    Hi
    id like to get some feedback on if tag fights are popular any-where else but NZ.
    We have about a 30/70 ratio of tags at each event,but dont see them mentioned here.

    They do them sometimes in Japan but I’ve never seen any from other places.

    Thanks for that.
    Are they not popular in the States,we have a DVD proposal on the table and in it they have asked for several tags, how do you think the public will react.

    If I am not mistaken we had one here at HOOKnSHOOT it was a tag team submission. I thought that it went over very well. You just have to watch it closely and make sure that it doesn’t turn into a WWE thing. I really liked it though. You might want to check into it a little further.

    Yeah a tag fight is when you have a team mate you can tag in and out of the ring, we do them all the time here and they are really popular with our crowds.
    But i wanted feedback to see if they were popular elsewhere.
    They tend to be faster paced as the fighters get a breather when their mate is fighting, and the team member who is waiting is usually desperate to get in there and yelling pointers or instructions.
    I find it is a good way for new fighters to ease into things as if they are nervous they arnt out there alone.
    Also if fitness level isnt as goo as it should be (e.g after injury) then it also helps restore confidence.
    Thanks for your feedback,it all helps get a better picture of things.

    Someone apparently had created a poll about bindy’s question, but it disappeared right after it was posted here:

    Thanks for the poll,im still learning to use this site,but will be really interested in the outcome to this question as it is a big part of what we do here downunder.
    We had a tag on the week-end at a kickboxing comp and the crowd went mentle,it was a great fight though with a surprising outcome.

    The two younger lighter fighters beat the club champs,i was their corner gaurd and we had a great plan…….i think the girls are still on cloud nine, and i havent got my voice back.

    Thanks again Bindy

    i just did a tag team submission match for exhibition at some show because not that many people showed up and they wanted to keep the crowd entertained. my boyfriend and i were a team versus two other guys from our team, one from the columbus school and one from the west virginia school. everyone kept yelling “let the girl fight!!!!” so josh tagged me in and i lasted about a minute, i had jamie tapping on a guillotine choke but he tagged sal in and they sat on me long enough to arm triangle me. youre allowed 5 seconds of both team members in the ring so if youre close to the other teams corner things can get ugly. it was fun though, and josh avenged me.

    I think it funny to watch!
    What rules did you have Bindy?
    Groundstriking on head allowed or 30 seconds count standing up again?

    Thanks for your experiences.
    I think it must have been hard if the tag was both male and female,i can get points on joe average male but guys that know what they are doing have strength and skill………good on you for trying.
    Some of my team have fought media people (males) just to prove they could beat them and that fighting this way can be a form of selfdefence.
    Also to show women can defend themselves against men.
    But never has it been guys who were fighters it was more a smart arse reporter getting what was comin to him.

    Rules in usuall tag fights are 4 or more fighters…..some-times six.
    Same rules apply as in normal fights……e.g no eye gouging,no pressure points above the neck,all chokes accepted,any form of takedown.
    If you are under the ropes restart (stand restart imedietly) only hold each position 20 seconds if you cant get the tap then must change.

    Tags are a big pert of what we have done and seem to be really popular, it is just interesting to know how people outside of NZ see it.

    Thanks guys

    I’ve never heard of tag team MMA in North America, but I have heard of tag team women’s toughwoman contest in North America. It was up in British Columbia, if I remember right, possibly at Nanaimo. There used to be two sisters in Canada who fought as a tag team in toughwoman contests.
