Armored combat on martial arts fight card?
I am working on ways to help promote TeamUSA for the Battle of the Nations (which is gathering steam quite nicely, BTW. We will have over 30 fighters signed up, our first national practice is Feb 16-19 in Springfield, Il, and the event is scheduled for April 29-May 3 near Warsaw, Poland). A local fight promoter has invited me to compete in a grappling match in their next event, and I thought that it might help to promote the team if we had an armored combat match on the fight card and an exhibitor's booth to sell t-shirts etc http://www.usaknights.org .
The question is this: how many more people do you think would buy tickets to a boxing/kickboxing/grappling/sport jiu jitsu "fight night" in Long Island or Fishkill, NY if it also included a full-contact match between two armored knights with swords who will be representing the US at the Battle of the Nations this spring?
