 Proving Grounds is Washington State's longest running Submission Only BJJ/Nogi Grappling Tournament. We run all brackets in a round robin format to give every competitor the most possible matches (More matches/more learning). Great for Adults and children. High level competition and a guaranteed good time.

In an effort to stay true to our mission of offering the best possible tournament, we will be making a few significant changes for future events. The following changes should make for a more exciting, competitive, and inclusive event.

1. As of October of 2019, we will only be allowing competitors and coaches on the main gym floor. All others will be asked to remain in the bleachers. This will make for a much smoother and safer run event. 

2. Most "Dominant Academy" award - This title will be given to the academy (defined by a single address/location. Not to be mistaken with affiliation/multi locations) with the greatest number of submission finishes.

3. Due to many requests, we are now adding a "Master 4" division for competitors 50+ years of age. It is our hopes that this will bring many more of our "not as young as we used to be" competitors out for a day of fun on the mats.


EARLY REGISTRATION END AT 11:59 PM ON December 27, 2019

FINAL REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 11:59 PM ON January 24, 2019


Take advantage of a super deal and get more matches BY REGISTERING FOR BOTH GI AND NO-GI. (2 DIVISIONS FOR 65.00 DURING EARLY REGISTRATION or 75.00 for children or 85.00 for Adults during Late registration). Price discounted at checkout.


Important message about the academies: the academies of the registrants must be EXACTLY the same to add the academy points and to avoid a match between team mates in the 1st round of a bracket. For example: 'RSU' and 'Ring Sports United' will NOT be considered as the same academy. You can change your academy by logging into your account. IMPORTANT: ONLY the 'Academy' field in the registration form will be taken into account for the prize for 'Most Dominant Academy'.
