Lay out proper grappling mats end to end so as to cover an 8 ft by 30 ft area. Two stools with a stick across at each end The contestants start 4 ft apart in the middle and the objective is to push/throw/drag your opponent back across thier ” home” line. No strikes , grappling/throws only. Once the two contestants end up down on the mat without moving either way for 30 seonds the ref drops a light hoop say 9 ft across over them. If neither fighter crosses the hoop in another 30 seconds time is called and the contestants start again standing four foot apart at the center of the stalemate spot An so on until one is driven back across thier home line So a cross between grappling and NFL . The advantage is that anybody can take part by adjusting the rules to what is mutually agreed. Also no offence to MMA but the fights either end very quickly or become stalemates in the guard so stop being a spectator attraction. Not to knock sports fans but they have 2 minute attention spans but want 30 – 60 minutes of action. This might do that Anyway any thoughts a part from I am stupid?
