I got pretty good at hitting the tire over the past year however I was promptly reminded how much different splitting wood is.  When you get half way through a log it no longer makes sense to pull the ax back out.  Instead, logic tells me to lift not only the ax but the ax with the log still attached and then try to split it . . . .  rolleyes  Not sure it's the best way but definitely makes for a very interesting workout when you have no clue how many times you're actually going to swing the ax.

Here is my additional training to get ready for the Gathering next month:





An entire triaxle of firewood to cut, split and stack by the time I leave.  I estimate it to be around 8 cords.

Personally I think doing a "camp" DVD would be awesome!  Everyone else is doing it and I know that myself and others buy every "camp" DVD set that comes out!  cool  Dog Brothers Martial Arts Camp 2009 . . . has a good ring!

Any news on the pilot.  I'm excited to see some of the angles they got with that huge boom arm for the camera!  cool

Ron Balicki shared that with me back around '96-97.  It wouldn't surprise me if he got it from Erik Paulsen.

Guro,

"that" being the superman punch?

I remember seeing it as early as '96 in a Ohio "NHB" show by a guy with full Thai wear on; shorts, arm bands, etc.  grin  Also, interestingly enough Ajarn Chai calls it "Mat Gatun" which means "pushing fist."

Anyone have any thoughts on Kyle Maynard fighting?  One side of me says, "if he wants to do it."  While the other side of me says that it's wrong on many levels.

YES!

Our stand up crew has always called this exact footwork & punch the "Steve Austin" because it looks like a close line.  I love how he starts off with a quick false lead fake before he hits it.

Cyborg, C-Sleazy, Tennessee, Boo, Pappy, C-Lefty, awesome fights, thanks for pushing me so much.  Dog Randall thanks for being my team mate in the two on two fight!  Yet another fun weekend with my brothers and I'll look forward to next time.

In dog time , , , 10 or 11 cheesy

Remember, Saturday is the day the TV folks will be here.


Then I'll be doing my hair and makeup until at least 12.  grin

Guro,

Mike and I arrive Friday.  We'll be down for any festivities you guys have planned.

Very nice.  Some smooth lead changes in there amongst many good things.


Which you sir have been a huge influence of.
71  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: VIDEO CLIPS OF INTEREST on: March 30, 2009, 11:10:27 PM
My fighters have been competing nonstop over the past year and this past weekend I had two of my Muay Thai fighters fight Full Muay Thai (no pads, elbows, knees, etc. all legal).  To say the least, I'm very proud of them . . .

Looking forward to it. How is everyone feeling?

Oh, you know. Just another weekend in the corral.

More character development via being beaten with sticks by much taller men (which is pretty much everyone for me).

More post-fight interviews with horse sh&% in your teeth.

Basically, I wouldn't miss it for the world.  grin


Guide Dog,

I've made the executive decision and decided that we are not going to fight this time.  Why you ask?  You've turned out to be one of the nicest people I've ever met and instead of fighting I just want to give you big uncomfortably long hugs through out the weekend.  Be ready because they're coming out of left field and I won't let go until I feel I've received the love.  I hope you're okay with this!  grin

It was a "different" venue, but then again we were fighting in horse crap a few months before.
 
cheesy ...You know what, I LOVE the Powerhouse Gym.

 

My mask and gloves are still stained,  . . . poop color.  I also remember going back to the hotel one night, going into my office, wiping my rear end and getting more horse poo than my own.  Good times.

If Jardine wins I'll have to believe the "Just showing up is half the battle" saying to its fullest.  I don't think I've ever seen a sloopier light heavyweight. . . ever.
78  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Cooties in Training on: February 08, 2009, 06:37:46 AM
I just woke up from almost 14 straight hours of sleep.  What ever I have I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.  Likely just the flu I was on the brink of tears from a migraine that was coming on.  Luckily I was able to catch it in time and the pain has subsided.  Working with the public has it's benifits but catching all of the gross viruses out there is definitely one of the immense downfalls.

So maybe the teacher has to avoid instilling a certain mindset in the student until there is trust in that relationship.


Well put.

81  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Secrecy vs. Knowledge wants to be free on: February 06, 2009, 03:13:06 PM
I think one issue as well is regardless of where the material is presented if it's available it could get into the wrong hands.  Regardless of if someone is selling DVD's or posting on youtube, if it's public, it's public. 

The other thing I thought of is the concept that I remember Guro Inosanto stating which was when we were doing knife defense at a seminar.  He said:

"What am I teaching you right now?"

Someone replied "how to defend against a knife."

He said "Wrong, I'm teaching you how to use a knife offensively."

This stuck with me, and many other instructors have said the same thing.  Correct me if I'm wrong but how I took it was:

If you are learning defense you are also thinking about how to beat the defensive techniques and in a sense, be offensive.  Whether or not this is actually the case I have yet to make up my mind but I did think it was an interesting point.  So with that said, if this is true even defensive knife techniques could be used by the "bad guys."

Is there going to be a promo video to go along with the release?
85  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Ripley's believe it or not. on: January 30, 2009, 09:25:01 PM
I've heard things as crazy as "they can pull their testicles up into their body right before impact."

My opinion; they either don't have any balls or can deal with the pain.  There have been plenty of sick clips online of S&M where a guy is getting off on women kicking them in the nuts, stepping on their balls with heels, etc.  I think we should be asking them what's up as I believe they would give us a clearer view of what is actually going on than the Combat Ki guys. 
86  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Ripley's believe it or not. on: January 30, 2009, 03:39:31 PM
I want to see them take a Cross-Hook combo to the chin.

Fedor vs Arlvoski  cool    Im down with anything, Fedor!


With all this talk of AA working on his boxing with Freddie, I wonder how much he's been working his takedown defense which is what he should be the most worried about.  I can Fedor taking him down and dominating on the ground.  I can see AA right now on his back, Fedor in side control.

90  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: April 2009 US Gathering on: January 16, 2009, 01:29:12 PM
It would be cool to set a date soon as well regardless of location so we can start making travel arrangements?  Worst case scenario couldn't we just use the park again like the first day of the gathering last April?
91  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: East Coast Day of Hard Sparring on: January 06, 2009, 09:34:27 AM
We've set the date for February 14th!  That's right kids, Valentines Day.  Come give your east coast friends a stick hickey!

94  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / East Coast Day of Hard Sparring on: January 01, 2009, 08:54:37 PM
East Coast Inhabitants,

We are looking to have a day of hard sparring late January / early February at my gym in State College, PA to help our fighters ready themselves for the April gathering.  Right now we have around five people looking to fight in April from all different weight classes.  Our plan is to get a number of schools from the east coast and mid-west to come and train for a day, spar, hang out, etc.  We want to make the matches as close to Gatherings style as possible while still keep people safe and keeping it in the realm of "sparring" and not fighting.  However, we also want to have everyone push themselves and wear minimal protective gear and use larger diameter sticks.  We also have both a cage and ring to hold the matches in so we will be able to get twice as many matches in during the day if need be.

We would like to avoid WEKAF head gear and instead use fencing masks.  We would also like to limit the hand protection to equal to or lighter than street hockey gloves.  However, if wearing more protection is the only way you would be willing to spar we can deal with it.   We simply want to avoid any non-realistic behavior due to protective gear.

Please post back if you are interested and as soon as we drum up some interest we will set a date that works for everyone.  We have about three other schools interested in joining us so far.  Please don't be shy, come and spar so we can all make ourselves better!  Any questions feel free to email me at ryangruhn@hotmail.com.

Respectfully,

Dog Ryan Gruhn

Did everyone see Frank Mir's fight last night!?  shocked  I've heard him comment numerous times about outside footwork and man did he demonstrate it last night!


98  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Daily Expression of Gratitude on: December 22, 2008, 11:28:52 PM
I'm grateful to have the oppertunity to work with Youth in our Youth Martial Arts program at my gym.  We graduated thirty students tonight to their next belt including one black belt and one assistant instructor!  Nothing gives me more joy than to see the smiles on their faces when they put on their new belts!
99  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Boxing Thread on: December 20, 2008, 06:29:37 PM
It's interesting because the "style" is a well developed game plan which is spelled out in the DBMA Kali Tudo set.  I'm a huge fan of this material as it has led many of my fighters to victories over very formidable opponents.  Triggonomics (outside footwork) is the name of the game:











(from another forum)
Sugar Ray eats this Cuban guy alive for the 1976 Gold Medal.

1.)Always stays outside the Cuban's lead. Works his jab and jab-hook combos. Parry's the jab and puts a cross down the middle.

2.) When he moves right, He never moves into the cross, always laterally with his right hand up.

3.) His footwork is amazing. He does a great little move that the Cuban never catches. He takes one step to his right and then rolls left, getting the Cuban to "bite" on the right step and throw the left cross. Classic. A blueprint for righties everywhere.
