    TORONTO Throwdown!!! Aug 2008

    OK we need another Throwdown!!!

    I'm thinking Sunday Aug 3 or 10th in the evening 6-8ish.


    Of course we can always do it at the 'fighting arts collective' but there has been much talk of holding it in Kensington Market @ East West Hapkido.

    Lets get the ball rolling, confirm a place, date and time.

    Also take a look on face book, I'm gonna start an event there ( I'm Shawn JKD) that way we can confirm who is coming and keep track of the details as they firm up or change.

    K folks looking forward to your posts.

    Shawn

                  Hye Guys - sorry f I caused some cofusion on anothe post. I've been waiting for another Toronto throwdown too and had posted looking to hold one the first wek of Aug at my club at Victoria Park and Queen. I'm located at 2495 Queen St east in the beaches and run my club - Academy of Hapkido & Combat out of an old family friends Dojo - Toronto Shotokan Karate. The location is nice and we can all hit queen st. for food or drinks if a location and time has not been set in stone - otherwise, I'll be at the Dupont location for Aug.8 at 6pm. If the location is still flexible we can do Aug 8, or 10th at my club and if on the 10th we can do an early thrwdown and get out for the early afternoon. Let e know what you all think or reack me on facebook under Konan Wade Jones.

                    Sorry for the confusion that is

                    August 10th / 2008

                    6pm

                    Fighting Arts Collective . com for info.


                    I would love to have the next one out there in the beaches, however, for this one since no other offers for space had been made here, or on face book and because I have almost 20 people confirmed already I'm gonna have to stand on this one being at my place.

                    I'm looking forward to meeting you there Konan...and we shall plan then for the next one, or the one after.. at your place, the guys at East West Hapkido in Kensington market have also voiced an interest in hosting again. These Throwdowns are all about getting to meet eachother and see other spaces and styles, I'm looking forward to getting out of my space in into the next ones.

                      Hey Shawn - good to hear from you. I have a good friend that has been to the last two - Jeremy. I just want to come and network, spar/roll a little and get some of my guys out there and meeting other martial artists. I will be there for sure and will have 3 others with me that are my students. I have a question though....my son and another who's 12 but who's father is the canadian super middle weight Kickboxing champ would like to come and see what its all about - they will also roll and spar with each other too if its' okay - on a final note - I will hold the next Throwdown for sure if that's fine at my club for hopefully just before the holiday season if it's good with everyone else. Anyway Shawn, looking forward to seeing everyone.

                          I might be out of town at this time, so I will have to confirm/deny at another time.

                            I hope there can be an MMA/striking + takedowns section; last time it was pretty much just striking and rolling.

                              Ya last couple times there was more mma and less seperation between the ground and standup. I'm sure this time will take it even further in that direction. Got a number of fighters coming out, some with upcomming events in mma.

                              I was looking at the facebook event today and over 20 people are confirmed...I think it will be a very good event.

                              Just remember, all fights are by challenge...so if you want somthing specific..ask for it.

                              Personally, I'd do anything even MMA with sticks...

                              Looking forward to a good Throwdown
