The Five Grappling Texas event this last weekend drew some serious grappling talent including Rafael Lovato Jr, Clark Gracie, and Justin Rader.
One of the quickest rising grappling competition promoters on the BJJ scene is FIVE Grappling, which is known for their free high quality streams of invite only black belt tournaments. FIVE hosts both gi and no gi competitions, and despite heel hooks being illegal, has much more liberal rule set that doesn't include advantages or knee reaping rules.
The Texas 1 event was one of nine qualifiers building towards the FIVE Grappling North American Championships in Miami this November.
