How do you score in positional grappling?

This is the second post in a series in which we are going over rules for the upcoming kid’s tournament. In the first video, we talked about how students might be either grappling for position or submission. If the students are both orange/purple or below, they get to choose if they are going to grapple for position or submission. If they are both purple or above, they must grapple for submission. If one student is orange/purple or lower, and the other is purple or higher, the lower ranking student gets to choose. If one student chooses position and the other chooses submission, the match will be for position. In this video, we will talk about some of the positions students can score with if they are grappling for position. In the video, we show mount, crossbody, rear mount, and kesa getami as scoring positions. Note that if the match is to submission, there are no points (but we will go over that in a later entry). To score, one student must hold a dominant position while the judge ¬†counts to three. Please excuse the shaky camera work, I like having the kids help me with these videos so they feel like they are part of the process.
