Summer Siege Grappling and Pankration Tournament Set for Kenosha on July 21
Grappling and Pankration are set to take center stage this summer in Kenosha. USA Pankration President Dave Sixel and Gracie Barra BJJ black belt Dave Rosenmarkle have announced details of an upcoming Pankration and Grappling tournament in Southeastern Wisconsin on July 21.
Labeled "Summer Siege" and scheduled to take place outdoors on Simmons Island Beach in Kenosha, the event will feature both Gi and No Gi Grappling and Pankration competition for all skill levels within the male, female, and youth divisions.
Additionally, both disciplines will also feature Absolute Divisions in which the winners will receive half of the entry fees. The event will also serve as a benefit tournament for U.S. Team Members in order to help them pay for the expenses accumulated by competing on the national levels.
Weigh-ins for the event will take place on Friday night at Gracie Barra Kenosha with the actual event beginning on Saturday morning. GI grappling will start off the day, No Gi will follow, and then the Absolute Grappling will come next. The Pankration portion of "Summer Siege" will conclude the festivities.
