BJJ Fanatics Builds On Previous Grappling Events
BJJ Fanatics made waves on the competitive grappling scene with their Brown Belt Invitational Tournament, their Sub Only Grand Prix and their sponsorship of the Gordon Ryan-led Quintet team that dominated the competition back in October of 2018.
We checked in with Kyle Boehm who's busy training for the upcoming ADCC Trials to ask his thoughts on the new competition sponsorship and he had this to say:
"Sounds awesome! Always good to see those guys putting on tournaments. This will be a great opportunity for up and comers. Fantastic to see BJJ Fanatics putting together events again!"--Kyle Boehm
Tom DeBlass, who's no stranger to the competition mats as a competitor or as a Coach of the likes of Garry Tonon, Gordon Ryan and his other up and coming competitors coming out of Ocean County BJJ, his home academy had this to say about the partnership.
"BJJ Fanatics has changed how the average student learns BJJ. They've given students around the world access to world-class instruction at their fingertips. It only makes sense that they help to provide a great experience for competitors of all levels on the competition mats. I'm looking forward to watch the impact unfold."--Tom DeBlass
So get your team together or get registered for the individual events today! BJJ Fanatics has joined forces with Nuway Combat and they're looking to revolutionize the grappling competition experience.
