This past weekend saw Sleeve and Collar flow grappler Dakota Wader take on the IBJJF Charlotte Open and we also sponsored professional MMA fighter Elijah Gbollie for an MMA event in Baltimore, MD named Shogun Fights.
Charlotte also saw friend and team mate Argelio "Chapp" Chappotin compete in an Onyx gi reppin hard with some sweet vinyl patching as well.
Dakota Wader was able to defeat his first round opponent but was unable to secure victory in the 2nd round of his Adult Purple belt division. With a first round "bye" this saw him on the 3rd place position of the podium. Not where he trained to finish but we think he will get that top view soon enough with the amount of work and effort he has been putting in. Soon enough that spot will be earned.
We will periodically post pics from the events throughout the year on our social media. So please like or follow us to keep up to date.
