May 31st, Burnaby B.C. West Coast Can-Am Championships!
I'm gonna compete in my first tournament and its the Can-Am championships! man I rock!
Anyways I'm coming up from Bellingham to compete in the pankration event. So I can get a small amount of experience before my first mma fight. Any of you vancouver guys gonna be there?
Why you would go to Canada for your first Pankration tournament, rather than one of the ones put on by FightLeague.org I don't understand. Several of the Pankration tournaments here have been total clusterfucks, depending on who runs them. Expect the rules you read online to be thrown out the window, weight classes to be changed the day of, the director to cherry pick who fights whom and even the rules covered in the rules meeting to be ignored. Oh yeah, and everyone sandbags. Nobody goes in the advanced division, you'll even sometimes fight some guys with pro MMA experience in the beginner (6 months or less) division.
Aside from that, best wishes! I hope it goes well for you (and everyone else who had the misfortune of deciding to enter).
wtf i didnt necro this ****.
anyway i assume this thing happens every year, so question still stands
