Very Exciting and Important news
In an effort to stay true to our mission of offering the best possible tournament format, 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. Most “Dominate 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.
2. 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.
3. As Washington State’s longest running Submission Only Grappling Tournament, Proving Grounds will soon be stepping up it’s tournament presentation. Look for many cool new features over the coming events. Stay tuned here and on our Facebook page for more info.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A SUPER DEAL AND GET MORE MATCHES BY REGISTERING FOR BOTH GI AND NO-GI. (2 DIVISIONS FOR 60.00 DURING EARLY REGISTRATION)

NEW FOR 2017
In an effort to better accommodate our younger athletes as well as their supporting family and friends, we will be devoting the first portion of our tournament to children only. Our day will start with “ALL” of the mats running our kids, youth, and junior competitors. Our goal will be to finish the children (both gi and nogi) before the start of the adult divisions.

I hope you have all seen the post about Defense Soap coming on board as a Proving Grounds Submission Only Tournament sponsor. It would be very helpful if we could support those that support us. Please go thru the link on the KYS Promotions facebook page or the one below so they can see our support. Also, tell your friends. This is great for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu players, Wrestlers, Catch wrestlers, Judokas, and Boxers as well.
