Chad, I think it was "Lonely Dog" on the national geographic pilot show @ 3:48 (good example) doing the striking gesture you mentioned.   Good Form   grin

Another important rule for me is, to use 2+3/4 inch shells only.  In my experience they are the least likely to jam, compared to the longer magnum loads and the aguillo short  shells.
Here is more very usefull info:

12 Gauge Shotshell Ammunition
For personal defense and law enforcement applications, the International Wound Ballistics Association advocates number 1 buckshot as being superior to all other buckshot sizes.

Number 1 buck is the smallest diameter shot that reliably and consistently penetrates more than 12 inches of standard ordnance gelatin when fired at typical shotgun engagement distances. A standard 2 -inch 12 gauge shotshell contains 16 pellets of #1 buck. The total combined cross sectional area of the 16 pellets is 1.13 square inches. Compared to the total combined cross sectional area of the nine pellets in a standard #00 (double-aught) buck shotshell (0.77 square inches), the # 1 buck shotshell has the capacity to produce over 30 percent more potentially effective wound trauma.

In all shotshell loads, number 1 buckshot produces more potentially effective wound trauma than either #00 or #000 buck. In addition, number 1 buck is less likely to over-penetrate and exit an attacker's body.

For home defense applications a standard velocity 2 -inch #1 buck shotshell (16 pellet payload) from Federal, Remington or Winchester is your best choice.  We feel the Federal Classic 2 -inch #1 buck load (F127) is slightly better than the same loads offered by Remington and Winchester. The Federal shotshell uses both a plastic shot cup and granulated plastic shot buffer to minimize post-ignition pellet deformation, whereas the Remington and Winchester loads do not.

Second best choice is Winchester's 2 -inch Magnum #1 buck shotshell, which is loaded with 20 pieces of copper-plated, buffered, hardened lead #1 buckshot. For those of you who are concerned about a tight shot pattern, this shotshell will probably give you the best patterning results in number 1 buck. This load may not be a good choice for those who are recoil sensitive.

Third choice is any standard or reduced recoil 2 -inch #00 lead buckshot load from Winchester, Remington or Federal.

If you choose a reduced recoil load or any load containing hardened Magnum #00 buckshot you increase the risk of over-penetration because these innovations assist in maintaining pellet shape integrity. Round pellets have better sectional density for deeper penetration than deformed pellets.

Fourth choice is any 2 -inch Magnum shotshell that is loaded with hardened, plated and buffered #4 buckshot. The Magnum cartridge has the lowest velocity, and the lower velocity will help to minimize pellet deformation on impact. The hardened buckshot and buffering granules also help to minimize pellet deformation too. These three innovations help to maximize pellet penetration. Number 4 hardened buckshot is a marginal performer. Some of the hardened buckshot will penetrate at least 12 inches deep and some will not.

I like the 12 gauge. Especially for home protection.  It has been my first choice for some 20 + years now. Along with all the reasons mentioned above,  I too like the fact that,  one can control the penetration capabilities with a shotgun by using slugs and buckshot or using smaller shot.  Point being, a buckshot load is much safer than slugs or higher power rifle or hand gun loads. 
Unless you are at point blank range, buckshot loads are much less likely to have enough power to pass through walls and continue to travel at a high velocity.  Not like a high power rifle,  that has the capability of passing through multiple walls at a high velocity.

I'm sure, my neighbor and my neighbors neighbor, would appreciate those differences!  grin

The "Combat Ki" school was one of the clubs featured on the tv show "10 BEST" or something like that.  If you recall, the Dog Brothers were on that show. Not sure about punch to throat demo. I do know the kick to the groin is a parlor trick. If one tightens their buttox muscles before the kick makes contact, it causes your hips to shift forward slightly and when the kick makes contact, the butt muscles take the brunt of the force from the kick. Using this technique, the kick makes no contact to the testicles. If it were a straight front snap kick, that guy would have been rolling on the ground in pain. I'm afraid these guys are just masters at martial art parlor tricks!

WOOF Crafty, It was just search  for "MMA" in general. A friend pointed out to me that,  facebook has a MMA page were you can talk about your favorite fighters, write on their walls  etc. I just found out about it day before yesterday. Not quite sure what all you can do on there.   I looked through the list to see if the dog brothers were listed and could not find anything.  It was quite a coincidence that, two day's later you announced your facebook page. I just mentioned MMA on facebook as an FYI.  grin

117  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Self Defense with Pistols on: January 28, 2009, 01:36:55 PM
I feel accuracy of a weapon still comes into play. Larger round capacity is the way to go.  The police in Mexico learned this years ago. It is a common practice for them to use a shorter 12 gauge shotgun round than normal 2+3/4".  The rounds are manufactured by an ammo company called "AGUILA". 
You can find these rounds for sale on the internet. These rounds make it possible for an eight round capacity shotgun to hold maybe eleven or twelve rounds. These rounds deliver the same velocity with less shot. According to reports I have seen, the stopping power of these loads are is still more than sufficient. One important factor is, in many shotguns, the shorter shells are more difficult to eject and are more likely to jam during ejection in semi auto (not recamended) and pump models. Many models of shotguns need to be modified in order to remedy this problem. There are a few models that work well with the shorter shells right out of the box and require no modification. One of these models is the "Winchester 1300" 12 gauge pump. Back to the subject of pistols, I would rather have a nine shot 22cal. revolver than a five shot 38cal. revolver,  also I feel anything bigger than a 357 is just not accurate enough.  I have shot 45cal. and if you do not have the time to compensate for it's inaccuracy and drop, it is not very reliable. I think one is also better off in some way's, choosing a revolver over a semi auto, just for the reliability factor alone.           
I wonder if a revolver might not slow down the rate of fire, so one would be less likely to rapid fire durring adrenal state.  Interesting subject. cool

I hope the DVD part of the resume works OK. It worked OK in one of my DVD players but not so good in one of my other players. Quality not to good either
(tech problems with burner) although, it has info. labeled on disk that will make it quite easy to pull up one of my fights on "A Gathering Of ThePack" DVD. Also forgot to mention that I have firearm exp.

I know my chances may not be great but, at this time in my life, certain circumstances have arisen that have left me free as a bird to do anything I want, whenever I want. It is a huge turning point in my life and just the thought of doing this is making me feel more alive than I have felt in the past year or more, so thank you for that. Anyway sorry for rambling on. BTW I have been spreading the word in certain circles, about your need for interested fighters to send resumes to you.  Wishing you and yours all the best! 
Sincerely,  Dog Tom

Crafty,  Due to circumstances beyond my control,  I am sorry to say that I will not be able to submit my application within the time frame you have requested.   I am sure the pool of fighters you will have to choose from will be more than sufficient to meet your needs.  That is not to say that I would not make myself available to you in the very near future if  you found you needed someone with my particular skills. (By Default) 
In either case,  I will  be able to submit my resume in two weeks or so as I will be able to gain access to to my equipment in order to produce a disc to go along with my resume.  I would imagine that you may be looking for younger, stronger, more durable and possibly more charismatic individuals than myself.  With that said,  I would just add that if you did see a spot somewhere that I might fit in,  I would consider it an honor and a privilege (as always) to fight in the true spirit of the Dog Brothers tribe.  Good luck to you and all involved in this projet.  Sincerely,   Dog Tom S.

 Hey,Crafty   I see, for this project you are searching for fighters outside of the DB's group . I am sure you will receive many resumes/demos,  as this is an intriguing prospect for any stick fighter looking for a special challenge. I think about the National Geo Gathering and the trials and tribulations I was going through at that time in my life and how the gathering was a place I could gain a sense of strength and courage by immersing myself in a difficult struggle      (ie the gathering) and cultivating that feeling and mindset, to apply in the upcoming life events/struggles I still had to face at that time. I feel I have gained allot through the generosity of your group and will always feel indebted to you for that. Wishing you great luck with this current project and looking forward to seeing the fruit it bares. Sounds very interesting.     Dog Tom S.      PS.  If you ever find the need for a token chux player?

Ya, I know all about that. I don't claim to be a ninja or any other far out stories. I was just a stoner kid looking for something to do that was more constructive and healthy. Martial arts was an easy choice. It seemed interesting and I met allot of cool people (same with DB's) and got in shape. Dux school just happened to be in the neighborhood thats all. Any claims I make, I make sure I can back up with proof. How other people conduct their lives is not my business nor concern, as it should be! I have to admit, It is a bit of a novelty for me that, I was connected with the school for a number of years (81-83) and many times trained under Dux himself.  I am much more proud of the fact that I had my chances to play in the dog brothers arena. Those will be the richest moments to look back on and say to myself. You were one crazy MO-FO! cool

I don't care what your rights are, that was clearly the wrong decision to make given the situation. If I was a cop and I saw someone beating my partner unconscious and I had already been over powered by the assailant, if I was able I would shoot the fool. Maybe the cops were overstepping their bounds. Thats for a court to decide. Eventhough he got away with it, in my opinion this person is as dumb as DIRT .   grin   DT

Hey Tom, Good to hear from you, I understand your point completely and it is a valid one although, the affect I get from cannabis really doesn't impair my ability to make responsible decisions per say. Yes I do keep firearms and cannabis in separate areas in an attempt to abide by the law(as grey as it may be), and yes I do refrain from driving while under the influence which you will be glad to here is also against the law. Intoxication from marijuana in my opinion is not going to impair a responsible persons ability to be responsible but, I do agree it can slow ones reflexes which could impair ones driving ability. As far as firearms are concerned, I don't make the connection. A gun is a tool,  just like a hammer or an axe. What puzzles me is,  given the same scenario with lets say, perscription pain medication such as Vicadin,  I'm sure it would not raise as many eye brows as medical cannabis being in close proximity to a firearm.   It seems there is a double standard here. (for lack of a better term) Personally, I would be much more concerned with mixing alcohol and firearms.     IMHO, Alcohol has a greater potential for causing a responsible person to make irresponsible decisions while under the influence. Marijuana carries with it, a social stigma that will no doubt continue for many years to come.  sad    DT

On the subject of drugs and guns. I wonder how L.A.P.D. would react to medical marijuana and fire arms found in same vehicle. I can not seem to get a definitive answer from law enforcement or medical marijuana providers. Normally it would be a felony to possess both guns and pot in same vehicle.  There is still a negative stigma when it comes to possession of booth said items and I find myself keeping the two separated just in case. Then theres the problem of other law enforcement agencies i.e. federal law enforcement and how they would react to same scenario.  Funny thing is, If we were discussing more common perscription medication, then it would not even be an issue. It seems that there is still allot of uncharted territory when it comes to medical marijuana laws and how they are enforced.  In the meantime, I would say, Be Carefull and use discretion because, the last thing you want is a room without a view,  complaments of the U.S. Correctional dept...   shocked      DT

Out of all the fighters I have seen,  I think Fedor Emelianenko(spelling?) was the most interesting fighter to watch.  First off, one wouldn't think he was as tuff as he is at first glance. I have not followed the MMA game for some time now but, when it comes to transitioning from one technique to another, I feel Fedor is a master. He is one of my favorite fighters of all time. cool      DT
