    By March, I'll hopefully be in a new job and feel a lot more financially secure than right now, so count me in.

    I'm in for March. I've been off a lot recently with various injuries and missed the last four or so throwdowns despite intending to go. I'll be all healed up and ready to (attempt to) kick some arse.

    I haven't been to a throwdown before, but would definitely like the opportunity to meet up in March and get some friendly gi and nogi sparring in.

    Unfortunately I have been out of training since mid November due to a combination of getting the flu and having another costal cartilage / costochondral junction injury. I should be up to pretty much full speed by then and back in training, but the risk of catching a full force teep or side kick to my chest is too much to warrant any Thai or MMA style sparring.

    As this would be the first Uk meet I would attend, do I need to send the organizer any personal details about who I am, my experience level and the club that I train at?

    Since I would be traveling from Liverpool the day before booking a cheap hotel or B & Bs for the night before is probably a good idea, if anyone has any suggestions?

    Cheers.

    Mark.

    Normally we all just turn up, introduce ourselves and then see who wants to spar. Its pretty informal, so unless Jadon is running things differently, should be fine to arrive, give him some money, then go spar with someone.

    If you want an idea of how they normally run, I've got write-ups of the ones I've attended here.

    The write ups were helpful, you are definitely right about it being informal. I didn't think they would be run like open mats with sparring and technique sharing, seeing a few highlights of US throwdowns which showed lots of suplexes and almost full contact stand up may of given me the wrong impression.

    A more relaxed format is probably a good thing, as I can't really afford to get badly injured again during the final year of my PhD.
