No "kicking foot pads" or whatever they call that **** !
Nice. I'll be there.
If no one actually has a first-aid kit, then let's share the cost of getting one (I think that they're $40 or so) and keep it for future meet-ups.
In other news, there's been a lot of [painful] discussion about levels of contact, etc. As far as I'm concerned, if you're hitting the other person hard enough to make them want to avoid your strikes, then that is sufficient for learning-- at least at our current levels. I don't know who here, if anyone, is ready for full-contact. Not I, anyway. However, I'm definitely up for some matches at "hard enough to make you move out of the motherfuckingway-contact.
Whether people want to designate this approach as Throwdown-worthy, or simply as a mutual wank-fest, is entirely up to them.
Finally, I'd like to see everyone state their goals for this session ahead of time. That way, we can plan things out a little better, including matches and drills.
Wat'choo boys think?
I've got all the required gear minus the First Aid kit.
Just pick a day and I'll be there. I have work to do.
Looking forward to seeing the hard contact!

Other than that, contact level will be decided on a match-by-match level.
But in regards to "rolling only" sparring sessions, there is no reason to hold back,so...
I would like to do the Toronto Challenge.
Shumagorath you are invited to step up and participate.
Your lack of 'MMA training' does not matter. You have training in stand up, and are a better grappler than I.
We don't need a first aid kit. Just bring a **** load of ice and towels.
If we have a cooler, we can store any limbs that come off in it.

i'm in if the day is alright with me.
i'd like to take up piz's toronto challenge, but what i would really like to work on as well would be more grappling essentials. maybe options when i have the back, guardwork, guardwork, guardwork (i.e. being in and pulling), more options from side control, and of course tightening up my rnc.
i hope all the grapplers will be willing to help a sandbag such as myself. in return i can show you INVINCIBLE KATAS!!!!!!!
