Underground Combat Clubs

I guess this is the right forum, sorry if it's not.

I'm interesting in tracking down a "combat club" or something to that effect.

Lets put it this way, I wouldn't lose any sleep if it was of "questionable legality".

Any tips on finding one in an area where you don't have those type of connections? What to look for? What types of folks to ask, etc?

I just don't know the area or those type of people in the area I'm in.

what i do is....find the biggest bouncer at the bar. be friendly, but also let him know you are willing to take a beating. if he follows through with said beating, shake his hand, buy him a drink, and talk about any fight clubs. if you're lucky he knows of some, and didn't take a beating for nothing

Any serious ideas? But bouncers could likely know...

Portland Oregon. I know it's comical to ask on an MMA forum, but it's worth a try. The larger your search, no matter how remote, the better ones chance of finding something they are seeking.

The trouble is I don't know the area, at all. Or people in that shit.

The reason isn't because "I wunna be a tuff d00d who plays fighter".

It's because I'd like to find free, full contact sparring.

I know most gyms won't let you spar or whatever for quite a while, but I'm in a place where I feel I'd hold up fine against non pros etc. The problem is I don't have a "formal" training resume.

I've thought about checking into my college's wrestling team as a "sparring partner". They get someone to practice on, you practice wrestling. I've heard many colleges do things like that.

I just want something that is real combat.

Oh, if you didn't notice, I don't have money for a gym. haha, I know Team Quest (Henderson, Couture, Lindland, etc) is within 15 minutes of here. but no cash.

Yeah, I dont know of anything out there. If you were closer to Utah then I could give you some info about some places. I know what you mean about the money situation. It sucks having a good gym so close to you and not be able to train there. Im right around the corner from Jeremy Horns gym Elite and soon as I have the time and money I want to go train there.

Exactly. It's seriously a bus ride away. Very hard to find a job here as well. Every store is losing profits, closing, or something along those lines.

I'm lucky I can even crash with my folks. ha. (I'm 18)
