I really like what this lady has to show as well:

102  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Healing Aspect of DBMA on: December 17, 2008, 09:26:07 PM
3:30 of which clip?
103  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Healing Aspect of DBMA on: December 16, 2008, 09:46:31 PM
Some good alignment/stretches for the shoulders:

What a fight.  Manny ate him up all night with the false lead jab.  Kept to the outside and Oscar didn't know what to do.

Thank You!

Guro,

So I can get it straight in my head please let me know if I am following correctly:

Tribe - (insert name here) Dog

Pack - (insert name here) Dog, C-Dog's & Dogs

DBMAA Members - all of the above plus people who are on this forum.

Is this correct?
107  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: November 28, 2008, 08:59:06 AM
LOL!

Switching gears, one of our fighters, Paul Bradley continued his streak of being undefeated by beating Dante Rivera last weekend in a title match for Ring of Combat:



Paul was on the Ultimate Fighter, a wrestling stand out (All American) and is now starting to showcase his skills on his feet.

108  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Hatton vs. Mayweather on: November 28, 2008, 08:55:37 AM

Some fighters are great IN SPITE of what they do, not because of it.


That's true, but this wasn't the case.

Note that Hatton who ridiculed Mayweather's training, swallowed his pride enough to hire Mayweather senior as his trainer.
He won his recent fight by totally dominating his opponent. Better body positioning, better reactions inside. He even stated how some of his old habits were still exposing him to punches.

Mayweather senior hasn't coached or cornered Jr. for a decent number of years.  From what I gather father and son have never been further apart.

I'm grateful for being able to spend time with friends and family yesterday!
110  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: What would you like to see from DBMA? on: November 23, 2008, 11:55:28 AM
I'll quadruple that!  I'm all about seeing documentary style videos on how people prep, how they train, etc.
111  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Daily Expression of Gratitude on: November 23, 2008, 11:53:23 AM
I'm happy to be spending the next few days with my Dad at our hunting camp!  I am looking forward to getting out of cell phone range!
112  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: November 23, 2008, 11:52:39 AM
There is a fine line between fighting and fornacating Guro.  cheesy  Add in the emotions of winning a big fight and watch out!
113  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Boxing Thread on: November 22, 2008, 09:31:31 PM
Some wonderful examples of Kali Tudo's Triggonomics tonight by Kirkland on HBO right now.  Kirkland is also doing an awesome job using angles and head movement. 

I'm looking forward to Hatton!

I'm with Dana on that:


Start watching at 2:50
119  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Why did Elite XC Fail? on: October 26, 2008, 11:43:35 AM
I think the last EliteXC card was better than the recent UFC card.  However, I think fixing fights was the beginning of the end for ProElite.
120  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: October 26, 2008, 10:17:49 AM
Impressive fight from Sherk last night!  It received fight of the night and rightly so.  Bummer about Anderson & Cote.  I hate seeing people get injured and unable to continue.  On a more positive note I think I saw just about every variation in Silva's footwork last night, how cool!  His footwork is so impressive and I'm glad that we are finally seeing fighters that can switch leads at will in a technical way.  I also give props to Cote for being able to keep up with Anderson and have the eye to see what Silva was doing with his footwork.  Mark D. had some great cornering advice as well.  Amongst many other things he mentioned that when Anderson stops moving he is timing Cote and I believe this to be true.
121  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: October 25, 2008, 01:53:43 PM
This will be his second fight without the additional help.  To change gears it was great to see Sled Dog in "Countdown to UFC" on Spike talking about Cote.  I am always in BTT Canada's corner but I REALLY like Silva for this fight.
122  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: October 25, 2008, 10:30:48 AM
He lost to BJ but I don't think that was because of the lack of vitamins.  IMHO superior reach and take down defense is what won that fight for BJ.
123  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: October 23, 2008, 10:39:22 PM
Griffin has a pretty impressive record with wins over Urijah Faber, Duane Ludwig, Clayton Guida and a number of others.  His only loss is to Frank Edgar which went all three rounds and in my book, went down as one of the best and most technical fights at 155.  He's no slouch but I'm fairly confident that Sherk is going to do very well against him.
124  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: October 23, 2008, 01:44:35 PM
Big weekend for UFC.  I'll be excited to see Anderson put on another display.  Sean Sherk is also fighting Tyson Griffin which I am looking forward to!  We are having Sean in State College in December so we are all hyped about seeing him fight!
125  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Daily Expression of Gratitude on: October 19, 2008, 09:20:42 PM
I took pleasure in cornering one of our up and coming Muay Thai Boxers this weekend.  He walked away with the win and no injuries!
126  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Something big is brewing on: October 19, 2008, 01:51:52 AM
Looks great Crafty,

Awesome job Ron!
127  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: The Dog Brothers Tribe on: October 16, 2008, 11:02:34 AM
Mega props to him for living off the grid.  While I don't think I could do it full time, it's my dream to get out and do something similar.  I kinda want to do it on my own though.
128  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: October 15, 2008, 12:31:03 PM
I'm wondering if Kimbo took a dive?

I never though he was really on top of anything to dive off of.
129  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Daily Expression of Gratitude on: October 15, 2008, 12:30:35 PM
I happy to know that this Sunday-Tuesday I'll be fly fishing with my Father and Grandfather in upstate PA.  I can't wait to disconnect and spend some time with the family.
130  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Daily Expression of Gratitude on: October 11, 2008, 01:36:00 AM
I'm grateful for a renewed interest in the martial arts and getting over the hump of feeling so burnt out!
131  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: The Dog Brothers Tribe on: October 09, 2008, 11:47:25 PM
I updated the “Pack” list… http://www.dogbrothers.ch/pages/en/dog-brothers/the-pack.php?lang=EN  ... wow 155 dogs & cats.

156, "Dog" Steve Gruhn is missing.  Gotta give love to my old man.

Most of State College, PA - Dog Brothers will be in attendance with potentially a few new fighters!
133  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: April 2009 US Gathering on: October 06, 2008, 10:18:22 AM
Is the plan to replicate the anniversary gathering we had last year on an annual basis?  Three days, DB Corral, etc?
134  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: October 05, 2008, 04:40:50 PM
IMHO AA almost lost last night.  His BJJ is non-existant.  Barnett and Fedor would run through AA.  Also, how about freaking Nelson and Arlovski getting stood back up when Nelson was in side control with a submission!  WTF!!!

On the topic of Kimbo, I'm pretty sure that fight was supposed to be fixed.  A fairly important person for this event was trying to get the ref to jump in and call Seth for hitting Kimbo in the back of the head:



He says "he's hitting him in the back of the head" then points to the back of his head. . . . interesting?!

135  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: October 05, 2008, 10:43:28 AM
Here is the first one:

Here is one of my boxers using the matrix in his last fight from August:

138  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Kali Tudo Working Examples on: October 04, 2008, 02:53:28 PM
Last night was a great night for sparring.  We had some out of town guys come in and spar who had a lot of experience, almost all of the fighters that sparred my guys were pro, a few had fought in the UFC, Elite XC and a few other big name shows.  In any event, the guy that my Thaiboxer went against was 18-2 as a pro I believe.  My Thaiboxer has learned the KT matrix inside and out and does an excellent job of playing it while sparring.  I've always been extremely against the flat footed "Tim Silvia" approach to stand up and seeing my guys successful brings a smile to my face.  Ajarn Chai gave me the cruel idea to tape push pins "tacks" to the heels of the feet to make people stay on their toes.  I have yet to try it but the concept states how important it is to Chai so I myself make sure my students stay "tall" on the balls of the feet.  I think this lends very well to the footwork matrix that Crafty has shared with us. "What stands still, grows roots, gets chopped down."

I was first introduced to this matrix in late '03 / early '04 by Crafty and immediately saw the relevance in it.  I went back to the gym to spar all the guys and kept it quiet for some time while I had immense success using it.  It amazed me of how "top secret" this material actually was.  Even many top fighters NOW are not using this structure.  Those who are have great success.  After a while I decided to start sharing the KT matrix with my guys and they have more than ran with the material.  This was way before the DVD even came out so I had many people raising an eyebrow when I shared it with them.  My one boxer who I used to "one up" now beats me at my own game!  In any event, the Thaiboxer you watched Jon is going to be fighting on the 18th and we plan on using this structure.  I'll make sure to post the video.

Woof!

141  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: October 02, 2008, 02:26:58 PM
Shamrock by leg lock! LOL =)I just haven't seen an impressive Ken in any of his last fights.  I think this is going to be a replay of Kimbo/Tank.
142  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Cooties in Training on: October 01, 2008, 12:18:11 AM
Make sure to keep the mats clean, and wash your clothes.  Most importantly, if someone has something (ringworm or anything else) KEEP THEM OFF THE MAT.  I don't know how many times I've seen guys tape over ringworm and want to continue to train.  Nobody likes to miss out on training, but you need to make sure you don't contaminate your whole gym.

Personally, I scrub my body with anti-fungal shampoo after I train.  Maybe I'm just paranoid.

Damn dude, people tape over ringworm and just keep going? WTF is wrong with them? Has someone talked some sense into these people?

We have the stinky guys in our gym. I think it happens everywhere. I wonder sometimes how you can be lazy enough to skip washing your gear, but have the motivation to come and train regularly? I guess it is one of lifes little mysteries?

I actively call out our stinky dudes for the health of the gym.  I tell them to go take a shower and wash their clothes/gear before I work with them.  I won't spar or roll with anyone that stinks.  I might be a pansy to some, but then again, I don't have any skin diseases.

I'm grateful for unlimited burritos at Mad Mex.  My record is five and I'm shooting for six next week!  Kobayashi here I come!
144  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Street Weapons on: September 27, 2008, 09:15:24 PM
Not sure if you were there Jon but about a month ago I brought in some old t-shirts to try out collar chokes in and neither t-shirt ripped but the chokes were pretty easy to get.  I would assume coats would be even easier to choke with and harder to rip.  I'm looking forward to pulling mine out btw, bring on the cold!
145  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: September 27, 2008, 09:11:24 PM
I don't mean to speculate or start rumors but I suspect some vitamins have come into Gina's workout regimen in the past few years.
146  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Daily Expression of Gratitude on: September 27, 2008, 12:31:49 AM
I'm grateful for heat and three cords of fire wood as we enter the cold months here in the north.

Just put one up myself.  I actually didn't know this was possible otherwise I would have done it along time ago!

Looks like it.  I can almost recite Crafty's speech at the beginning of many of the videos.  Why can't people just respect this.
