Resurrecting this thread again!
Tonight's the last night of training for Burnaby Catch. They're shutting down for the summer to hopefully begin again in the fall sometime if they can find a venue. I'm checking it out 800-930 pm. Tonight is ground work night so it should be more fun for BJJ types.
ShiroNinja, are you coming out tonight? You should also check out West Coast BJJ/MMA in Burnaby. They reopened in another location this week, down on Kingsway close to MetroTown. I'm going to check that out next Tuesday or Thursday. http://www.jiujitsulife.com/location.htm#burnaby
On another note, July 5th is the submission series here in Vancouver. I might actually be officiating (awesome way to get in for free and maybe score a t-shirt). If anyone's interested: http://submissionseries.com/ it is happening very close to anyone in the Burnaby/East Van area. Might be good; they have both submission only no-gi and traditional BJJ rules going.
I also really think it's time to meet up for another Lower Mainland throwdown. Who's in?
Anyone? Beuler? Beuler?
My work schedule is pretty weird so i can never plan anything. I have barely even worked out since i last saw you. we need to secure a better location for another meet-up if we want to do that again. y'know, a place with like....mats and stuff.
Hey Neil, if you check earlier in this thread, I mentioned that we do have a place to train, right here in Burnaby:
We just have to get a couple of people together to defray the rental cost. I contacted the guy but he never quoted me a price and I didn't pursue it because there were no definite plans for throwing down.
Anyone else interested? I'm actually getting in both judo and BJJ these days but I'd love to get together for some striking or no-gi grappling.

Nah missed Tuesday 'cause my building was having a yearly strata meeting! That jiujitsulife place moved to Kingsway now so they are less lucrative to me. =(

Now or never.
ShiroNinja, let me know when you're planning on checking out west coast BJJ. I'm going to be there next on Tuesday.
That BJJ / MT place is a good choice. Horrible website but best training in the mid-Burnaby area.
However I've decided I'm too lazy to be biking back / forth the 5 km for 3 classes a week.
I'm gonna just gym it up for the summer and stick to the beach... then more wrestling in the fall.
ShiroNinja: the gym and the beach sound like good spots for the summer. I hope your technique doesn't get too rusty! West Coast actually has more than 3 classes a week; they've added wrestling and no-gi/mma to the curriculum. I guess if someone had the energy, they could train there every day. I'm just managing twice a week at best, though.
We should get the Vancouver throw-down crew together for a round of crappling on a 3' by 3' mat in some tiny classroom once again this summer (see videos earlier in this thread...). Any takers?
Hi Vancouver friends!
I'll be in town mid-August to visit family and do some white water rafting. Maybe even visit the island a bit. Still working on final confirmation of dates, but would love to get together with some of you.
What say ye?
PizDoff: the Vancouver throw-down crew has actually only gotten together once (see videos earlier in thread). If you're in the Vancouver area, feel free to come check out West Coast BJJ/MMA. Not technically in Vancouver but close enough. See the link a few posts back.
yay! count me in. i'll buy the first round lol
