Five Grappling Comes to Oregon: Great Performance’s By All



On Saturday, May10th,2014,  the Performance Grappling Team hit the mats at the Five Grappling Oregon 1 Tournament.  Results were impressive, both individually and as a team. Professor Ben Baxter battled World Champion Jackson Souza in two super tough and technical matches, and later dominated his way to a gold medal in the No-Gi division. Purple belt, John Butler, had the most impressive performance of the day, bringing home 4 medals in as many divisions. At the end of the day, team Ribeiro Lovato NW ended up on the podium for all 3 categories: Youth, Adult, and Overall. It was a great tournament; we can’t wait to have Five Grappling come back to Oregon!
