No pressures to spar. Jason the owner, is also offering a cardio or technique classes (Combat Cardio Conditioning, Krav Maga, Mixed Martial Arts Striking & Standup, Mixed Martial Arts Grappling & Ground Work) that we can do besides sparring so if that might interest you you’ll get a work out. Also, if you want to attend some classes at his gym prior to this event give him a call or drop by. Don’t worry about about drop in fee’s.

They gym has plenty of 16 oz gloves and head gear, if you have boxing gloves bring them. Mouth guards you might want to get and can pick it up at any sporting store for under $10.

After we can BBQ, and if anyone else would like to bring food or drinks please do so and post it up and I’ll update the thread. I’ll make sure I bring enough water for everyone.
