On August 12, over 100 martial artists of all ages will hit the mats for up to 70 consecutive rounds of sparring to raise money for local mentoring organization Friends of the Children. A grapple-a-thon is a Brazilian jiu jitsu fundraiser, where participants spar while raising money for a cause. At least one pair of grapplers must be on the mat at all times for the entirety of the event. All skill-levels are welcome to participate. There will be a youth session from 8 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. (ages 4-15). Adults will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Attendees may also come to cheer on the athletes and see who has the fortitude to go all 70 rounds. 

During the event, Five Rings will also be accepting donations for KATU's Family Matters school supply drive. Learn more about our drive here.

Five Rings' mission is to inspire health, wellness, and growth in our members and our community through grappling, fitness, and service.
