 The *Indonesian Grappling Federation* is extending a  cordial invitation to  all martial artists to the *4th Indonesian Submission  Championships* on  November 29, 2008 in Townsquare Cilandak, South Jakarta.

The Championships will be a great opportunity for all  students of the  grappling arts in South East Asia, including Jiu-Jitsu,  Wrestling, Sambo,  Judo and any other style of martial art to come together to  compete and  exchange techniques in a friendly and competitive  environment.  All styles  of martial art are welcome to join this competition.  The  competition rules  have been designed to encourage fast action and  submissions.  But also do  not favor one style over another as points are awarded for  positions and  techniques from all of the aforementioned martial arts.

Submission grappling is the fastest growing martial art in  the world and our  mission is to promote and socialize submission grappling in  Indonesia.  The  sport is highly competitive with the athlete demonstrating  his techniques,  abilities, and physical and psychological condition, with  the objective of  rendering his opponent into submission without the use of  punching, kicking  or any form of striking action.  Valid moves are those  which take an  opponent to the ground, and neutralize, immobilize, and  strangle him, or  apply pressure on the large twisting joints.

Competitions are the lifeline of the sport and are the most important aspect  for all those directly or indirectly involved.  However,  victory is not  granted at any cost; fair-play is always the main  guideline. Therefore,  there are certain moves ruled illegal namely, biting, hair  pulling, sticking  fingers in the opponent’s eyes, mouth or nose, striking  the opponents  genitalia, finger twisting, and any other move that gain an  unfair advantage  with the use of one’s fists, feet, elbows or head.

Ethical behavior is what gives this sport credibility and  security, which  are indispensable factors in any sport.  Through high  standards of behavior,  the sport has reached spectacular heights elsewhere in the  world.  Therefore, because submission grappling will one day soon  become part of the  greatest sporting show on earth, the Olympics, we need to  promote submission  grappling now as a sport in Indonesia.

With these thoughts in mind, we hope that you will come and  support the 4th  Indonesian Submission Championships on November 29, 2008 in  Townsquare  Cilandak, South Jakarta.
