The Filipino Martial Arts Academy (FMAA), the Doce Pares Multi-Style System West Coast headquarters will be hosting their “8th River City Rumble” tournament this coming August 30th (Saturday) at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Sacramento.
The River City Rumble is one of the most fun and family oriented tournaments this side of the West Coast!
The events available to compete in will be traditional and modern forms competition, stick and single-stick/double-stick continuous sparring and knife/stick point-system sparring.
It’s a good opportunity to test out skills you’ve learned so far, know what works and what doesn’t, all within a contained friendly atmosphere. You’ll also get to meet other Eskrima enthusiasts and represent Los Angeles Doce Pares!
Cost wise, the first event you’ll join will be $45 and it will be $15 for each additional event thereafter. You can also join in on the bill split we’ll be organizing for the lodging, vehicle rental and gas expenses. On average, you’d spend just about $200* for one event with hotel, rental and gas all in!
