Five students of Intrepid MMA are returning home from internationally renowned North American Grappling Association tournament in Portland, Oregon with medals in tow.

Led by three-time world champion in no gi Ju-jitsu, coach Rick Dubois took five of his students to this year’s NAGA tournament that attracted over 400 participants from around the globe.

At the age of seven, the hard work and dedication of Intrepid’s youngest member, Conner Priebe, paid off.

Conner won a silver medal in his division, while his older brother Brayden Priebe, 10, won his division and brought home the gold.

Isaac Byron, 11, who commutes faithfully from Chase to train at the club on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, won gold in three different weight classes.

Shaun Steiner, 18, who, in just over a year has already earned his blue-belt, continued his undefeated streak, and won a gold medal in his division.

Intrepid MMA’s Jordon Roy, 22, also competed, and took home a hard-fought silver medal.
