"The Bladed Hand" in Minnesota
My fma instructor just told me that he's worked out a deal to have The Bladed Hand shown in Minnesota around early November. If anyone here is in the area and is interested, let me know. The more people we can get interested the more likely it'll be deadnuts that the director will come.
I'll add you to the facebook group on request. Just message me your name.
I'm looking forward to the showing in San Diego. Looks like a lot of people put a lot of effort and passion into it, and the FB group has actually had some good discussions.
We had a kempo group from Minnesota come train with us in the garage a while ago. Nice group of folks, and they were nice enough to endure our Fargo impersonations, which I'm sure they've never encountered before when they say they're from Minnesota :)
