The next Grind will be TBA.
These sessions are meant to be scheduled around bigger events so the date is subject to change.
1.) No going upstairs
2.) Smoking of any kind will be done on the back deck.
3.) Brake it = Bought it
4.) If you want any food/drinks, feel free to bring them.
5.) I have close neighbors, so it can’t TOO hype.
These are grind sessions dedicated to leveling up quickly. As these fight nights are few and far between we need to be as productive as possible. We’re still gonna have a very good time, but if that’s all you’re interested in then you will not like my conditions. If you want to have a good time and see dramatic improvements in your game, please come down.
1.) Set ups are now going to be limited to 2. My t.v. for rotation of casual sets and 1 extra set up strictly for training mode. This means a longer line for the casual rotation. Losses will be more frustrating because you will have to wait a while to play again. If you don’t play your best, you won’t be on the set up for long.
2.) On the casual rotation, you can pick any character (preferably your main) for the first rotation. If you happen to cycle through everyone in the rotation and it starts over, you must switch to another character (unless your opponent requests to see your main again). I encourage everyone to play more than just 1 main and this will help with that. This should also keep the rotation moving smoothly.
3.) Everyone must get on the Training Mode set up at least twice. Once to train, and once to be a training dummy. The Training Mode set up will stay on training mode. Everyone has things they need to work on that can’t be practiced alone in training mode and this is the solution. Even if you don’t have any specific ideas of things to drill, just turn off the meter and practice corner pressure, footsies, or option selects.
4.) No one at these sessions is “daddy” or “sensei”. None of us have mastered these games and thus no one is going to be talking down to anyone. There will be a mutual respect amongst all of us and helpful, creative, suggestions are encouraged.
Respect each other, respect the venue, and respect the grind.
I’m extremely dedicated to training and leveling up. If these conditions don’t suit you, I’m definitely not going to 86 you but you won’t have much fun here. So if you’re near Tacoma and can’t make it to the great Dojos up north, this is a good alternative for leveling up. PM me your number for directions.
Happy beasting folks. :nunchuck:
P.S. - Kudos to any other hosts that have adopted these attendance conditions for their own level up sessions. They will make for stronger players.
