Rough Crowd August: Grappling for Kinky People (feat. DoNotGoGently)

Rough Crowd Date: Sunday, August 7, 2016


This month we have a special guest speaker, DoNotGoGently, who will be presenting Grappling for Kinky People.
You wanna wrassle? Have an urge to control another’s body using nothing but your own? DNGG shows you some of the basics of wrestling and grappling. We’ll start with common vocabulary and traditional dominance positioning, then up the ante by exploring ways to “supercharge” your grappling by including MMA style strikes, pressure points, and joint locks. You don’t have to get in the ring, but it’s much more fun than sitting on the sidelines!

It’s Summertime! Come Have A Burrito!
When the weather is nice, we have a tradition at Rough Crowd: everyone is invited to join us for post-Rough Crowd eats. Generally, it’s at a little Mexican grille that we love just down the street, where their food is delicious, the margaritas are questionable, the prices are decent, and there’s an outdoor tented seating area where we can take over a bunch of tables and chill.

The weather should be pretty good for this weekend so if you’re interested, plan on joining us afterwards for some food and relaxation. It’s not a full-on munch, but it’s a great re-entry after class.


Who Is Rough Crowd For?
Bringing your own play partner is always awesome, but not required; while couples and groupings are always encouraged to come together (hey, isn’t that always nice?), it’s not a requirement to have a partner to come to Rough Crowd.

All genders, ages, experience levels, races, shoe sizes, sexual orientations and preferences, religions, pet preferences, fitness levels, tax brackets, partnership status, poly, D/s, M/s, height, eye color, and pizza topping choices are welcome (even all veggie pizza, if that’s your thing; your pizza is not my pizza, and that’s OK).

If you’re into rough body play, or if you think this sounds interesting, then yes, it *is* for you. Come to Rough Crowd for overview, instruction, and practice time. Safety and technique will be first, and then ideas and practice time. No experience necessary; you’ll have some by the time you leave.
