I know this is gonna be a little early, but there will be news soon about a No-Gi grappling tournament that is going to be held in Des Moines, IA on 7/14/07. I believe more information should be available soon on the website www.515built.com As news gets closer to official, I will make sure to post as many details as I can for you. You can get in touch with me directly at my e-mail address of sirquack@netzero.com. I am not associated with the tournament although I will likely be volunteering. I do however work out with the organizer and will get any questions asked answered by those in the know. Ron

Sorry for the long delay. I have finally gotten the site updated with the information about the No-Gi grappling tournament to be held in Des Moines on July 14th, 2007. Please visit the site at: www.515built.com This will be a Nationally Ranked grappling event so if you are a competitive grappler, you can earn points by competing in this event. I hope to have more details about known names that will be competing in this event soon. Please keep an eye back here and at the sponsor site for more details as they become available.

Also worth noting, the Iowa Summer Games are that weekend as well. I can't imagine it'll have too much of an effect on attendance but it is something to keep in mind.

Make sure you tell your training partners about the tourney since you can't be there. I know there are a few guys up your way besides Greg's group that would love to be able to travel just a few hours to get to a tournament instead of having to drive all the way to Chicago or Milwaukee to get some grappling in.

Again this is a RANKED event so points you score will go to determine true national rankings. Just like if you scored points at NAGA. I really hope to see everyone there!

I just got official word that this tournament has been cancelled. It bothers me because I was really looking forward to this happening. I will be talking with some other guys here in town and see if we can put a tournament together here in the near future. I will try to get details out as soon as they are available and if we do this, we will do it for sure. Sorry guys, I wish this had come through. Ron
