Shoreline MMA team with their winnings

Shoreline MMA, under the leadership of Aric Wiseman, sent a team to Bremerton Saturday to compete in the NAGA (North American Grappling Association) grappling tournament - their first time in the Seattle area.

Shoreline MMA has a children's Brazilian Ju Jitsu class taught by Aric and it is from this class that the competitors came.

Three of the four gold winners

Says Aric, "The team did very well! Most of the Shoreline MMA competitors competed in both Gi and No-Gi divisions. These divisions were broken up into ability, weight and age categories to ensure the most competitive matches for each grappler. Of the 10 competitors from Shoreline MMA seven fought in both Gi and No-Gi divisions and four of them went undefeated and scored double gold. The award for your first first place finish is a real, full size samurai sword. If you win gold in your second division then you receive a medal."

These same kids recently competed at the Arlington Submission Challenge, held on May 4th, Edmonds Submission Challenge and the large Revolution Tournament in Bonney Lake.
