Enjoy this FREE Video:
When I first watched UFC I didn’t know where to train.
There were no blogs giving away 7 FREE MMA Videos ^^^^ (hint hint)
But one day my friend came up to me with his buddy and told me that his buddy trained Mixed Martial Arts.. You know that UFC stuff.
They said they we’re doing a tournament called GrapplersQuest that took place at a local high school and you could do submissions on your opponent.
I had never trained before but decided to sign up because my friend Ryan’s friend Hosea had bleached tips in his hair and I figured if THIS GUY can fight I certainly can!! (Hosea and I are now great friends by the way)
I didn’t have the money for classes but I would watch my friends train then go practice the moves I in the park at night after class.
My friend Ryan and I would wrestle in the grass. Sometimes Hosea would come too.
I ended up entering GrapplersQuest and competing in the Novice Division where I made it all the way to the finals.
I had never been that tired in my entire life and ended up losing in the finals due to exhaustion.
That set a FIRE off in me. I knew two things. 1. I had potential. and 2. I HATED losing.
Well several years later they’re out of the high schools and have moved into Mandalay Bay and hotels and casinos all across the country.
Even though I fight MMA on TV and have been around the world doing Mixed Martial Arts. I still compete in GrapplersQuest to this day I’ve become dear friends with the owner Brian Cimins and GQ even sponsors me because I got my start there.
It’s one of the most fun things I’ve ever done in my life and probably the best run tournament I have ever entered!
I’m not the only one either SO MANY UFC Fighters still compete in GrapplersQuest to this day. I can’t even name them all but you’ll see some of them in this video.
It’s real proof of what a great tournament GQ is!
Anyway enjoy the video and if you want to test your skill and see what it’s like to compete against someone of your own skill level or even step up and challenge the best GrapplersQuest is the place to do it!
They have divisions for every skill level and weight Mens,Womens,Kids,Masters ..everything. I can’t recommend GQ more highly. It’s where I got my start and my home to this day!
