IMPACT Tribe “Rolls” Deep at US Grappling VA. Beach.

10013960 10203644858188889 1501599904 n

Saturday, March 15th at Virginia Beach Field House, the IMPACT tribe filled the stands and the mat. With over 15 competitors and an even larger crowd of supporting classmates and family, we were easily the most heavily represented school at the competition. The incredible turnout of teammates that arrived for the sake of cheering on their brothers and sisters in battle is the perfect example what makes the IMPACT bond so tight. Fights were taking place well into the evening and the tribe remained to see their members compete down to the last event. Well fought, IMPACT competitors, and congratulations on the matches that were won and the knowledge that was gained!
