So, starting a thread about a possible 2014 European Mega.

I would love to welcome fellows Bullshido members to Bratislava, Slovak republic.

I can provide mat space and a couple of (non-Bullshido) guys who like to roll, punch and kick.

A seminar with a BJJ brown and/or black belt is possible.

There are public shooting ranges with moderate fees and a chance to shoot different weapons (this is a shameless attempt to lure in UK residents).

I am listening to your preferred dates.

Props for this!

The Euro Mega Throwdown, traditionally, used to be held in October. So I'll shamelessly suggest Oct 11.

I guess, though, that a lot of us have their schedules pretty open half a year in advance, so maybe you should just check with the gym if there is a week-end that works better or worse for them and go from there.

Sounds great..and the guns lure has worked!
After summer is easiest for me so the Oct date is cool, but whenever works for most I shall be up for in principle.

Nice one Tonuzaba.

I'm in, finances permitting.
(I'm still a South African citizen so I have Visa gymnastics to contend with).

Fuzzy & I should be able to make it on/after October, depending on how much travel & accommodation costs. Doubt I'll be able to train up to much but keen to meet Euro Bullies and shake up what few skills I have.

It would be great to see Fuzzy again and meet Katje, finally. :)

This is all up to enough interested people.

I hope we will make it happen.

Katje - I see you list "Escrima" as your style. Any chance of getting beat by sticks?

I do mostly grappling these days (I lost my eyesight some time ago and am now blind), but I have my background in FMA and Indonesian MA and would love to test to spar with seing weapon-people...

Hey - I'd spar with anyone, weapons or not! There's plenty of ass to kick, for anyone.

With pleasure. Fuzzy will be your man if you want anyone with actual skill, but I'm more than happy to bring our sticks along and flail at you for the lulz.

Will be awesome if Ignorami can make it too. It'll be interesting to see how his tall, swan-like grace compares to my Juggernaut style approach.

It would be awesome to meet some people from this place, so if my schedule is at all free and the trip there isn't super-expensive, sign me up. At a cursory glance, plane rides from Stockholm to Bratislava seem pretty convoluted, but I'll see if any good options present themselves.

You're Swedish, don't you people flat pack?

Pff. It's longboat or nothing, sister, and my Karve is in the shop.

By the way, I second Mackan's interest in getting hit with sticks.

"Oh this is a weapon now? We call this 'Sauna' in Swedish... Or 'Foreplay'"

For real though - it does not have to be all Dog Brothers for me, but it IS cool to fool around with sticks and what not. (I think that rubber knives have been mentioned...) If nothing else, it is a change to the combat cuddling.

Oh, most def. I saw a video of my uncle doing Kali a while back, and it looked pretty awesome; I haven't gotten to hit anyone with a stick since second grade!

So... Oct 11 is the only suggestion I have read, so far. A cool date? I wanna book this early / cheap.

Yes, so far you're the only one who suggested a specific date... :)

I have no problem with it. It might pretty well be the finest Euro Mega TD date for this year.

The only thing I can't tell for sure right now is whether something won't come into it. By "something" I mean a BJJ Slovakia grappling tournament or a Nick Brooks seminar. Or life. :)

So far, October 11.

Now, for that thing needed to have a TD, what's it called... ...ah, people!

So who besides Mackan, Resonance10, Fuzzy and Katje, Hadzu and myself? :)

Around that period I should be in TjechiŽ, so I can throw my gi, boxing gloves and my canne in the car and drive a little bit further ;-)
