    Okay I have signed up with www.montrealbbj.com - the head instructor is a Carlson BB and is just what I was looking for. So far I have just been to the no-gi class on Sundays a couple of times and will keep it that way for at least another month.

    Hello everyone.

    -Krumpus, what rules did you guys fight under in the throw down, do you plan on having another one any time soon?

    -DJR, when I visited Mr Gelinas AKA sled dog’s school he told me that there was no stick fighting in Montreal because no one was interested, just regular FMA classes unfortunately. Is anybody local interested in weapons sparring but with slightly altered rules from DBMA, as in incorporating projectiles?

    -Shuma Gorath, when I trained at Tri Star, the kickboxing, bjjj etc, were split up into separate classes, there was no MMA class as such. The only sparring I saw was Ivan Mengivar and Donald Ouimet going at it in the ring to get ready for an upcoming TKO event. In the few months I was there I saw David Loiseau bust an overly aggressive noob’s nose in boxing sparring once. I was disappointed to see the pros didn’t help the regular members of the gym learn by sparring or rolling with them on a regular basis though (which is why I joined in the first place, I even asked David, “can I train with you guys?” before signing up!)

    -MartialNoob, Do you know if the bjj purple belt instructor at tristar is Ivan Mengivar?

    -Tofu, on the H2O website Richard Ho writes that the training is not geared to just sport mma but focuses on self defense as well. Do you guys ever spar with groin and eye attacks (with eye protection and a cup of course!) instead of just standard kickboxing? If not what do you guys do different than most MMA clubs?

    Thanks in advance for any information any of you guys might provide.

    I don't know - I live in Vancouver, and was only in Montreal on weekends while working in Ottawa years ago. Not sure what you mean by sparring with projectiles, I'm not sure that if anybody's doing that anyhwhere....

    There's Doce Pares school somewhere in Mtl that does stick sparring, but it's mostly WEKAF style from what I saw (i.e. striking with sticks only, and lots of armour).

    LOL, reminds me of the time I got kicked out of PE in highschool for accidentally slashing somebody above the eye during a road hockey game. The guy was crosschecking me from behind, and I stabbed backwards trying to poke him in the gut, but he had bent forward so the stick cut him on the forehead.

    The PE teacher wasn't looking, and thought I was some some sort of head-hunting psycho when he looked over and saw my "victim" with blood all over his face. I spent the next half hour convincing a guidance counsellor that it wasn't deliberate, and that I wasn't an 'emotionally troubled youth' with "problems at home".

    It was kickboxing and later in MMA rules.It was a lot of fun.

    I can't say when's the next time because it wasn't me who organised the first one and my training has become very sporadic with work and school lately.

    But if someone else wants to than by all means go a head.
