    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    New York throwdown July 25

    This time we mean two things: it and business.

    Date and time: July 25 at 1pm

    Location: New York Combat Sambo. 225 West 36th street, 6th floor
    (between 7th and 8th Avenues) A very short walk from Penn Station

    Post if you're coming and your particulars (height, weight, experience if we don't already know).

    I am coming. 6'3, 190 pounds.

    Most folks already know me and I'm normally all about the self-deprecating humor when it comes to my martial skill. But, I've been putting in a lot more training time per week, eating much better, and I'm actually somewhat pleased with my progression since the last one in December. Can't wait to try myself on people outside my gym to get some perspective on my improvement.

    Also can't wait for Jack to rape choke the new confidence out of me.

    if my leg is 100% by then, count me in: 5'7" and 150lbs of sanda/judo fury. if not i'll show up and shoot video. let me know if loaner gear is needed (i have loaner boxing gloves, mma gloves, kickboxing shinguards, mma shinguards and headgear.)

    I just realized today that the 25th is the same weekend as a church event I was supposed to go to, but screw that, I'm coming to this.

    I'm 6'3, 210 pounds with about a year of BJJ and nothing else, although I would like to do some MMA sparring so I can see how different groundwork really is when someone is punching you.

    I'll probably bring a friend who started BJJ with me and is about 6 feet/170ish pounds.

    I'll most likely be there.

    5'8" 135lbs. Trained Muay Thai for like 2 years on and off. I've done a little BJJ. Not sure if I can spar much if leg kicks are more than just love taps, but I'll see.

    Since we are doing the throwdown in conjuction with my open mat, we will likely have a few of my guys there as well.
