    Speaking personally, I'd prefer later in the year. But that doesn't stop anyone else from sorting something out earlier than that.

    Also the throwdown fist is for mma sparring only? I did not know that.
    See this and this. Used to be just for showing up, but people started taking them a little too seriously, IIRC.

    I don't think I would ever get one then, as my grappling skills are zero and I prefer sparring under a San Da type rule set.

    Cool - more options the better, so would be good if you could find out costs and availability. That means so far we've got Meerkat's place in South Kensington, 70 for 2-3hours on a weeknight, the 5 per person place in Edgware, and now a possible Guildford option.
    Any further info on that place, Jadon, like costs, size, availability?

    In terms of dates for London, my preference would be winter. Which reminds me, could try Brighton again, which was pretty good last time. Marcio is regularly at RGA and has a Facebook page (no idea if he checks it much, though), so shouldn't be too difficult to get further details.

    We probably could pay to use the matted room at the Vie Academy in Farringdon but I just never remember to ask :(

    When are you next training? I'll send you a reminder or something: always good to have more options, and I'd like to have a look at the Vie Academy anyway. :icon_wink

    Think I'm training tomorrow. It's hard to keep track what with work sending me all over the bloody country for meetings.

    I'm always interested. Can bring sticks and fencing masks if anyone wants to play that sort of game.
