On Oct. 18 & 19, the leader of GMA Seamless Progression Academy entered a competition and came out on top.

Professor Benjamin Salas competed in the FIVE Grappling 40+ age absolute division in Illinois. He faced Nick Pollaro and won in a “slow but decisive final match,” he says.

Benjamin avenged his loss when he won the absolute as Nick had outscored him int he middleweight division final when he capitalized on Benjamin’s failed takedown attempt. The final in the absolute was a cautious bout with neither of the black belts wanting to allow the other to take advantage by purchasing a solid grip – “classic ‘dinosaur Jiu-Jitsu'”.
