Woof all - posted with Guro Crafty's permission.

Warrior's Edge in New Braunfels Tx is celebrating our new facility - 4000 sq foot, with padded walls, MMA cage, and tons of other equipment - a GREAT venue for a little real contact stickfighting.
We are inviting anyone in the central Texas area who would like to come join the fun for a gathering May 7 from 2-4 PM. different levels of fighting from padded stick to unpadded and also staff.
Usual DBMA rules/mentality apply. If anyone is thinking of joining us or would like additional info, send me a personal message here and I'll get the info to you. If you know anyone in this area
that might be interested, pleeeeaaaaaase pass the info along. I'd like to start some sort of local tradition to get people tuned up for an eventual trip out to California.....

Thanks GD - really looking forward to it. We've got 6 committed, 3 on the fence - hoping to have 12 or more, so getting there. Words still filtering out slowly.
One fun thing - one of my former aikido students now studies pekiti with a group in San Antonio, but he's coming and we're going to try a little full contact bokken work - we've done LOTs of that over time but never in full contact DBMA style - that one should be interesting in particular. 2 guys are MMA cagefighters with minimal stick so that should be an interesting experiment in angling/evading also.
It feels really good to be getting something going where there wasn't before. I hope this is the start of something good!

Woof all!

I am happy to report that the first annual Warriors Edge Stickfighting Gathering was a success. 7 fighters, lots of spectators, good spirit. Lots of public exposure and education. 19 fights, no broken bones, and I only had to put in 3 sutures.   4 knife fights, 13 stick fights, one staff fight and one bokken fight (wooden Japanese swords).  And some good beer and spirit afterwards.  All in all a great day for the RCSF inauguration in Central Texas. Hopefully this will continue to grow each year. No fall one planned at the moment as I am getting ready for the DBMA Open Gathering, will probably have this around the 1st of March annually (for those who are marking their calendars!)
