Fubar Fight Night!

I want to start a night of watching fights at Fubar, a club near my work in Oyafuko, Tenjin, Fukuoka.

This is a pre-emptive post for the people I am going to direct to this website soon.

With the Fubar Fight Night, in association with Jody who manages Fubar in Oyafuko, I hope to get a bunch of people together, regularly, to watch martial arts stuff on the big projector in his bar.

We’ve got all kinds of things planned, starting with livening up those dull weekdays and Sunday nights with live Pride FC events from Sky PerfecTV! And on off days, I’ll be collecting classic events from the archives… The best that Pride and UFC have to offer.

Some days, who knows, we might put on a BJJ documentary, a best-of highlight reel night, or even have open mat and training sessions in the bar.

Join in the fun at Fubar Fight Night.

If you want to know about it, send me an email at monkeypalm(AT mark-stupid spammers)hotmail.com

  1. I haven’t seen a no-holds-barred fight in years. How is this Pride thing, similar to UFC? I understand there are weight classes now and more restrictions in these events than there used to be, which is probably just as well.

  2. Hi John.

    NHB is a bit of a misnomer really… it’s the sport of mixed martial arts now. Pride is similar to the UFC, with similar weight classes. The major rule differences are that you cannot elbow the face in Pride, but you may kick a downed opponent.

    It’s a sport, but that doesn’t mean these guys can’t take care of themselves!

    It’s great fun to watch, and I hope to get a group together where I live. The competitors are not barbarians, and the level of sportsmanship they show towards each other (shaking hands and hugging after the fight) is quite inspiring.
