Evolve Competition Team Selections Announcement

Over the weekend, Evolve MMA held the try-outs for the Evolve Competition Teams, the official amateur fight teams for Asia’s top martial arts organization.  As expected, the try-outs were very well attended and extremely competitive.  A very talented and promising field of Evolve students courageously put their skills on display for the many Evolve instructors in attendance.  All of the instructors left the try-outs inspired and proud of their students.  It was a true showing of the warrior spirit that the Evolve Family embodies.

After careful evaluation and consideration, a final list has been compiled of those who have been selected to join the respective competition teams.  This was not an easy process.  Every single student who showed up to the try-outs deserves the utmost respect and praise.  It takes great courage to put your skills to the test, and we were truly impressed by every one who showed up.

For those who made the team, we want to extend a big congratulations.  We are honored to have you on the team, and we look forward to guiding you on the next step of your martial arts journey.

As for those who did not make the team this time around, we are equally as proud of you.  Do not hang your head, but rather take pride in having showed up to test your skills.  Use this as motivation to work harder, train longer, and become better.  Don’t look at this as an end, but rather a beginning.  We fully expect to see every one of you at the next round of try-outs.  In the words of one of the world’s greatest athletes Michael Jordan, “If your trying to achieve there will be roadblocks.  I’ve had them; everybody has had them.  But obstacles don’t have to stop you.  If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up.  Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”
