Tri State Children’s Jiu Jitsu takes on Grappling Tournament

Children’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Grappling Tournament

Tri State Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts recently had nine students compete in the North American Grappling Association (NAGA) Tournament on January 25, 2020 in Broomall, Pennsylvania at the Marple Sports Arena .

This event is annually Pennsylvania’s largest children’s grappling tournament state wide.

Our partcipating Tri State students, in addition to their regular Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes, attend a children’s competition class on Saturday mornings. For many, it was their first time competing in a grappling tournament. Our competitors earned seven first place wins in addition to multiple second places standings.

Participants include: Ryan Stadler, Kristian Warywoda, Isabella Rapciewicz, Collin Cianci, Takeo Dawson, Aidan Goodman, Elliot Fields, Ethan Ayala, and Alex Fields.

We are so proud of all our students who competed.

Both our children’s and adult’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes are affiliated with the world re-owned G-13 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program, founded by Master Roberto Godoi.

The courage and confidence in our students is astonishing. We look forward to more competitions and watching our students grow in both our Mixed Martial Arts programs as well as our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program.

A Black Belt is a White Belt that never quits!
