"Roy as in the guy from the Gold Coast with the hot girfriend?"...sooo
csw0101... yeah bud,..I live on the Gold Coast (slowly becoming the
MMA capital of Oz hey?).
Tickets to the shows are not hard to get at all. Both times I've been
there I've made it a point of the first day I got there to go get tickets to
the events. There's a ticket office on the 5th floor of Korakuen Hall that
sells most tickets to most shows. Just go there and look at the maps of
the seating and point and pay. Spend the extra and get the good
ringside seats at any Korakuen Hall show...it's worth it. I paid $100 OZ
for a Pancrase seat and was 2nd row with a perfect view until Bas sat in
front of me..which ain't a bad thing ;p Just remember...we pay $100 to
sit ringside at SPARTAN so Bas or someone spilling bear on you is
money well spent.
Funny thing about tickets too...everybody (back home) asked me where
I bought tickets to PRIDE GP and laughed when I said a LAWSONS. It's
funny when you realize a LAWSONS is exactly like a 7-11 back home
Training's not a hard thing either... I have a huge list of gyms with
addresses (anyone have any I don't please e-mail me), and most are
very accomadating to let you train. I've only trained at AXIS and
Academy Az (both BJJ) but a friend of mine trains at TK's when he goes
and I just never went when I was there. TK's cool so you could just turn
up and it'd probably be cool. Tried to train at GUTSMAN but they spoke
next to NO english and just turned their heads like a confused puppy
and said "you know Shooto??"..after serveral minutes of trying to
explain I wanted to train I just left smiling.
Enough of my babbling...e-mail me above if ya want for more info.
