Minot Jiu Jitsu Heads to Nationals

Posted: Updated:

It's a sport that's not talked about often in the Minot area -- but that may be about to change.

10 members of our local Jiu Jitsu team are heading to the national competition next month.

The group began in April of 2012, and has worked their way up in that short amount of time to qualify for nationals in Minnesota.

Competitive jiu jitsu takes 6 to 7 days a week of training, and founder Ryan Stiles says that working together and respecting each other are key factors that helped them get so far, so fast.

(Ryan Stiles, Founder of Minot Jiu Jitsu) "The team's phenomenal. They're really pushing me every day. They've come a long way since we started. So, they're making my game better, I'm making their game better, so we've come a long way since April of 2012. So we're getting ready to show that on a national level."

The national competition will be held on May 17th.
