Their indoor fighter practices concurrent with their business meetings, on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays, will continue. They are at Walnut Gardens Community of Christ, 19201 E RD Mize Road, Independence, MO. Tomorrow is the 2nd Thursday, so there will be a meeting/fighter practice at that location tomorrow.
