Fight to Win Pro 38: Preview

Black Belts, Brown Belts, Purple Belts—oh my! Though all the colors of the rainbow may be absent during Fight to Win 38 (F2W 38), the Jackson Sports Academy will act as the end of the colorful arching trail for many of Northern California’s decorated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners.

One-by-one, limbs will contort and airways will constrict under a submission-only ruleset when F2W 38 rolls into ‘The Capital City’ on June 30, 2017. Thirty pairs of opponents, some in the traditional BJJ Gi and others not, will find themselves draped in the applause of teammates, fans, and family while tied in knots on the mat, and the black belt competitors in the main event, Caio Terra and Kristian Woodmanse, and co-main event, Dustin Akbari and Gianni Grippo, plan to demonstrate their craft in its elite form.
