Coach Sonia Sillan from Straight Blast Gym of Seattle (WSB sponsor) in North Delridge shares the news of a big achievement in recent competition:

Straight Blast Gym of Seattle took 24 competitors to the Revolution, a Brazilian Jiujitsu tournament in Tacoma; we competed alongside teammates from SBG Montana and Portland. There were over 660 individual competitors, with 250 competing in two divisions (gi and no gi). SBG Seattle, Montana, and Portland had a combined 67 athletes and came out top as a team – We ended up winning several categories (out of six) for overall champions.

– Youth/Junior Gi – 2nd place
– Youth/Junior No Gi – 1st place
– Youth/Junior Overall – 1st/Champions
– Adult Gi – 4th place
– Adult No Gi – 1st place
– Adult Overall – 3rd place

Out of our 24 competitors, I had 15 kids, six of whom were competing for their first time. Everyone had a blast and showed fantastic sportsmanship.

“Gi” or “no gi” refers to what is worn (or not). Congratulations to the SBG competitors!
