RISE Sambo Championships - March 2015- Philadelphia
The Rise Sambo tournament was organized and run by Erik Purcell, who is also the owner of MPR MMA in pennsylvania. The tournament was incredibly well run and the competition was top notch with world class competitors flying in from several countries. Erik is a seasoned Sambo competitor and I think this showed in how the tournament was run in a very "athlete first" manner, as it should always be.
We had 4 teenage members of Team Renegade enter the competition, and after a full day of fighting we came away with 2 Gold medals, 1 Silver, and 1 Bronze!
