Submission-only Winter Classic 2014
Submission is the name of the game!
Welcome to the NESC, New England’s premier submission-only grappling organization.
We believe strongly that jiu jitsu is an art of submission. That’s why we work tirelessly to take jiu jitsu back to its roots and inspire competitors not stall or hold back for fear of losing a match by points or advantages.
While points may win a match, it is submission that’s the real end game—proving definitively who the better opponent is on that particular day. So we invite you to get on the mat, challenge yourself and to come compete in a format that stays true to art we all love so much.
Our next event, The Winter Classic is going off December 6th 20014!
