What fighters need to know
- Shin guards / mouth guard / sports cup
- Boxing or MMA gloves / hand wraps
- Fencing masks (for knife sparring, stick or sword matches)
Light Intensity: light fights involve “pulling” your strikes so that your partner does not get hurt.
Medium Intensity: these fights involve real contact striking, but following up on a stunned opponent is not done. It is likely that minor injuries such as bumps or bruises will occur.
Full Contact: this level is decided by submission, TKO or knockout and involves a high degree of risk for the participants. These fights do not occur without qualified first aid personnel on staff.
If you do plan to come out on your own, please ensure to have your “in case of emergency” contact information available for the event organizers.
If this is your first Throwdown, you will be fighting at a light intensity against an TDG veteran for your first match. They will have the experience to keep the fight safer for both of you should you make beginner mistakes that put you both at risk.
There is a cover charge of $10.00 that applies to all fighters and spectators and everyone must be willing to sign a waiver.
Member fighters have earned the right to promote their own seminars to this group free of charge. If you are not yet part of this awesome community, we can help you get visibility to your event. A nominal fee will apply.
Promotion requests for members and non-members can be sent to andi@ zirgeracademy. com. Please ensure to send the request a minimum of 6 weeks prior to the event date to ensure we have enough time to gather the information and post to the group.
