Grapplers Guild Student Competes in Boise / Mike McCray Earns Blue Belt

Grant Simmons traveled down to Boise this past weekend to compete in the Northwest Submission Challenge, a submission only tournament. After finishing off 2 opponents, Grant claimed 2nd place after a tough loss in the finals of the Blue Belt Gi division. Congratulations to Grant...his hard work and constant improvement is an inspiration to the team!

Speaking of constant improvement...Congratulations to Mike McCray for earning his blue belt after over a years worth of hard work and dedication to the sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. His belt was hard earned on the mat, with consistent sparring ability with his teammates, as well as proven victories at several tournaments. The whole team is very proud of him.
