Rich has reserved a block of rooms as follows:

Here are the rates we received:

These are some the best rates around, especially for the proximity we have to the Falls and various attractions.

Rooms are being held under "Straight Blast Gym International". To book a room, everyone must call in to the hotel individually and book their room under the SBGI group.

Be there!

Because you 'feel' a certain way regarding something, that doesn't mean it's true.

It just means you believe your own story.

To prove it, why not question the story and then see how you feel

Karl says...

Can't wait!

Quite a few heading that way from So Flo.

I am open to coach whatever you guys attending would like to see.

I would like to show some alternative passes against the butterfly
guard, new counter arm drag material, a quite unique guard passing
game, and the latest 1/2 guard / x-guard game (transitions, sweeps,
escapes) from the upcoming So Flo 3 set. are aware you have once again put Matt, Karl and me in the
same space and time? Remember what this does to your state of mind
let alone the universe at least the Niagra region. :)


Yes, I remember all too well. My therapist says that my recovery is making
progress though. One day at a time....

Good times!

Shawn, it will be good to see you again. I will try to keep this thread updated on info. That stated you really never know what kind of cool material will arise, so suggestion. . .bring a gi and boxing gloves regardless, and you can't lose. And be ready to have a great time.

Okay... okay... I just GOTTA go...
Now for important details...
..Will there be a Shawn of the Dead 2 :-)



I have some exciting news regarding a Yoga for athletes class that we will have available in the mornings for both camp members and their spouses. . .I will post details when I get back from Sweden.
