D.C area throwdown in March
Ok, this is still in the developing stages, but me with some of the guys on the sherdog.com grappling forum are looking into putting on a serious throwdown in March. I have proposed the 21 and/or the 22nd as possible dates. I think we are looking at sites in NOVA. Anybody down?
Ok, EDIT, we are now looking at the first weekend in Feb!

WHAT: First East Coast Sherdog Grapplers Forum Throwdown!
Where: 21580 Atlantic Blvd, Suite 110, Sterling, VA 20166 @ Synergy MMA Synergy Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Muay Thai, MMA, boxing, silat and wrestling
When: Feb. 7th. Time: 2pm---?
Details: From what I understand the Mat fee is around 10 bucks. Bring extra money for food and snacks.
All grapplers should bring their own equipment.
i might possibly show up with a few people. hope your open mat goes on for at least 3 hours. depends on whether or not my buddies want to pay a mat fee. we be poor.
I'm definitely down. I'll probably get choked out all day but hey.
Here's my thoughts from yesterday's TD
1) Synergy MMA is a great place, with a very nice facility, excellent coaches and great students. If I lived closer than an hour away (in good traffic) I'd definitely train there.
2) It being my first real roll BJJ style I've discovered that I can hang on the ground! Provided I'm rolling with a white belt who I outweigh by 40+ pounds, other than that I got murdered. Definitely need to train up on the ground more.
3) Was a great experience, thanks to all who showed up and choked me out.
Dammit. How did I not know about this...
