Proving Grounds Sets March 1st Date for Sub-Only Qualifier

Another competition has been added to the spring calendar for grapplers here in the Pacific Northwest (and, no, "Pacific Northwest" is not redundant. It's just bragging). Proving Grounds is back, returning submission-only grappling competition to the Evergreen State.

With Sub League limiting its events to the State of Oregon in recent years, opportunities for submission-only competition here in Washington have been virtually non-existent. Fortunately, Proving Grounds has stepped into the breach and is back for a second year of gi and no gi, submission-only grappling.

For 2014, the Proving Grounds event will be split into three competitions: spring and summer qualifiers with a championship final in the fall. If you are looking for opportunities to prepare for the Pan in the middle of March or the Revolution in the second half, the Proving Grounds may be an opportunity worth checking into.
