The Ringside World Championships was held last week in Kansas City from Aug 2-6. This championship is deemed to be one of the largest world tournaments. This year alone, 15 different countries were represented over the 4 days.

Senior Mens Open
Andre Gorges (Border City) def Enver Halili ( Weatherford, TX)
48kg Senior Womens Open
