Our local Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Team has been tearing up the local and regional tournament scene during the month of August.
Our first tournament, the "River City Submission Classic" took place in Post Falls, Idaho and includes team from Spokane, Coeur d' Alene, and Post Falls. In the youth division, Grapplers Guild standout student Dylan Bankson (aka Spiderman) won a stacked bracket that had over 8 competitors. Out of 5 adult divisions, Team Grapplers Guild took home the gold in 4. Here are the exact stats for the tournament:
Cord Rink, 1st novice under 150lbs.
Caleb Fleck, 1st intermediate under 150 lbs.
Dakota Blaese, 3rd intermediate under 150 lbs.
Grant Simmons, 2nd intermediate 150 - 170 lbs.
Mike McCray, 1st 170 - 190 lbs.
Danny Clark, 1st 200lbs. and above
Tanner Weisgram, 2nd 200lbs. and above
Our second tournament was the biggest one in the Northwest..."The Revolution" in Seattle. A smaller crew represented our team, but the results were equally impressive considering the size of the competition:
Tanner Weisgram, 2nd white belt division (202- 221 lbs.)
Danny Clark, 1st Advanced No-Gi (grappling) division (202 and above)
Congratulations to all of our competitors...we are proud of your accomplishments and representation of our gym!
