Friendly Fisticuffs 2018 August - Manchester, UK

Event Description

Open sparring event for gentlemanly strikers (boxers, kickboxers, karateka, kempoka, etc.) at The Wrestling Factory (aka "Pippa's") in Manchester, UK.

Any striking or striking+grappling rules and intensity are allowed as long as it suits the abilities of the combatants on the day with a reasonably low risk of injury, and is clearly understood and agreed to by the combatants before the match.

To further keep risks low, the first few rounds of fighters who did not match each other previously will be in the public ring in the main room with refereeing provided.

The place has a main room (with ring and wrestling mats), plus two separate matted rooms, so about 4 fighting areas. Use of the areas is freely negotiated between participants (except that first-timers will be prioritized for the main room first), so please be considerate in the lengths of your matches so that everyone has a fair chance to get matches.

Bring your own sparring gear; and bring extras if you can! (Beginners: at the very least bring your own gum shield - it costs only a few quids. Or ask someone local to acquire one for you, there are Martial Arts shops in Manchester.)

The place has toilet, hot shower, and a tea kitchen.

Bring your own refreshments, or arrange with people with cars to get a few cartons of bottled water or anything else you like. (Keep the place clean and tidy though.)

The only costs will be the venue hire, which for four hours is 30 GBP + 5 GBP per person; plus if you feel like chipping in some extra for tea & supplies for the venue owners. (If we end up renting for longer (see below), expect the cost to go up accordingly - in which case you are welcome to just chip in for the blocks of time where you actually participated, or the entire event if you wish.)

Starting and ending time is tentative - please state what would suit you. The place is booked for Aug 12 Sunday 12-4 PM, but available to book the entire day. Furthermore the previous day (Aug 11) is also available after the OWG Wrestling Day concludes (around 6PM). Please state what time(s) you would be interested in.

Come and enjoy!

Seniorboxer (18 gold) 8/13/2018 8:09 AM

This meeting ended in a long sparring with hertsdog. Nobody else came. So we had the ring for us all the time, in the breaks a good talk. So I missed nothing.

Setting up a meet for boxers seems not so easy.
