I have experianced a few real knife fights in my time and I can tell you things happen deathly quick. One time we were playing pool and a fight broke out right next to me. I saw the whole thing or at least I thought I did, except for the goose down (jacket) feathers floating around. It did not take long to figure out there was a knife involved. I never did see the knife but I saw the bloody mess it left behind. Another knife fight I wittnessed, the guy fended off the knife wielding man with a stick he found on the ground. I was involved in a fight were a knife was involved back in junior high school. Ah yes those were the good old days when kids from "Compton" were bussed in to the San Fernando valley with all us white boys. That was my first incounter with crips and bloods. I must say it was educational. If I could, I would shoot the stupid f**k that came up with that briliant idea.   Tom

It is a good idea to wear some kind of a tough glove when fighting against an opponent wearing a fencing mask. A tough glove,batting gloves, ski gloves and the like do not offer much if any protection against sticks impact, but it will protect your hand from being cheese grated by the fencing mask.  JMHO    Tom

Correction: The stun gun I recomended is 500,000 volts not 5,000 as previously stated.

Woof, ryungruhn.  It sounds like a cattle prod works well and is not as severe as some stun guns but still very effective.  I was thinking the lower voltage of a cattle prod may not be as effective through some clothing were as most stun guns claim to work through most clothing. I guess sparring with less or thinner clothing would remedy that possible problem. Q,  What voltage is your cattle prod. The stun gun I recomended delivers  5000, volts. P.S. Always wear eye protection.    Tom

Are you checking out photo 137 (of 174)  in the enlarged version ?
On the unenlarged version, I can't see the spatter, either.  Though,
the spatter is definitely there.  I have the original photos, so it's
easier for me to identify the spatter, which is definitely not marks on the
rolling door wall behind the competitors.  

Cool !

 My monitor has not been very clear lately. I guess it is time to get a new one. After looking at other photos and comparing the same area on the door (back ground) I see and am convinced that indeed this must be blood splatter. I did not doubt you, I just had a hard time seeing it clearly on my soon to be replaced monitor. P.S. Thanks for the assist Pretty Kitty.   Tom

I forgot to mention that this partcular stungun is charged an entire 5'' inches from the tip down toward the base so it is excelent for using slashing as well as thrusting techniques. I would also mention that a stun gun has different effects on the human body depending on the duration of contact. Quick contact will  not produce an actual KNOCK OUT in fact if you are hit it will make you very aware of that fact from the shock and possible temporary disorientation. If you want to use slashing techniques with this stun gun then padding the top  5''inches is not an option.
258  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / stun guns on: July 14, 2005, 12:58:30 PM
Hey ryangruhn,  First of all the best thing to do is pad the stungun with  to 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick dence foam padding wraped with black electrical tape. This will help to protect it from impact damage. For a picture of a suitable stun gun go to "GOOGLE- IMAGES" and type in the  words          "stun guns"  If you do not use the correct spaceing and lower case letters you will not end up on the correct page. Once you get there check out the stungun on the second row down and the third picture from the right. This picture shows a variety of stun guns marked A,B,C,and"D". Stungun  marked "D" is the one that I suggest using. It is a wand type device that most resembles the length and shape of a medium to large size knife. With a little more searching you can find smaller or larger models to suite your needs. I hope this helps.   TOM

TBONE,   It has been a while since I have fought at a "DB" gathering but basicly (back then) knife fighting was used as a warm up exercise before a day of stickfighting, and although it  does attract some serious knife fighters the main focus was on stick, staff and other alike weapons. As to why we don't see much grappling with the knife probably is the nature of the weapon.(if you treat it with the respect it deserves). It would be easy to crash in and grapple with practice weapons but against a real knife is a different story. I like to get in and deliver my shot and get out as quick as possible without getting hit myself and would only grapple when absolutely necessary or if a great opportunity to dissarm presented itself. In a real knife fight I would utilize my inviorment. Chairs bricks sticks and the like can turn the tables of a knifefight or any fight for that matter.  As far as your question about scoring at a "DB" gathering, I don't think it is going to happen anytime in the near future. Read the rules(for lack of a better term) Soyoc Kali seems to be the prefered knife system among many of the dogbrothers but not the rule as there are none except "Be friends at the end of the day. I hope this answers some of your questions. P.S. I am not the most qualified person to answer these questions but took it upon myself to do so just in case no one else does. I do believe this info. to be accurate. ALSO: I work with a group that utilizes STUN GUN technology to add a little more consiquence to knife sparring. The long handle ones that resemble a short stick work best.  Take care,  Tom

I am not seeing the blood or spatter in the photos mentioned. I only see shadows and grainy areas of photos. Original prints are much clearer I'm shure. Is it possible you are seeing the chips in the paint on the bay door back dropping the photo. By the way, I did some research and found that the only blood testing done in profesional sports is done on a voluntary basis except for pro boxing and even then it is only" REQUIRED" in the state of nevada. Other states do not require testing. Even after the stunning news of Magic Johnson's aquiring AIDS he was still alowed to play as you may remember. The rules have changed in pro basketball since then. Now if a player is found to have AIDS he is not alowed to play. Still after all that, testing in pro basketball is done on a voluntary basis and is not required.  Just some food for thought.   Tom stillman

Crafty,   I would have to agree. I also believe this to be a low risk group and the presence of the mask would tend to reduce blood spatter. I also have much faith in ring masters (you and others) abilities to sence danger in the ring and being a good safety net for the fighters. Also: Poor choice of words on my part. I think the word sparring does not qualify in describing this type of "FIGHTING". I stand corrected.  Sincerely your friend and follower.   Tom Stillman
262  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Blood on: July 12, 2005, 04:51:17 PM
After seeing pictures of the bloody nature of this type of sparring (And personal experiance) maybe blood testing should be required for fighters.  Maybe I'm just being paranoid.  Iduno.

Best to use a longer and more round shaped type of stun gun rather than the short square type. Search Google Images for "Stun Gun" to see different types. ALSO: I suggest padding the stun gun with a 1/16 to 1/8 inch thick mini cell foam padding wraped with black electricle tape to help protect the device from heavy impact.
265  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / new knife sparring game on: May 06, 2005, 01:37:37 PM
I finaly found the answer to keeping it real when knife sparring. "STUN GUNS". They cause temporary paralisis but are otherwise harmless to a generally healthy person. I am associated with a group that uses this technique and it works well. Just think. Knife sparring with a knock out punch. Im sure this will be intriguing to many Knife Fighters and Dogs alike.  P.S.  Wear goggles and don't wear thick clothing.     Tom

Crafty, I was wondering if all videos will be available on DVD in the future and also is there a "greatest hits" still in the works.

So !
register  and show! drag all my sh*t in from the car. At 11 we get a breif history.general rules . Im assuming then they open the floor?? are there any exhibition or preplanned fights to start the day.

Usualy there are no demomstrations or things of that nature. However they do start the day with a round of knife sparring. This is mainly used as a warm up exercise to help loosen up for a day of stickfighting. Hope this helps answer your question.
269  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Gathering at the park on: April 09, 2005, 05:09:00 AM
Does anyone know if there is a group of fighters that still meet at the park(south park) were the gatherings use to take place. I heard that they meet on the same dates as previous gatherings at the park. As I recall that would be the first weekend in May and the third weekend of September. 411 please.
