Style: BJJ (blue)/Judo (blue)
By the way, these are the links I found when I first came out to Vancouver. Just two versions of the same page. I don't know which one is more outdated now. Some good info if anyone cares to check 'em out (some of the same stuff ShiroNinja posted too):

WTF!! there is BJJ/MMA in that World Gym?! I had no idea, Hemant. Will make it a point to do a drop-in there in the coming week. Maybe I can sneak in there next Thursday.
I refuse to do any judo though. Just a personal preference......
I'm still easing into mortgage.... That's why I like the catch-as-catch-can wrestling for the next few months -- $20 / mo (+ $100 registration) is ungodly cheap even if it is just once a week!
I am 99% certain ALL of those places I listed are above $100 for 2+ classes / week.
Trade-off for the no belt-testing fees.
Now or never.

ShiroNinja: I'm with you with respect to cost. I'm also going to wait on joining a BJJ club for the time being.
On another note, it's looking more and more like we're not throwin' down this weekend again. Neil's out, Cracky's out. Derrick: any of the other people free this weekend?

Hem, I don't think anyone's free this weekend, let's postpone 1 more week gwrr, are you dropping in to that link you posted a few days ago? Aren't they open mat today or something?

Derrick: next weekend's fine. Columbia MA (the link you mentioned) has open mat but I guess it's only for students of the club. We wouldn't be able to crash it.
However, I contacted the guy and he said the place is free after 1230 on Saturdays and that we could rent it out if we wanted. He didn't want to discuss price via email so I said someone would call him when our group is ready to rent. We could do it next Saturday but we'd have to have a decent sized group together because it may end up too expensive if we're only, like, 3 people.
There's also Burnaby Catch Wrestling this Wednesday from 800pm-930pm as I announce every week.

Dare I ask if anyone's up to throw down this weekend? Derrick? Cracky? Neil? ShiroNinja?

Anytime yo -- this week-end is free and clear.
The week-end after my korean girl is returning to Vancouver after a 2.5 month absence though so I may be tied up.
(with a nylon rope).

I'm sorry guys my right ankle is shot so I'm out of commission this week. Twisted it playing soccer, if you guys are meeting up though, give me a call, I want to watch a Throwdown at least hehe

Okay, I guess that cans it for today, then. ShiroNinja: no offense but I think a throwdown starring just the two of us is a little too romantic for my tastes. I'll see you at Burnaby Catch on Wednesday.
