MMA for Knights?
« on: 2015-04-23, 14:26:46 »
Part of the M1 promotion in Russia- originally used as 'filler' material for in between MMA matches.

Totally crazy or totally awesome?  I'm thinking, a bit of both- but that's what we're into, right boys?

Been toying with the idea.  Wife's less than enthused, though.

Whomever wants info on ACL I can put them in touch with the right people. I am a referee for them and I have a bunch of friends that fought in the IMCF and now going to fight in the BoTN.

Yea we are starting one because the ones up here in NH suck and there are only two of them.

I am wondering if there's not a group in the DC metro area - I've also toyed with the idea, Sir William.

I believe IceFalcon (Andre Sinou) is from southern New Jersey, Bridgeton.  Am I correct that he’s still the captain for the U.S.A. Knights?

Rodney, I believe you'd be right, Andre is still the captain for the U.S.A. team.  Good guy, Andre is.  Stellar customer service (Ice Falcon Armory) and decent, albeit off-the-rack wares.

Martyn, toying is about all I've done with it.  I'm not in shape currently and it really shows- wearing just 30lbs of gear wore me out a couple of Saturdays ago.  I'm just now back!  ;)

Well let me know if you want to check this out, Sir William - could be good motivation/goal for both of us :)

It requires a different sort of kit altogether - which means a rather large cash outlay.  It isn't something I've got on my books to handle at this time.  I've been following the pertinent threads on AA- by necessity the armor has to be overbuilt and its pretty expensive (to me).

They definitely overbuild a lot of their kits. They use spring steel and titanium a lot. I was talking to a new friend of mine on facebook who's in the ACL, Brandon Alan Ross. I definitely recommend hitting him up if you need an in. Of course knowing a referee in the ACL is a big in as well (=

I myself am planning on graduating to the ACL once I have all the sufficient kit and am better trained. Right now the SCA is my go-to for my blood fix...but with throes, punches, kicks, and steel weapons going all out I certainly think the ACL is more in line with those who have a thirst for truly bloody conflict. The ex military jock in me wants to join partly for the camaraderie, but also to go to other countries and show 'em who's boss!
