SBG Repeats As NWSC Champions



Last month, at the 2016 Northwest Submission Challenge at Capital High School in Boise, ID, Straight Blast Gym International continued its dominance by again sweeping the adult gi and nogi team championships. This year, however, the youth team championship was also added to the mantle, making it a clean sweep across the board!!!

Led by strong contingents from the SBG academies in Kalispell and Whitefish (Montana), Elko (Nevada), and Boise (Idaho), we more than doubled the team scores of the second place team! Tournament organizer, Tren Long, called it “the most dominant performance ever at the Northwest Submission Challenge”. The tournament field was more competitive than ever this year, with over 500 athletes coming from, Idaho, Utah, Montana, Nevada, and Oregon.

The number of medalists this year was far too many to count, but we will post full results when they become available at

Once again, congratulations to all SBG athletes that stepped on the mat to help us prove once again who the top martial arts program in the northwest is! We look forward to a 3-peat next year!!!
