I want to thank all of the competitors along with their coaches, families, and friends who attended Proving Grounds VI. It was very impressive and an honor to see all of those who chose to put it on the line. We had many seasoned as well as 1st time competitors. This event event set a new record for spectator attendance as well as competitor participation.

As usual, we had great attitudes, game competitors, and lots of smiles. (Maybe 1 or 2 tears) Academies from across the NW were in attendance. I would like to thank, 10th Planet Portland, Alliance L.A., Axtion Club, BJJ Olympia, Catalyst Fighthouse, Chimera Mma, Eatonville Mma, Elite BJJ, Foster BJJ/Lotus Club, RSU/Team Foaster, Gracie Academy, Gracie Barra NW, Ivan’s Salaverry Mma, Jiu-Jitsu Dynamics, Lion’s Way Martial Arts, LIVEWIRE Mma, Lotus club / Phantom BJJ, MABJJ, Mukilteo Jiu Jitsu, Narrows Fight Team, Praxis BJJ, Ring Demon, Sbgi Seattle, Sea-town Catch Wrestling, Steel Blanket BJJ, Stray Dogs, Summit Jiu Jitsu, Team Royce Gracie, Valko BJJ/ Summit BrJJ. We look forward to seeing you all at our next event.

I hope you have all seen the post about Defense Soap coming on board as a Proving Grounds Submission Only Tournament sponsor. It would be very helpful if we could support those that support us. Please go thru the link on the KYS Promotions facebook page or the one below so they can see our support. Also, tell your friends. This is great for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu players, Wrestlers, Catch wrestlers, Judokas, and Boxers as well.
