What is Point Fighting BJJ?

Point fighting, also known as technical striking, is a scoring system used in MMA and other combat sports to determine the winner of a match. Unlike knockouts or submissions, which instantly end the fight, point fighting focuses on controlled strikes and effective takedowns that rack up points throughout the rounds.

How is BJJ Works?

Understanding the scoring criteria is paramount in point fighting. Judges evaluate each fighter based on the following:



Effective Striking: 

Clean, controlled strikes to legal targets muscles in the (head, body, legs) with proper technique and power earn points. Focus punches like boxing, kicks as in kickboxing, knees, and elbows that land flush are highly valued.




Taking your opponent down to the ground effectively scores points. The complexity of the takedown and the amount of control time on the ground also factor in similar to the world famous MMA.



Dominant Position: 

Maintaining control on the ground (mount, back mount, side control) earns more points than just getting the takedown. Ground and pound with minimal damage can also contribute to dominant position scoring.



Octagon Control: 

Judges favor fighters who dictate the pace of the fight, maintain center control in the octagon, and force their opponent to react defensively.




Moving forward, initiating attacks, and constantly putting pressure on your opponent demonstrates aggression and earns points.
