Florida / Central Fla venue / Southeast USA region Throwdown
I was wondering if you guys were interested in setting up a throwdown in the SE region. SC, GA, AL and FL areas.
I was thinking we should set something up in the Gainesville, Jacksonville, Lake City areas of Florida so we can cater to Sofla as well as the states mentioned above. What do you guys think?
Any bullshido members in the above mentioned cities? Can you guys try and find a venue?
I can try what I can in gainesville to find a venue, but it is probably going to cost some money. There is a school here with decent room for matwork and a boxing ring that I can hit up for a Sunday or Saturday afternoon. But this would probably cost some money. I think a 10 dollar donation from all members interested would completely cover it. With money left, I can buy some gatorade, food, mouthguards, etc for everyone. My club has a relationship with this school so I can probably work something out.
But first, I'd like to guage some interest.
If any instructors in full-contact/grappling arts on this forum would like to participate, we can schedule a short seminar / coaching session if you guys think that'd be fun. No $$$ compensation though.
The date would be anywhere as soon as end of June to as late as early Fall.
What do you guys think?

I may be up for it. I've been training BJJ for a month and a half now, and I'd like to see some more of the bullies around here. Tallahassee's just a hop, skip, and jump away from central FL, so I may be up for it if it gets really well organized.

Schedule permitting I might try to make it up. It is a long drive from down here though.

I can probably make it. Depending on when it is! I've been wanting to go to a throwdown for a while.

Oddly, I think I'll be down that way the second week of July. Where would we do it in Gainesville, dwkfym? The O'Dome gymnasium? :smile:“Most people do not do, but take refuge in theory and talk, thinking that they will become good in this way” -- Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics, II.4

I was going to ask sensei keith at the local school. Or my club can host an "open tourney" like the judo club does at the o-dome, but if we do that, we have to wait until the beginning of the semester. (of course, there would be nothing truly competitive about the TD) This would also depend on the turnout..
Lets try to isolate a date then. Here is my thing though, I'll be out of country from July 17th to Aug 22nd, I'd really prefer to do it after that. I have to get ready for finals all of july before I leave the country.
