Proving Grounds VI: Submission Only Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Tournament
Saturday • May 30, 2015 • Interlake High School
16245 Northeast 24th St. • Bellevue, WA • KYPromotions.com
This a great opportunity for both kids (age 5-17) and adults to further challenge themselves. Rather than the more typical point system, this tournament is submission only, eliminating some aspects of sport Jiu-Jitsu that focus on winning by points. We encourage members of our CageworX family to enter the competition which offers both gi and no gi divisions. Keep in mind that most of the CageworX coaching staff will NOT be available on this date due to a scheduling conflict (see below). Instead, we will be cheering on the Joshes at their Muay Thai kickboxing matches!
