Many Striking arts like Karate, Tae Kwon Do and even Hapkido are learning and enjoying the Grappling style, as do the Grapplers like the Striking styles.
Its opportunity to get all the local MA schools to come out and meet people on the same circuts. This is going to be a great weekend of training with some very talented individuals and hopefully many in-town and out-of-town MA schools.

I would like have sport Jiu-Jitsu matches along with our Karate, Kickboxing and Submission tournaments.
I think other schools would participate in that style of competition as well. It is a great way to introduce MMA to Karate and other striking styles at a young time in their career's.

Darb you bitch! The sleeves in your rash guard are too small for me and you must have had your shorts custom made cause there is no way my balls will fit into your panties.

Well the answer to your questions...first of all we have lots of karate students in the area that enjoy my fights in the area and they are excited to come and train with us, so thats why all the self-promotion:) So if you know of any local schools out west here feel free to let em' know The Usual Suspects are gonna be in town.

So, I have studied Karate, TKD, JKD, and a few other arts as well so we have a pretty good interest out west here with cross-training other arts. It all comes down to Mixed Martial Arts for me, however, I enjoy practicing all the other styles that I have learned as well, so this is a good oportunity to introduce the Arts to " The n'X-Generation of Mixed Martial Arts Sport Fighters. The Karate, TKD and striking art's in our area.
There's some selfless promotion for ya..AFC2???
