More than just an event

Submission Series, is an event that was created to highlight skilled competitors in a new style of production. We are bringing new light to the sport of Jiu Jitsu. Our founders Cal “Pacino” Ellenor & Anth Hopper are two BJJ purists who both share a joint passion for Jiu Jitsu. The North East of England is a hot bed of talent, most of whom are generally unknown and yet to break through. Our aim initially was to highlight this fact and create stars and opportunities for people that might not regularly get their recognition. After our first event being a huge success, we now take this same approach, to competitors from all over the globe. Submission Series is more than just a Jiu Jitsu Show, our production value is second to none, we expand with every single event. Our future plan is to create Jiu Jitsu stars, signed to our events and represent our brand as we elevate the game. Our scoring criteria is simple. Black Belt rules, all submissions legal, no slams & fights are scored on legitimate submission attempts, followed by positional dominance, over a 10 minute super fight.
