February/March Throwdown ( Redemption)
Tis the time of year for our routine "mid-winter" salami fest !!
Now, as many of you know, the ***** display of the LAST throwdown has brought about much heated debate and discussion.
So, in the spirit of the NEW throwdown ( returning to the old), this Toronto Throwdown will be know as:
Toronto Throwdown: REDEMPTION !!
There will still be instructional.
There will still be "light" rolling and sparring for those so inclined.
But, there will also be, for the first time, HARD contact MMA sparring.
So bring you mouth guard, your cup, will, power of attorney and picture of your sister ( over 18 please).
Now, to the important stuff:
Where and when?
I am not sure IF the rec center will "allow" us to go hard contact ( Matt, we need your input on this).
We need to find out what is the best date.
ALL matches will be refereed , even the light contact ones.

I'm good with any night but a Tuesday.
I also think we need to ensure a minimum level of hand protection. i know my 14oz gloves are fine (if I want to try grappling in them) but I wouldn't trust the crappy cotton gloves that I have from karate-sparring days.
And some minimal type of shin protection. Bare bone on bare bone is fine in a ring, but I'd hesitate to let any novices do it.Regards,
