Congratulations to all of the competitors who competed in Proving Grounds VII. This weekend was incredible. Individual results can be viewed here.

This fall/winter has been a very busy time for NW grapplers. Even with the pressure of so many other tournaments, Proving Grounds VII was a great success. Once again, the sportsmanship was incredible, and the skill level was extremely  high. Seeing game competitors coming together from all across the PNW is what Proving Grounds is all about.

Stalling? Nope! – Points? Not here! – Excuses? Never!

If you like to compete, get multiple matches, have your submission game tested, and have a great time, Proving Grounds is the tournament for you.
We would also like to highlight the following competitors for their outstanding performances that consisted of submitting everyone in their bracket of four or more competitors.

Gordon Gibson
Adam Abdelhamed
Jireh Carcellar

Important update: After consulting with several coaches and our referees, we have decided to move all of the children’s divisions to the submission only format. Between the high level of instruction on your part and our referees attention to details and regards for safety, I believe the children will be safe with the submission only format. I look forward to seeing you at the next Proving Grounds.
