San Diego Fires Scorch My Plans for Open Mat

by Caleb on October 22, 2007

WTF? After only getting in to train last week one time (I know – nightmare), I grabbed my gi and headed out the door for open mat this evening from 6 to 8 pm only to find a note on the door stating that the academy was closed due to poor air quality conditions from the San Diego fires.

I see that Gracie Barra America up north in Lake Forest, California in Orange County was closed this evening as well.

Obviously losing a night of open mat is a bummer but it’s nothing compared to losing my home. I feel terrible for the folks out there who have lost property or been injured.
