Save the Date

Gene Fabrikant is organizing a Paul Rosner memorial event called the "Festival of Martial Arts", which will take place on February 28th at Atlantic Oceana in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn.  Rosner was the driving force behind the United States Kickboxing Association and a key player in the growth of amateur MMA; he passed away earlier this year and he is still dearly missed.  The specifics of what will transpire at the event are a bit unclear, although based on the flyer it looks like there should be kickboxing, Muay Thai and grappling.
