The Spokane Submission Challenge

Thank you for your interest in the Spokane Submission Challenge! We are currently the only local tournament in Spokane and we have three tournaments a year. We believe that in order to contribute to the growth of Jiu Jitsu, we must facilitate the challenging of the students. It is only by testing the abilities in a “real-life” situation that we can begin to see growth in the sport. This is the fundamental idea behind The Spokane Submission Challenge.

Spokane Submission Series next Tournament is January 4th, 2020! 

We are expecting our biggest turnout and are excited to have the event at the Spokane Health and Fitness expo. More info to come! Link to rules posted below and registration will take place on smooth comp (link to come).

Submission only Jiu Jitsu tournament! Mark your calendar, we look forward to a great event with many NW schools! $55 registration for 1 division or 2. This year we are excited to watch some of the best competition in the state happen as we offer $1,000 Black Belt Grand prizes for Lightweight (under 170lbs) and Heavyweight (170lbs-265lbs)

Submission Only:
Kids 3 min with 1 min overtime
Adults 5 min with 1 min overtime
Overtime: First to score a point (i.e. sweep, take down, mount, back grab, etc.)
Any matches that last past 1 minute overtime will be decided by the referee, Absolutely no interference with referee decision will be allowed.

As we grow as a tournament, we aim to facilitate positive relationships within  Jiu Jitsu practitioner’s as well as to promote healthy competition. If you, or anybody else you know, are interested in sponsoring this tournament, you can reach us at

In order to achieve growth, we must first be challenged.
