On Sunday November 17th Grappling-X hosted its final Championship series of the year. If you missed it, you missed one of the best grappling tournaments in the nation in all of 2013! With 650+ competitors on the mats and hundreds of supporters in the stands, it was a great day for SoCal Jiu-jitsu!
The team Grand Prize goes to Paul Silva Jiu-jitsu who also took home the first place kids team award. Alliance MMA is quickly becoming a force in the kids divisions taking second place with Stronghold and Ramona BJJ both representing hard in a tie for third!
In the adult divisions, Paul Silva Jiu-jitsu pulls a shocker and ties with Atos for first place team! Paul Silva’s school, always known for their kids, is now stepping up with an adult team that rivals the best. Gracie Humaita San Diego took second place with Ramona BJJ picking up third.
Yes this was one of the best events of the year, but just wait until you see what we have in store for 2014! Everyone at Grappling-X would like to thank all of you who have supported us in what began as a very rough year and we want you to know that the best is yet to come! So keep training!!!
On October 27th Grappling-X made its way to the American home of Jiu-jitsu, Torrance California. The skill displayed represented the legacy of the city well.

In the adult divisions, Cobrinha BJJ won first place with Carlson Gracie Murrieta taking second and GFT/M3 Fight Fitness taking third. A great day for grappling in the Golden State!
You want the largest piece of metal in GX history, then you need to register for the San Diego Event on November 17th to get a shot at one of these beauties. Five, yes five inch medals will be awarded at this event. Roll hard and you will barely have the strength to carry one home! As it should be!
