The First Rule of Fight Club is: You do NOT talk about fight club!

here’s the information on the throw-down.
Ok. We’re going to go on Sunday, 2/1, leaving @ around 8 am. If we have four or more people, I’ll rent get car for us.

The health club lets me in at 3pm and we can go till 5pm for sure. We might be able to go as late as 6pm if no one needs the room after 5.

The health club is on the first floor of the Shaw Jewish Community Center. The address is:

750 White Pond Dr
Akron, Oh

ping here if you can make it

I’ll probably need to leave before 9 PM tonight, but it’ll be an intense class.

Also, I’m thinking about having a class devoted to street fighting: including tactics, strategy, make-shift weapons, psychological components, and exit routes. A seminar of sorts, if you will.

Who’s interested?


This is going to be a difficult conversation, but I want to be frank about some concerns.

I’d really like to start seeing about at least 8 people show up for practice on a regular basis, and I’d like to make sure that the club is always open on designated nights. I don’t really mind footing the bill, so long as I feel that people are will to use the facilities. To me, that’s a worthwhile sacrifice. But paying for the space to sit empty, for to be used by one or two people at a time: I’m not comfortable with that.

If we don’t get to that level of activity within a month or two, I’m going to have to withdraw my support.  What does this mean? Frankly, it means that you need to start showing up, recruiting new members, find alternative sources of funding, or seeing the club dissolve.  I firmly believe that every single person who’s active in the club is a leader, and I think you can all find ways to make this successful, if it’s a priority for you.  The question is, is club a priority for you?
