BOISE, ID, April 25, 2015 – Straight Blast Gym of Montana demonstrated excellent grappling technique at the Northwest Submission Challenge in Boise, Idaho.  The event featured men’s, women’s, and kids’ divisions in both Gi and No Gi.  The Montana competitors were proud to have earned 21 medals, including 10 gold, 5 silver, and 6 bronze.  The collective SBG, including teams from SBG locations in Seattle, Boise, Portland, and Elko, Nevada won the overall team trophy for both the Gi and No Gi Division.  SBG also took 2nd Place in the Kids Budo Cup.

“The Budo Kids Cup and Northwest Submission Challenge was another ideal opportunity for our youth and adult competitors to test their skills, training, and competition strategy. Everyone on the team performed exactly how they trained. With wins under our belt and more medals to hang in the gym, we also now know what we need to work on next, said Travis Davison, head coach and owner of Straight Blast Gym in Kalispell, Montana.  

“That’s the beauty of competition. It will always be the best and most authentic litmus test for the quality of our training. I look forward to leading this team on a continued upward trajectory,” Davison added.
