GC,

Is this still in the works?
12  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Prayer and Daily Expression of Gratitude on: July 11, 2013, 11:54:51 PM
Grateful to have come to a place where what I perceived to be a MAJOR problem that was severely affecting my sense of self-worth can now be seen as an exciting opportunity, and that is NOT me "making lemonade" out of the lemons I felt I was being handed. TAC!

Grateful for two of my martial arts students who have come back recently and really poured their hearts and souls into training. They will be testing for rank next week. I am very proud of them.
15  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Prayer and Daily Expression of Gratitude on: June 10, 2013, 03:03:45 PM
Grateful for a great last few days of training with many friends (old and new) and wth some of my instructors.
16  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: 2013 Dog Brothers Tribal Gathering of the Pack on: May 05, 2013, 05:07:54 PM
I was planning on stopping by the last day of the Tribal today to see everyone and wish them well. I am fighting a pretty bad cough today. I would have come by if it were just the sniffles, but I'm feeling pretty congested. Sorry to not be able to stop by.

I hope no one sustained any serious injuries (beyond what I already read about on FB).

Grateful to finish one of two weeks of state testing at the high school at which I teach; this week actually shaped up to be quite fun.

Grateful for the quality police work in Boston.  Well done!

I am grateful for the same.

I have been away from these boards for a while, but I would like to start posting on here a bit more regularly again.

21  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: New DVD coming: The re-enactment of the creation of the DBs on: February 04, 2013, 10:46:31 AM
Sled Dog - I am not alone in my huge amount of respect for you, both for who you were, and who you are.

Guro Crafty - I can literally feel my heart rate go up a little at the thought of seeing the DVD.
22  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Prayer and Daily Expression of Gratitude on: January 31, 2013, 08:10:30 PM

Grateful for a much better perspective than I had yesterday.
24  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Prayer and Daily Expression of Gratitude on: January 25, 2013, 05:55:31 PM
Grateful for my students, my instructors (legends), my mentors/instructors in around my age range, and an emergent set of martial arts contemporaries in my life: people who I either teach in one context and train with in another, or people I teach who know just as much as I do in other areas.

Actually the takeaway comes from years of working in law enforcement, often at the nexus of the criminal justice system and the mentally ill.

Okay. The context of your frustration is better understood.

Forgive me, but getting called a dick on the forum doesn't exactly get my pulse racing.

Good. The pieces you posted are insightful.

I'm blunt, I say what I see. I don't sugarcoat things. That's how I communicate things. You can call it however you like to.

Now I'm clear that you are expressing a written reaction to a topic about which you are passionate.

Because seconds matter in school attacks, only the arming of school staff by means of concealed handguns can possibly deter attacks and save lives.

GM - I am a public high school teacher in southern California. The line above caught my attention. The information about districts with concealed carry permits is also fascinating. Is there a particular department in my district I should contact to find out what our policy is regarding concealed carry permits? I realize CA is a "May Grant" state and depending on the county a CCW might be impossible to obtain, but I would like more information.

When I got home from work last Friday, my wife and I had a chance to debrief the shooting for the first time. I said something like, "We (educators) need a highly-regulated way to conceal weapons in the classroom. Even if the average school site only has 20-25% of the staff armed, that is a huge deterrant."

No sarcasm intended, but I really would like more information if you would be willing to supply it.

Tom,

Having grown up with the movie Bloodsport (that movie got me into Tae Kwon Do when I was 11), it never occurred to me in my youth that when the movie was supposed to be based on a true story, the story had been embellished. I'm wondering if you wouldn't mind please sharing some of your more memorable Frank Dux stories (good or bad) in this thread? I'd really like to know more about what your time was like with the man, and what your no-doubt evolving impression of him was as time went on.

GD

PS - Almost a decade ago, I spent over $600 on seminars with a man who had photoshopped his face over the face of someone in a picture with Bruce Lee, and claimed to be a private student. We've all been there as far as putting our well-intentioned beliefs into someone who does not deserve them.

Good thing the left pushed through deinstitutionalization decades ago.

What a brilliant takeaway from that article, GM.
Since tone can sometimes be hard to convey on an Internet discussion board, let me confirm the presence of scathing sarcasm in the previous sentence.

No doubt that you'll counter by writing that I am trying to suppress you opinion or your expression. Let me save you the trouble by writing that your right to your opinions and your freedom of expression are good things.

Just please stop purposefully being a dick.
33  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Prayer and Daily Expression of Gratitude on: December 12, 2012, 09:57:26 AM
Grateful to have completed a minor task.

Grateful for a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday. Due to some family dynamics, we had two separate dinners. I am happily fasting today!
40  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Prayer and Daily Expression of Gratitude on: November 22, 2012, 12:33:37 PM
A beautiful selection, GC.

Grateful for a LARGE gathering of family for Thanksgiving that will take place at my home for the first time in my life. How blessed and humbled I am to be an adult with a young family of my own, and a home in which to host the day.
41  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Prayer and Daily Expression of Gratitude on: November 14, 2012, 11:40:54 PM

47  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Prayer and Daily Expression of Gratitude on: October 29, 2012, 11:56:44 AM
My son tripped last night and cut his scalp fairly deeply. I'm grateful that while he needed four staples last night, today he is acting like he feels just fine.

Also, prayers for my friends on the east coast. I hope you are safe, any damage that comes your way is minor.

SG - I teach 11th grade AP English at the #2 ranked public high school in San Bernardino County (the largest country in the lower 48). On one hand, the students are under enormous pressure, made even worse by the economy which is making college admission, and even securing classes once admitted incredibly difficult. By the same token, this is my 10th year as a secondary public school teacher; every year, the character/morals of the kids seems different. It's completely inconsistent. Some years, the kids are finding ways to legitimately complete inhuman amounts of work and activities, and then the next year, they are all copying their The Scarlet Letter essay from the same PH.D. candidate's blog. When it's your kid, and you're watching them work themselves to death, I can only imagine what that feels like. It's not very comforting in the moment, but you need to do everything you can to let your daughter know that her hard work will pay off. Even being an educator in southern California, I understand the admission process for NYC public high school system, and I have read about "Stuy"; your daughters achievements are already amazing. Please keep us posted of her progress.

BD - Having small children of my own, it's the idea of their molestation/kidnapping/murders that taps me into the mindset of taking horrible, American Psycho-like revenge on their attackers. I'm glad that very little in this life takes me to that place mentally, but the thought of someone damaging them with finality certainly does.

I
