  1. Submission

    A submission is a combat sports term for yielding to the opponent, and hence resulting in an immediate defeat. The submission is commonly performed by clearly tapping the floor or the opponent with the hand or sometimes with the foot, to signal the opponent and possibly the referee of the submission. The submission can also be verbal, during which the fighter verbally informs that he is giving up. In some combative sports where the fighter has cornermen, the corner can also stop the fight by "throwing in the towel", which may count as a submission.

The sand aesthetics of our mind The wind of inevitability draws memories in the sand and falls asleep with new waves of stories.

The asylum is the abode of society's broken toys. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
