Ladies and gents, this year Debase Camp is putting together an event known as the Black Rock City Combat Club.
We have two goals...
1) To provide the martial artists of Burning Man a place to train, share/compare technique, and hang out.
2) To increase awareness of martial arts at Burning Man and give the community an opportunity to experience modern martial arts first hand.
If you want more info about what we'll be offering, classes and scheduling, please check out http://brc.cc.
We are desperately in need of gymnastics/martial arts/wrestling mats. Old, torn, new, whatever - we'll take it. Our classes will be held under a shade structure that is about 2000 square feet - so far we have only 50 square feet of mat. Not so good. We don't need to mat the entire area, but we're shooting for at least 200 square feet - for a reasonably sized class.
We're also looking for old gloves and kicking shields if anyone has some just lying around.
Enough panhandling - if you're interested in martial arts or are a martial artist yourself and would like to collaborate with us or just want to participate, let us know! It is great to hear from like minded people.
See you on the playa (it's getting close!!!!)
