    Portland, OR: Looking for regular Sunday sparring partner(s)

    My lack of time is becoming problematic for me as my addiction to training becomes progressively more severe. During the workweek, I can only manage three hours of training (I have a job with long hours and a forty-five minute commute). Iím free on the weekends, and I do two hours on Saturday, but my gym is closed on Sunday. To supplement this, Iím looking for a sparring partner, or to set up a sparring group, for regular Sunday sessions. Iím asking around at my gym about it, but I figured Iíd reach out to my local bullshidoka too.

    Hereís a brief MA bio to help you figure out if youíd find sparring with me useful:

    Height: 5í9Ē

    Weight: 155 lbs

    Age: 22

    Training:
    Grappling: BJJ white belt (4 months of training).
    Wrestling (standup): Untrained.
    Striking: Untrained.

    Competitive Results:
    Submission Wrestling: 5/5/07 Sub League 07 Event 3: zero wins, two losses, two draws in the 149 and under class of the adult novice division.

    If you prefer less noobish sparring partners, thatís fine, I completely understand. But if youíre better than me and donít mind sparring noobs, I donít mind getting my ass kicked. Or rather, I mind it, but I realize that it helps to make me better.

    Any kind of full contact sparring would be valuable, from pure amateur wrestling rounds to kickboxing to moderate intensity MMA-style stuff. If itís anything other than sub grappling, though, youíll probably have to run me through the basics before we go at it.

    At the moment, Iíve got a venue in the form of my garage. Itís carpeted, and while the floor space is small, it would work just fine for two, and could probably work for as many as four, so long as only one match proceeds at a time. Thereís also a recreation center pretty close to me that will rent out a large room and mats for $50 an hour, if we end up needing more space. Obviously, the cost means thatís only an option if weíve got a bunch of guys participating. If youíve got access to a better facility, thatíd be cool.

    If youíre interested, let me know in this thread and Iíll PM you my e-mail address so we can figure out the details.

    I don't mind training beginners, but I'm moving to seattle in late june so it doesn't look like I'll be around much longer. It depends... how good looking are you?

    I'm pretty damned hot, and I've been told I'm both salty and delicious.

    Seriously though, it'd be pretty awesome to get a few beginner MT lessons from you before you took off. I'm PMing you with my e-mail address now.

    Impact Jiu-Jitsu in Beaverton. It was a Straight Blast Gym, now it's independent, but they're still affiliated (still have membership reciprocity at other gyms).

    Because of my schedule, I've only done one standup or "MMA" series class in the four months I've been there. Those classes mix boxing, Muay Thai and wrestling. Even in MMA 1 (the starter course) there's a strong focus on sparring. There are some tough conditioning drills, too, and takedown defense is a big theme for those. Guys in the MMA classes can expect to spend the last few minutes of most classes running, jump-squatting and sprawling.
