I would be in for Thursday.
Who is doing sambo at Doc's gym? Do you have a website or contact info?
I did not know of any sambo in that area.
Is that a typo? where it says "SOBMO" instead of Sambo. The school has good bjj and judo. I thought that they had sambo too... Or did. Danzan ryu is not taught there any more. The site needs to be updated.
"We specialize in-
-Olympic sport Judo (what is Judo and Kodokan Judo?)
-Brazilian and Japanese Jiu Jitsu
-Self Defense training "
Bathroom Remodel Fu for me. I still don't have the damn thing done. Its going to be a couple more weeks for me. I think I can line a space up in October. I'm sure BASE853 would be up for it, you may want to PM him.

Reason: added MN Throwdown link
No, SOMBO is not a typo. Some people spell it that way in english. But, the correct translation is SAMBO.
They list sambo as an art they teach, but have no classes in it. I will ask around about their sambo credentials. I don't know them, but the name Olson sounds familiar. I would bet it is a judo oriented school which simply puts sambo in there for marketing. I could be wrong though.

North star Judo used to be there. But they had a fight with some of the owners or somthing about too much stress on kata and not focussing on randori. The bjj teacher is from brazil. He is really good at judo and bjj.
Here is a link to a quick write up about the sem:

Damnit no one can recieve PMs these days. Okay, attempted message basically said I'd still like to meet up somewhere to do some training tomorrow evening, though its getting colder and darker so early I'm not sure we'll be able to find a decent spot. But I'm still up for whatever, I can wear layers!
