The Indonesian Grappling Federation is extending a cordial invitation to all martial artists to DJARUM SUPER'S INDONESIAN SUBMISSION CHAMPIONSHIP on November 24 & 25, 2007 in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The Championship will be a great opportunity for all students of the
grappling arts in South-East Asia, including Judo, Wrestling, Jiu-Jitsu,
Sambo, Aikido, Hapkido, Jeet Kun Do, Tai-Chi, Karate, Penjak Silat, Kung
Fu and any other grappling art to come together to compete and exchange
techniques in a friendly and competitive environment. All styles of
martial art are welcome to join this competition. The competition rules
have been designed to encourage fast action and submissions. But also do
not favor one style over another as points are awarded for positions and
techniques from all of the aforementioned martial arts.

Submission grappling is the fastest growing martial art in the world and
our mission is to promote and socialize submission grappling in
Indonesia. The sport is highly competitive with the athlete
demonstrating his techniques, abilities, and physical and psychological
condition, with the objective of rendering his opponent into submission
without the use of punching, kicking or any form of striking action.
Valid moves are those which take an opponent to the ground, and
neutralize, immobilize, and strangle him, or apply pressure on the large
twisting joints.

Competitions are the lifeline of the sport and are the most important
aspect for all those directly or indirectly involved. However, victory is
not granted at any cost; fair-play is always the main guideline.
Therefore, there are certain moves ruled illegal namely, biting, hair
pulling, sticking fingers in the opponent's eyes, mouth or nose, striking
the opponents genitalia, finger twisting, and any other move that gain an
unfair advantage with the use of one's fists, feet, elbows or head.

Ethical behavior is what gives this sport credibility and security, which
are indispensable factors in any sport. Through high standards of
behavior, the sport has reached spectacular heights elsewhere in the
world. Therefore, because submission grappling will one day soon become
part of the greatest sporting show on earth, the Olympics, we need to
promote submission grappling now as a sport in Indonesia.

With these thoughts in mind, we hope that you will come and support DJARUM
Jakarta, Indonesia. The fee is Rp.100,000 per competitor and free of
charge for spectators.
