    Most gyms rent out handwraps, and shinpads and things. You might want to check that out prior to attendance. You can bring your own, if you have them, but most gyms, from my experience will at least let you borrow or rent shinguards.

    Everyone is friendly or at least cordial in person, without exception (it's a prerequisite for attendance here). That doesn't mean people don't spar hard, it just means no **** talking/threats etc beyond jokes between friends.

    Anyone grappling/sparring agrees with the other person on contact/pressure levels, and as it's filmed, there's a good incentive to not go beyond/outside those agreed-upon levels. I've organized quite a few here, and we've never had a problem. Nor have I seen one on the videos from Throwdowns around the world.

    As long as you pay the mat fee, to my knowledge there's no participation minimum. If you want to come, sign the waiver, and just watch, or ask fellow attendees for advice/tips on sparring/grappling that's fine.

    The idea is for us to safely pressure test ourselves against resisting opponents, and gauge our skillset against people we're not familiar with. I suppose actually you could just push hands or hit the bag/pads if you wanted. Ego free is just that. I've made some very good friends at these things, and grabbing some food or a beer afterward is a great experience.

    I know Bullshido posters are called Bullies, and the events Throwdowns, but it's more like "you-pick-the-contact-level" sparring/grappling followed by an evening out with fellow posters, now friends. Good stuff man. I wouldn't waste my time/money with it if it wasn't. I generally don't go out, if I'm not in the show.
    Cheers Ninja, Thanks for the heads up, all that sound decent and good fun.

    I actually visit your neck of the woods once in a while, my girlfriends aunt & uncle live there.

    what nice part of the world you live.

    For the record i dont think anyone is a bully on this forum at all, i think this place has great banter.

    I like the underdog rep im getting around here aswell :)

    Don't need to go far. Just look at the major causes of death worldwide published by the World Health Organization. HIV/AIDS is #1 or 2. MRSA doesn't even make the list. There is more MRSA in the community, but that's among all comers, not just grapplers. The 'Sifu' is just spouting about stuff he doesn't know anything about, much like he is when talking about BJJ

    At least this sifu was humble. What makes me sick are these outlandish claims instructors make (I could defeat 10 of these styles).

    You have a weird definition of humble. Oh wait is that your diatribe?

    Dick Knubbler? Which one is that lol? There's Nathan Explosion, Skwissgar Swigelf, Toki Wartooth, Murderface, Pickles, the nameless manager, those twins but I have no idea who you're talking about.
