Submission Grappling is a new sport with a long history. The object is to submit your opponent using a variety of joint locks and chokes, or to win the match on points. Competitions in this sport resemble Brazilian Jiu-jitsu competitions, although competitors do not usually wear gis. This lack of gi increases the amount of speed and athleticism required, and it also limits the sweeping and submission options of the competitors.   Submission Grappling is mainly based on Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.The influence of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu can be seen in the types of positions and submissions most commonly used in the sport.
