The “New Frontiers Cup” is an annual tournament held by Frontier Grappling Arts. The event, which is normally held later in the calender year, places eight grapplers in a one night, three round tournament to determine the winner. The rules are as follows:

– 8 grapplers qualify for the tournament.
– The tournament is held over the course of one night.
– The first or opening round has a 15 minute time limit.
– The semifinals has a 30 minute time limit.
