. For thousands of years, this control has been understood in three distinct ways - Pinning, throwing, and Submission. The greatest exhibition of control of all sports is forcing your opponent to consciously submit. It is this standard by which NAGA contests are instantly won. In the event that no submission occurs, the match must be decided by “Advantage” which is defined below. The player in a Grappling contest should attempt to get the Takedown, secure Dominant Control, and take the Submission.



    -TAKEDOWN- Full Advantage (2 Points) is awarded for all Takedowns.

    In determining the Takedown, the referee will look to who initiated the takedown, and how it ended up. Thus if one player shoots, his opponent sprawls, and the sprawling opponent then pulls Guard, a Takedown is awarded, as the initial movement was a Takedown attempt. If however a player aggressively pulls Guard from standing, no Takedown is awarded.



    Note: The NAGA Scoring System is designed to award each player according to the standards defined above – Takedown, to Control, to Submission. Playing for points is not rewarded. Thus, if a player gets a Takedown, lets his opponent up, and then again goes for the Takedown, no consecutive points need be awarded.



    -DOMINANT CONTROL Full Advantage (2 Points) is awarded - Controlling your opponent is a crucial step to obtaining a Submission, thus Full Advantage (2 Points) is awarded for aggressively obtaining Dominant Control. Dominant Control is any secure form of control that lends itself to submission. The control has to be long enough to set up a submission attempt, which can be as short as a second or two. These forms of control include: -Back Mount*; -Cross Side; -Head and Arm; -Knee on Stomach; -Mount; -North/South; *Hooks are not required for Back Mount control.



    Among the most common ways to get Dominant Position are: -Ending a Takedown with a Dominant Position. In this situation, two points are awarded for a Takedown, and another two points are awarded for obtaining Dominant Position, for a total of Four Points.



    GUARD PASS or SWEEP- Full Advantage (2 Points) is awarded

    -Sweep From Guard to a Dominant Position. Further, if you take the Back from Guard, this is the functional equivalent to a Sweep. -Full Reverse, defined as going from the bottom of a Dominant Position to the top of a Dominant Position, leaving the situation totally reversed. For Example: You are bottom North-South, you roll the top player, and end up with top North-South.



    Note: The NAGA Scoring System is designed to award each player according to the standards defined above – Takedown, to Control, to Submission. Playing for points is not rewarded. Thus, if a player simply transitions between Dominant Positions, he does not achieve additional points. For example, if you have Side Control, and you go to Mount, and then Knee on Stomach, no additional points are awarded. Further, in The NAGA Scoring System no points are awarded for Escapes. This, if you are Bottom Mount, and you bridge to In Guard, no points are awarded as you went from a disadvantageous position to a neutral position.



    -SUBMISSION- Full Advantage (2 Points) is awarded for a Full and Strong Submission Attempt. A Submission is recognized as Full and Strong when is one or more of the following occurs:

    -The opponent takes time to escape; -Upon escaping, the opponent does not instantly move to an attack of his own, but instead assumes a defensive posture; -The defender is 'In Danger' - the finish has the potential for completion (if a kneebar, the hips have to be placed correctly, if a choke, the neck must have been reached, etc.);

    -The finish in question is not a low percentage submission (wrist lock, body scissor, etc).



    Minor Advantage (1 Point) is awarded for a Submission Attempt that is significant but does not meet the above criteria.


    -TIE- In the event that players are equal in terms of Advantage, judges will determine a tie by considering first, who skillfully controlled the Pace, Place, and Position on the mat, in order to ultimately set up an eventual submission. Pace is which Grappler determined the

    tempo of the match. Place is which Grappler dictated where on the mat the match took place. Position is which Grappler successfully initiated the tie ups and other action.



    If they are still equal, Judges will give the decision to the player with less warnings or cautions. Last, in the absence of any warnings or cautions, the edge shall be given to the fighter who better exemplifies the sport as an exciting, colorful, viable contest. If the players are still equal, then an overtime period can be called for.

    I'm thinking about competing in March at the NAGA in NJ. How late is too late to sign up, and are there any advantages to me signing up sooner rather then later?

    if you pre-register you save like 10-15 bucks, but other than that there is no benefit to pre-registering....if you dont pre-register you'll have to wait in a longer line at the tourney that morning but other than that you can sigh up at the day of the tournament if you want. Good luck bro!!

    Thanks man, might as well pre-register then. Hope everything runs semi-smoothly at least at this tournament.

    I was going to take my brother-in-law with me, but after hearing some of the horror stores of how long some people waited to compete, I’m not to sure about it. I don’t want him to have to sit there and wait all day, when he is really just coming to see me compete.

    I have only seen either one color or the other at these competitions, and the naga and GQ's that i have been to never check sleeve length, although anyone that i have grappled with the gi on has had legal sleeves so....if they weren't legal i'd bring it to the refs attention before the match

    I'm extremely dissapointed to see there are no slams from the guard that is just a stupid rule IMO.

    I got a feeling that this is only applicable in no gi if your butt or hips are on the ground.

    naga, as with most bjj tournaments, implements a sleeve length/width of ones 4 fingers stuck in the sleeve virtically. ive only seen them check if guys either complain to the judges, or if the guy wears famous gi's that dont meet sleeve requirements (most adidas gis).

    but if you can stick 4 fingers into your sleeve virtically, you have nothing to worry about.
