SBG’s Pacific Northwest contingent ran roughshod over the competition this past weekend at the 2017 Northwest Submission Challenge! Comprised of competitors from Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Montana, and Idaho, they took home medals, belts, money, and most importantly Adult Team Gi, Adult Team No-Gi, and Adult Team Overall banners for the third year in a row! SBG’s Growing Gorillas also had an outstanding showing taking the Kids Team Runner Up banner, missing out on a complete sweep by only a small margin! Men’s Absolute Divisions in Purple Belt, Brown Belt, Black Belt and Advanced No-Gi were swept by SBG competitors, Chris Meyers (Elko), Eddie Zeigler (Portland), Gus Nolte (Montana), and Scott Thometz (Idaho), respectively. SBG’s training methods are producing predictable, repeatable results, regardless of where in the world you train!
We are incredibly proud of all of our competitors for this year’s tournament. Each and every one put themselves in a position, win or lose, to challenge themselves and ensure that they were better than they were before they stepped on the mats. SBG has taken the overall team title three years in a row at the NWSC and we can’t wait to defend again next year!!!
