South Bay JiuJitsu Club
Location 1: Some park in the south bay, probably in Lakewood park, sunnyvale.
When: April, not sure what time. 2 or 6 -- probably when its hot later.
Location 2: Every month, once or twice a month, I plan going to places that have open mat or are really cheap.
When depends on when they are available, usually Sundays.
If we go, remember its a business and they are letting us be there for free. Their potentially paying customers are most important and we should help them with their buiness by helping other people there and to be nice. Being nice is my problem. Ugh. Check out the 713-580-6885 when the times are. I will announce it on facebook (i'll try 2 weeks) ahead of time.
As I say elsewhere, I don't want to take advantage of these guys. Its to help you figure out what you like and if we can be nice and professional and help out their students first before yourself.

Meetings will be investigative or more formal setting like at an academy. Depends on what people want each day. I personally want to investigate bjj, catch wrestling, 10th planet, and techniques that are unusual. Counter moves and counter to counters and to practice them with different people. Please have health insurance, or we can't roll hardcore.
It got this from a website....
Striking, punching, or kicking
Slamming (picking someone up and forcefully smashing them down)
Eye gouging, hair pulling, fish hooking, oil checking
Grabbing individual fingers or bending fingers backwards
Spine and neck cranks
Heelhooks and twisting the knee
Scissors takedown (kani-basami)
Here is a list of what would be nice but is not mandatory.
|· A GI or judo outfit. There are probably some ones you can by on google, but you can check amazon or ebay too. HINT: You can get judo outfits pretty cheap at Nichi Bei Bussan NB, 140 Jackson St, San Jose, CA 95112. I did for my crazy ex gf years ago (and one nice gf before that) and the outfits were pretty cheap and I didn't care if we ruined them. Always buy them one or two sizes too big because when you wash them over time they will shrink. Heck I dry mine in the dryer that you are not suppose to do, but I buy it too big on purpose. Mold and mildew develops after 6 hours and I don't want to use chemicals.|
|·It would be nice for people to bring 4'x10'x2" Gymnastics Gym Folding mats or 4'x8'x2" Gymnastics Gym Folding which would can get on ebay for less than $70 sometimes. I will bring one or two 4'x10'x2" mats with me. I am not fond of the thin mats and connect together. They tend to move around a lot and aren't that great.|
|Protection like a cup, rash guard, would be nice. Remember, we could be rolling on the ground if you get off the mat. Be prepared to get bruises and slight cuts if you leave your skin bare. Also, any clothes or GI's will probably get grass stained. Don't bring your competition GI.|
