500+ competitors come out to compete in F2W/WGC’s first foray into San Antonio

 

SAN ANTONIO, TX – It was a hot and muggy day this past Saturday at San Antonio’s Aztec Indoor Soccer Center. The venue played host to Fight to Win / World Grappling Circuit (F2W/WGC) and their first tournament in San Antonio, 2015 Alamo Classic. Now promoter Seth Daniels would be the first to tell you the day didn’t go quite as planned – not with the post office losing 200 medals and with the venue breaking their A/C the morning of the tournament along with a few other issues but despite all that, the tournament ran well and both Daniels and partner Brett Boyce are already fully intent in delivering for competitors the next time they come back around to the Alamo City.

As for the 2015 Alamo Classic, the competition on the mats was just as hot as the temperature in the air. Over 500 competitors came out to compete in this one and it was competitive in every divisions from the kids and teens all the way up the masters divisions. Especially competitive were the adult female divisions with top competitors from Austin (Julia Ottolino, Laura Heiman, Ketra Bartek), Houston (Kayla De Leon, etc.), and South Texas (a few from Presa, Cinco MMA, Harlingen BJJ, etc.) all coming out to battle all afternoon.

Complete results coming soon via tournament organizers but check out 70+ match videos from the tournament along with some photo highlights below
