Empire Grappling are bringing back their Empire Grappling Invitational but this time as a team series tournament.
The first team series event will take place on Saturday, 25th May 2019 in Manchester.
This is something the North of England's grappling scene has definitely been missing. This event is not about the glitz and the glamour but is about team grappling at its finest!
Teams will be invited. but if you would like to put forward your team with reasons why they should be considered, please e-mail [email protected]
With this type of event, we are looking for singular teams and not affiliation teams combining together. For example, we would prefer if a Combat Base or a Gracie Barra team is invited for that team to be from one location only that train together very often.
