Lol I had actually forgotten about this thread... D:
Sorry I didn't post vids, we took one but the room where we spar is so freaking tiny that you can't really see **** on the vid (the person taking it had to guard dangerous corners as well as avoid getting mixed up into the fight, lol), that's why I didn't even bother posting it.
Atm I'm in China (having the time of my life!), I'll be back on the 29th of August and then I'll definitely meet up with you guys, would be awesome to kick each other around a bit and have a beer or two afterwards. :p
Oh, and by the way, my friend got KTFO'd by a Polish dude on the finals! LOL. The KO was quite funny, I'd gladly post a vid but I don't think he'd be very happy to see it floating around... I'll ask him. And yes, he does check bullshido from time to time. :p
Oh, and Lebell, when is it that you'll be around? I'm not entirely sure where Blabla Hampton is, but we're in Canning Town in London... Hermit road, to be precise, very close to the McDonald's.
I'll be checking bullshido from time to time even from here, but it's kinda hard to get time to cruise on the Internet. Got loads of stuff to do and I wouldn't miss it out by sitting in front of a screen.
Anyways, gotta go! <3
i checked with my friend and she'll be at hemel-hempstead (spelling?) which is 20 to 25 mins from downtown london by train.
When will you be in town?

i really cant pick a date yet.
the funny thing is, going to london would be cheaper then belgium or any other place thanks to a free place to crash and easy jet.
for example: going to Groningen takes me almost 2 times longer then london.
as from 2010 its way more realistic for me to start attending London TD's.
If I happen to be around London at the relevant time, then I'm always up for some grappling. So, I'll keep an eye on this thread (though looks like mostly strikers at the moment, unusually for UK throwdowns).
I'm back in town! Wow, that was some awesome trip... still looking through the 1000+ awesome pictures we took.
But yeah, going to go back to training when my Sifu comes back from China as well, which is in less than a week's time. Meanwhile I wouldn't mind meeting some of you guys and kick the crap out of each other for the sake of lulz.
Lebell, are you around London yet or still didn't come up with a date?
And cousto, PM me so we can get each others' numbers. I live very close to Newham, and I normally pass through East Ham every day, too, so it'll be pretty easy to find each other.
And last, but not least, I won a dancing contest in GuangZhou! :D
Which san shou did you guys do? BCCMA?
can't pm you iga
maybe you could pm me your email?
Those events were poorly organised the last time I went to one.. two guys from the same gym i know were the only ones in their weight class so they paid £15 and traveled for 2 hours to fight each other..

cousto, I've left you my email on your profile, go check it out. :)
Unfortunately, no. My Sifu has a somewhat bad relationship with them due to some drama that stirred up from the past, when he first came to England. I'm not too sure of the details, but I think they weren't too happy with a non-british competitor to win 2-3 times in a row and they somewhat "forced" him to retire. I think he also mentioned the endless amounts of membership fees that gave him no benefit whatsoever, which got him to leave the organization.
