TEN OR TAP
TEN OR TAP

We utilize a ruleset introduced to us from our first Super Champ, the badass Jeff Glover. He appropriately calls this ruleset ‘Ten or Tap’! You and your opponent will be strategically racing towards two possible outcomes, the collection of 10 points or a submission. Our point system and reffing are built in a way to prevent stalling and to keep matches action-filled!
