    Default Combat Sports Open Trials

    I took a big group to the 1st leg last year but found it a bit of a rip off tbh.
    It costs 15 plus 10 insurance, the mma league is 15 including insurance.
    There was about 20 of us including people watching and he still made me pay 10.
    I`d made them 280ish so I thought it was a bit cheeky.
    The dvd of the event costs 12 but the mma league are sending a copy of the event to the competitors for FREE.
    With the added bonus of spectators only being charged 5 and it being 1 hour up the road, I`ve sacked it lol.
    My guy Mark Adams won the lightweight division last year and they didn`t even bother to put a write up on their own site,that to me shows how bothered there are about the event.

    I believe it's 20 this year. Bit pricey, but still good experience and a good day out. Hopefully we'll get a few people up. I would have thought, seeing as you guys gave them so much business they'd at least have offered you some kind of discount.

    I think the second one. While it might be cheap to make, it's not particularly cheap to buy. When I first started MMA I had some of their Viper gloves. I used them twice before they began to fall apart

    Me and 2 others picked up a pair of rogue`s at the same time and within a week they`d all ripped.
    I think it was us that was ripped lol.

    yep me too. I made a highlight reel from the 3rd leg last year myself because I knew that the dvd would never emerge. Why do they bother filming it?

    Apart from that though I always found their events to be well organised and fun, and Dale always struck me as being professional, although I know that a lot of people on this forum have experiences from way back when.
