The city sponsors through cheap facilities.
If your club is connected to a (recognized) federation, you can get A-level insurance (MMA, Muay Thai, etc...).
If you are not connected to a federation you get B-level insurance. This is included in the lease of the facility.Originally Posted by Jiujitsu77Originally Posted by HumanzeeOriginally Posted by jk55299 on Keysi Fighting Method

The guy paying to host and giving his time to organize people shouldn't have to listen to a bunch of fucking monday morning qb's on another continent tell him what he is and isn't or can and can't organize.

If the site (BS.net) hosted the event, purchased the insurance, and was liable for any incidents that occurred, I would agree with you. As it is, the events are posted here and organized by it's members, but the gym owner and event organizer has deal with any **** that goes down.

And every year some drama starts a few months after the EuroMega, it's frustrating.

Holy mackerel, I've been to 8-9 Bullshido TD's and never seen any fallout from any of them. I suspect this is the fault of a few individuals, rather than the norm given the relative rarity of TD drama over an almost ten year period.
I can understand Zendokan's issues with finding space that will allow any type of contact. In the past, the Austin crew has experienced the same issue.
Some of you need to train a whole lot more and post a whole lot less. Rafe.
Edit: So, basically, I agree with IIF.

Again, you're trying to make this (EDIT: what I'm saying) more than it is.

I'm not tring to make it anything. I just don't think anyone should ever be banned from attending a TD, and I don't think anyone has the power to do such a thing. Look how this idea was tossed around by Rafe earlier in the thread. He wanted to ban TS just for being critical of him. Then he painted him as a rogue, dangerous sparring partner. An assessment you pretty much rejected. If we want to seriously consider excluding people from our events for liability reasons, at least put the decision in the hands of more than one person. Just because Rene is not the sort to abuse power doesn't mean individuals should have that kind of power in the first place. As you pointed out, Rafe wanted to start organizing TD's, and he would have abused this power by his own admission. Unless he was lying about that
Edit: saw your edit. I might have specifically with your point. Not on purpose if that's what you suggested.
