    Hey guys!

    Just wondering if there is going to be a Pacific Island Showdown in 2009.
    Looking forward to the possibility and if there is might as well start promoting it now right? I hope some schools from the mainland participate too.

    Maybe I'd join if they have a full-contact, live-stick event... If it's smak- sticks, I would join if they won't let me require any armor...

    Idk, well see, it depends... But I'll go and watch definitely... If it costs the same to compete, I'd rather compete...

    I might sign up for the daga competitions... But I don't like the rules about no strikes to the neck and no takedowns... Where's the fun in that? lol

    Don't complain and enter the tourney. No takedowns, no neck shots or what ever you like is not the object of the tourney but to enjoy, test your skill and most of all make new friends. I enter tourney to network and test my skills. I enjoy entering tourney because of that. I meet and stayed in contact with friends I met over the tourney. So like what NIKE say "Just Do It".

    We'll see what happens... Right now I'm just thinking of doing the Carenza event... I might end up fighting maybe, depends... It's always a game time decision, as well as if I'm even going there or not... My schedule always changes so we'll see on the 15th...

    Are you joining?
