    Open Mat ($10.00) Coconut Creek FL, this Friday

    Hi folks,

    The school I train at (South Florida, Ft. Lauderdale area):

    Barett Hapkido
    1799 N. State Road 7
    Bell Plaza Margate, Florida

    Is offering open mats for a $10.00 fee Friday nights (starting 10/24, this Friday) for anyone who wants to come. There will be:

    * Open randori
    * Ground fighting
    * Sparring (probably on the lighter side)

    Start: 7:30 PM
    End: 9:00 PM

    It would be very cool to get some of the people on this board there.

    You can wear anything you want (sweat pants, a gi, etc.). We require a mouth-piece and suggest a cup (duh).

    This should be friendly cross-training. We are looking forward to working with other martial arts and everyone is welcome.

    -Marco

    I used to train there, and I wrote up a brief review of them here:

    If I get over this cold I currently have, I'll be sure to make it there.

    (BTW, this may or may not belong in the throwdowns forum. The mods might move it if they decide it does.)

      Hmm... maybe I can make it. But $10.00, really? I'm willing to come up there and train with ya'll, but ATT is right down the road...

      Sounds like fun, I'd love to meet you. I just can't see driving all the way up there and slapping down an additional ten bucks for a hapkido joint.

      Wave the fee and I'll swing through.

      Jeff- where do you train currently?

        I might swing down there and check it out sometime, just for a chance to roll with some new people. What time does this start/end?

          Start 7:30 PM, End 9:00 PM.

            Budo,

            At ATT Coconut Creek currently.

            I'll go (unless I still feel sick). It will be fun to see some of the folks I haven't seen in a while ... and crush them of course. I think ATT also charges mat fees if you just walk in, so $10 doesn't seem like a big deal. They have to pay the rent like everyone else.

              Do they? I'm a stuck-up biyatch, don't mind me.

              I train at ATT Pines, we should meet up and train sometime.

              Lemme see what my schedule is, maybe I'll swing through up there with you.

                Cool, but right now I'd say there is only a 50/50 chance I'll make it this week.

                  Oh, and I know for a fact that this Marco guy thinks that BJJ sucks and hopes we show up so he can crush us.

                    Hahaha, I was about to say "this is where Jeffrey used to train"... and speak of the devil. Get well soon brother.

                    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

                        Any takers? I know Jeff is sick but it would definitely be cool to see some people from here show up tonight.

                          I'm still pretty sick. My wife may show up though. I guess next week is Halloween, but I will try to make it the following week. Maybe we can get some bullies to show up then.

                            Marco,

                            Will this be going on this Friday? If so I'll try to make it.
