    Last weekend no-gi competitors once again showed the true nature of jiu-jitsu, a hunt for the submission, the most decisive way to win a match against another grappler. The women in the arena were no exception. Out of 66 brown and black belt matches, there were 42 submissions, an almost two-thirds submission rate. Almost no division was spared at least one win by submission, and many were overpowered by champions who submitted their way through their entire brackets.
