BONNERS FERRY — On Oct 6, members of Bonners Ferry Jiu-Jitsu attended the first Spokane Submission challenge. This tournament was hosted by Adam Smith at Corefit Inc. Adam Smith is the co-owner and operator of Spokane Valley Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The tournament included both male and female competitors starting as young as four years old.

Coach Sam Brown of Bonners Ferry Jiu-Jitsu stated, “It’s really great to have another local tournament pop up. Last year we traveled to the Seattle area four times, California, Las Vegas, Denver, Missoula, Mont., etc. Having a chance to compete so close to home is great and we’re super thankful that Adam put the competition together.

“The whole thing was really well run and every single competitor we took, made the podium and brought home some medals,” Brown added. “There were a lot of smiles that day!”

The following is a medal count for our competitors from Bonners Ferry and Sandpoint.

Solomon Brown (age 4) two bronzes, Cheyenne Barras (age 5) one gold, Samuel Brown Jr (age 6) one bronze, Colt Barras (age 7) one gold, Benjamin Hollabaugh (age 8) one silver, William Hollabaugh (age 12) one gold and one silver, Max Baroudi (age 15) one silver, Riley one silver, Brad Anderson one bronze, Tony Gallette one gold, Marrisa Rink one bronze, Matt Palmer two silvers, David Combs two silver, and Chelsea Cummings one bronze.
