go check out meng's martial arts beforehand too, you wanna know where you're driving.
It's still Sept. 20th, at 1:00 right? 10 bucks?
What events shall I suspect? I'm expecting BJJ, but I'd also like to do boxing (Kickboxing if you guys won't let me do just boxing, and MMA if you guys want to see me suffer).
There also may or may not be drunken boxing matches.
Question: I have a mouthpiece, but no head gear. Should I get head gear, or will it be providedzors?
Double question: If I need to buy my own, what brand do ya'll suggest?
Triple Question: Who else (other than myself) is bringing their gi? I don't want to be the only butt scooting gi wearing bjj guy there. Damn kids and their no gi ways, always slipping and sliding all over each other while erotically brabo choking their "partner".
I'll bring my gi. All for some MMA sparring too. Don't own any headgear though, but have everything else.
We are definately on for Sept 20.
Bring your own gear!, WE (Mengs's)WILL NOT BE PROVIDING YOU WITH GEAR. At the very least a mouth piece.
I personally have some extra gear (headgear included) I dont mind sharing.
I hope to touch hands and mix it up with every single person that shows up, I up for training all ranges, striking and grappling until 1. I get knocked out and dont wake up 2. I get a limb broken 3.. I demonstrate so much skill that everyone just runs away in shear awe and reverence. Or 4 I get gassed out to the point I cant walk or keep my hands up anymore.
I'd bet on 4, 2 or 1 happening!!
All in all I hope everyone checks their egos at the door and we can all walk away with most of our teeth, no broken bones or serios injuries, a good reality check and most of all you learn something.
I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!!!
Your Ever Well Wisher,

I was planning on bringing my Gi top. Mostly because I don't feel like changing every 5 minutes when we decide to do something else. Also got a pair of boxing gloves, and these combat sport MMA training gloves (might go out and buy a pair of those MMA gloves they sell at Wally world), and some shin guards from my McDojo Krotty days. I don't own head gear either... so if you know of a good brand I could run out and buy that'd be greatly appreciated. I wanna get a Throwdown Fist so as much as I'd probably not like to I'll do MMA style sparring.
Just go easy on me I'm a delicate flower.
