Thanks, Steve! I can't wait to see you and the rest of the crew in November. I am trying to get people jazzed about this. This is a chance to see and compete in probably the best jacket grappling rule set out there. Thanks again for coming back to Texas. Any word on who all is bringing teams? Are Gregg and Aaron coming down with their guys?

So far we are getting great feedback (you can now RSVP and forward the new facebook event page too). I have heard from Aaron...he will bring a team from Seattle, my team will be there of course, Reilly's team from Mezger's school and Faixa Preta MMA, Doug Fournet's team from Louisiana, Carlos Cummings team from Florida. I have also gotten many inquiries from various clubs in texas...even one in Alaska! ECS will have a team obviously. Even Coach Josh from bullshido contacted me with intentions of attending. I think this may be our biggest tourny yet.

I think that promotion is fucking awesome. I fear men in shorts. What if I showed up with the top and nothing on underneath?"We often joke -- and we really wish it were a joke -- that you will only encounter two basic problems with your 'self-defense' training.
1) That it doesn't work
2) That it does work"

Due to some unforseen circumstances, we needed to change our event location. It actually worked out very well and we have secured a great new facility for our event. Please make note that the event WILL NOT be held at the Central Texas Performing Arts Center. We will now be hosting our event at the Austin Sports Center(Cedar Park).
New Hotel information will be coming soon.
