About the tournament
The Military Combatives Grappling Championships (MCGC), held at Garrison Petawawa, is an annual tournament that brings together soldiers, sailors, aviators and special operations personnel from across the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), representing all trades and elements, to compete in a challenging and competitive combative arena. The aim of the tournament is to promote the cultivation of the Warrior Ethos through the practical application of the grappling techniques and tactics found in modern hand-to-hand combat.
The tournament is primarily a team event that focusses upon building unit esprit-de-corps while promoting the values of Warrior Culture. Combatives training and competition are the essence of this culture and skill development.
Warriors are forged in the fires of combat!
Tournament net proceeds go to the Soldier On fund to support our brothers and sisters-in-arms who have valiantly served their nation but now need our help in their time of greatest need. We are warriors helping our fellow warriors.
