701  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Messing up on my North South Choke- Help? on: December 23, 2007, 01:11:09 AM
Woof,
 More like pulling his shoulder into your bicep, with his neck in between the two. I'm taking about a North/South shoulder choke. Where you run your left arm completely behind the back of the neck with your bicep against the side of his neck and place your left hand on his opposite side shoulder, then place your right hand on top of your left hand and squeeze inward toward your bicep clamping his neck in between. Your neck will be out side of his arm of the shoulder you are pressing in on. This choke can work in the guard on bottom, mounted top or from a set out or head lock position on the side mount.

Woof Maxx,
 There are two arteries, one on each side of the neck that have got to be closed off. On one side your bicep provides the pinch point and on the otherside it's your opponents own shoulder that clamps off the opposite side artery. For the choke to work you have to pull in with the bicep and put your other hand on the ball of your opponents shoulder and push in, effectively creating a vise like clamp that squeezes inward on both sides of the neck at the same time. If your opponent taps simply release the pressure. If your opponent doesn't tap it's because you don't have both sides clamped or if he goes limp after about 8 seconds you've successfully choked him out and you need to immediately release the pressure. As you apply the choke you must constantly monitor your opponents condition to ensure his safety. One, make sure you are not clamping down on his wind pipe as you squeeze, remember you are cutting off the supply of blood to the brain not air to his lungs and two make sure of his state of consciousness if he passes out and you don't realize it soon enough, well that's very dangerous. Holding a choke on for more than a few seconds can cause irreparable damage or death.

Woof,
 The recent survival story of the family in California that went missing four days, when a snow storm caught them off guard during a short trip to cut a Christmas tree, highlights some points I made in my last post. Finding shelter, procuring water etc all came out to be apart of their ability to survive. However,the most interesting point that the story brings up is what I call the three hour tour syndrome (Gilligan's Island). This family did some things right and were lucky that a search chopper showed up when it did to rescue them but I'll state the obvious here and say it would have been better if they hadn't gone through four days in the cold to begin with. If they at least had a backpack with some space blankets, a camp stove, some food and maybe a signal flare with them or if they had kept a check on the weather forecast, it may have never happen in the first place. But you see they were just going out to cut a Christmas tree; what could go wrong? Right!
  They didn't want to spend four days in the cold, that was the last thing on their mind. You see the key survival lesson here is to remember that if anything can go wrong , it will. It doesn't matter if it's just a short hike or a day trip you should always have the appropriate survival gear with you. In your home, in your car and on your person. And keep an eye on the weather. grin Merry Christmas and happy tree cutting!

Woof,
 I've talked to a number of folks who are opposed to hunting or squeamish about killing and especially, cleaning game. Most however, say that they would do it if they had to in order to live. The problem with that is a survival situation is no time to start on the job training. Hunting, trapping and processing game involve a set of skills that need to be developed over time and experienced hunters still fail to take game. Survival hunting is going to be even more difficult because you're not likely to have the modern weapons and equipment at hand. Learning primitive skills like making snares from available materials in the wild and fashioning and using a spear or throwing stick also takes some time to gain proficiency.
 So if you're serious about being able to survive and can bring yourself to do it, the next time a friend or relative goes hunting , tag a long. I know it's an emotional issue on many fronts but the reality is if you don't learn at least some of the basics of building a shelter, finding water, starting a fire, and hunting and trapping, your survivability beyond a few days in the wild will be near zero. Going on a hunt with a friend is a good start to working out the emotional issues and squeamishness. For those of you who are opposed to hunting because of humane and environmental reasons, with just a little effort you will come to realize that if you like the all the wetlands and forest full of game animals that we enjoy here in the U.S. you need to thank a hunter. Hunting maintains healthy populations of game animals and money from hunting permits goes to wildlife habitat restoration programs and covers the cost of enforcing game laws; I'm talking billions of dollars and millions of acres of land that's protected from development. As for the humaneness of hunting: how humane is it to let game over populate and die of starvation and disease and at the same time let them damage the environment? Look, I know people like to put their own human emotions onto animals as if they feel the same way we do. They don't. They don't process pain the same as we do either; I've shot deer in the vitals with an arrow and have them run away for a few yards and start grazing again like nothing had happened, then within a few minutes they die. Most hunters have had this same experience. I know I'll never be able to convince die hard anti hunters and PETA members to take up hunting but for those of you with an open mind and thoughts of having half a chance at making it through a survival situation, please give it a shot. grin

Woof,
 When people think about survival food, they generally think about freeze dried or can rations that they keep on hand for emergencies and that's about it. If something happened to their stash or they couldn't get to it for whatever reason, then they would be out of luck. So having a plan as to how to procure food beyond stockpiling some beefjerky sticks is a good idea. If you're out in the country you'll have plenty of options but you'll need certain skills to capitalize on them. You'll need to learn primitive hunting and gathering techniques even if you have firearms to help take game. This is especially true if we're talking long term survival situations. If you're in the city you will need a different set of skills to locate food and get out of town if necessary. There is always looting and lawlessness to deal with. Being prepared and having a plan to deal with these problems before something goes wrong will make your survival more likely to happen.
 So, learning how to fish, hunt, trap/snare and recognize edible plants then prepare them to eat is one set of skills to pick up and then learning how to barter, trade, network and deal with the realities of a city run-a-muck is another set. Remember, "a" plan is better than no plan but a well thought out plan is more likely to work. wink Of course you could always wait for the government to come and help you. grin Try www.survival.com for more ideas and learning materials.

 This site offers a DVD that covers skinning and processing large game. These are useful survival skills to have even if you don't normally hunt. These techniques can be use for wild game or domesticated herd animals. With tax and shipping, it costs about $18. www.fw.ky.gov  Go to the righthand side of the page and click on PURCHASE KY AFIELD DVDs HERE. There's more info on the site as well.

Woof,
 American farmers have had twenty years to lobby the government to issue more Green cards and work visas for legal migrant workers but the fact is they have preferred illegal aliens over legal because they didn't need to pay in any social security, workers comp. or take out taxes on them. They could exploit and under pay them as they wished, make them work and live under the worse possible conditions and not worry about them complaining. It's not like they just woke up yesterday and found out all their employees were illegal. Now they have the nerve to cry about being punished for the mess they have helped to create? Well, boo hoo.

From: Tom Tancredo for President progress report,

              Let Down By The State Of The Union Address?
Dear friend of this campaign,
  Thanks to your early financial support, my campaign for the Republican nomination is really gearing up. Please know that I'm very grateful! And as a result of my campaign, the causes we deeply believe in are being heard nationally. In the last week, I've appeared on Fox and Friends, Neil Cavuto, Wolf Blitzer, Bill O'Reilly, and just this evening, Paula Zahn, plus just about every radio talk show you can think of. I'm traveling weekly to Iowa and New Hampshire to meet with voters in those all-important early states. In fact, we're looking for office locations in Iowa now. Wherever I go, the message I bring is the same. I stand for Border Security, Immigration Sanity, and a return to basic Law and Order along our porous borders. Last night, as I was listening to the President's State of the Union Address, I felt very sad, let down, and very, very angry. The White House seems determined to work with Pelosi and McCain to ram through an illegal alien amnesty. He seems almost glad to have a Democratic Congress! Both the President and the Democrats like to call what they want "comprehensive immigration reform," but we aren't buying it! The truth is, they're trotting out the same old pig... with a slightly different shade of lipstick. When I was first elected to Congress, there was no organized effort to fight the open-borders crowd who ran Capitol Hill. Things looked very bleak. So I formed the House Immigration Caucus, which now boasts over 100 members of Congress! Since I formed the Caucus not a single amnesty bill has passed in Congress! Now I'm taking this fight national, with my exploratory committee for a Presidential run. If you feel you would like to make a donation to back my efforts please go to www.teamtancredo.org and pass this on to all your friends.Thank You! Sincerely, Tom Tancredo

Woof,
  I've discussed an ambulatory stop for this situation that the gunman can use very effectively to end the threat of the knife getting to him, on another gun thread. The person holding the knife is the delivery system for the knife; if you render him incapable of covering the distance between you and him, it's not likely the knife will reach you either. Taking away his ability to move with an advanced hand gunning technique that's quick and accurate is not an option I've seen brought up here. It's a nice little method to have in your bag of tricks. I can't go into details here because the thread is on the Dogbrothers' members only site. Something to think about though.

Of course the the big advantage is the info you get from the members only site. I can't tell you what goes on there because everyone agrees not to share information or vid-lessons from the site with non-members, but I can tell you being a member gives you an edge on fighting knowledge and training methods that hone your skills. Plus it's alot of fun! When I first joined my reaction was 'God, I hope nobody else finds out what's here.' However, it became clear that it was the members themselves that made the site so interesting. So, I hope more of you will take the leap and add to the mix.

Dr. Fuller Torrey a research psychiatrist and leading authority on schizophrenia, has put forth a theory that an infection, Toxoplasma gondii, is a contributing cause for schizophrenia. T. gondii is transmitted to humans solely by cats.
 Until the nineteenth century, most people in Europe and the U.S. thought of cats as tools of the devil. In the second half of the nineteenth century a cat craze took hold and house cats grew in number. Within twenty years of this change, the number of people admitted to psychiatric hospitals for insanity in England and the U.S. nearly tripled.
 Dr. Torrey thinks that some people have faulty DNA coding that allows the T. gondii infection to act like a slow virus, like Mad Cow Disease. shocked

The British government banned handguns in 1997 to put an end to gun related crimes. The UK now reports that gun crime nearly doubled in the four years from 1998-99 to 2002-03. The serious violent crime rate has soared 69%, robbery is up 45% and murders up 54%. Before the ban from 1993 to 1997 armed robberies had fallen 50% but since the ban the rate has shot back up to pre 1993 levels.
  Austaralia has had its crime rate soar immediately after its 1996 gun control measures were enacted. Violent crime averaged 32 percent higher and armed robbery rates increased 74% in the six years since the bans.
  Canada also has seen growing crime rates after its gun bans were enacted. Canada had a crime rate of 963 per 100,000 in 2003; a rate twice that of the U.S.
  As Britain and other countries were putting limits on gun ownership the U.S. was greatly liberalizing the right of citizens to carry concealed handguns. Thirty-eight states have right to carry laws in place. Crime has fallen faster in these states than the national average. Yes, the U.S. still has gun crimes, but 70% of American murders take place in just 3.5% of our states counties and most were gang and drug related.
  San Fran. don't go down that road of gun bans.

In my last post I intentionally left out a comma between anti-gun and control freaks. In context it would read , anti-gun, control freaks. Anyone paying attention to context woud have corrected the missing comma in their mind. The reason I did this is because in the second admendment between the word militia and the right of the people is a comma. Even if this comma was missing anyone who was paying attention to context would still be able to tell the writer was talking about two different ideas. One about an individual right and the other about how this right is also important to maintain a strong militia.
  Even with the comma in it's proper place the gun-control folks still ignore the context.

Something else that liberal/socialist/anti-constitution/anti-American/ anti-gun control freaks overlook is the fact that every time the word "People" is used in the admendments, it is always referring to individual citizens. I would like to point out that the second admendment reads: the right of the "people" to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The rest of the admendment was to confirm that not only was it nessasary for the individual to be armed for his own protection but that it was a national need as well.

Quote from: Crafty_Dog
Woof Szymon:

The American ear recognizes the phrase "a well-regulated militia" from the second amendment to our Constitution, which is the one guaranteeing the right of the people to bear arms.  There is argument about whether this right is that of the individual (the correct position in my opinion) or of the "militias", which are now held to be the "National Guard" of the various states of the United States.



Hey Guys,
  The argument that the anti-gun/anti-personal defense/anti- individual rights, crowd likes to think negates our god given, individual, constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, is that the second admendment was intended for a state militia and a state militia only. They have been proven wrong by constitutional lawyers and historians time and time again. They believe that if they repeat a lie long enough, often enough, that they will imprint this lie into the minds of the American public as being fact. They are close to doing that. Most Americans do not understand what their rights are or why they have them. Many Americans don't know that our form of government is a constitutional republic.

Hey Guys,
  The afternoon before Rita hit, Fox New's John Gibson ran a segment on Texas gun laws. During this segment he called laws that allowed homeowners to use deadly force to protect themselves and family, draconian. He further warn everyone evacuating to watchout for gun toteing citizens who would shoot them on sight.
  This was a blatant attack on law-abideing citizens right to keep and bear arms as well as an attack on a persons right to self-defense. He missed a chance to warn looters, rapist and murders not to take advantage of the storm, just to take a swipe at gun owners.
  I have asked everyone I know to e-mail Mr. Gibson at myword@foxnews.com and him what they think about his comments. Keep it clean, and no threats O.K.
  We need to start responding to these attacks on our rights. Otherwise we won't have them for much longer.

When will these governments learn that it's not  how many or what kinds of weapons a person has that causes violence and that the only way to stop it or reduce it is to have law abiding citizens who are capable of protecting themselves. It's pretty damn obvious the government can't protect them. If your neighbor hates you but knows your armed, he might not stop hating you but he'll think twice before doing anything to you even if he's drunk!

Hey Folks,
  I thought this post of Crafty's was worth pulling out of the earlier pages for a read again. With all these ego driven show-offs performing the most useless techniques possible at demos, it should be required reading for anyone starting out in the martial arts as well as some of the so called masters.

My view of individual rights play heavy on my views about abortion. I think a womans right to choose is a valid right. However, my view of when human life begins plays heavy on my view that no one should choose to abort living human tissue created by God,( not man ) and that God will be the judge in this matter. Our rights to be free thinking, self- determined individuals with a will and a mind to choose our own course of action, were God given. So choose wisely ladies.  shocked

Has anyone been following what the european media has been saying about the aftermath of the hurricane? They seem to be happy about it, which in light of their own failure to save the 40 thousand people who  slowly died during the heatwave that hit awhile back, makes them look less and less like friends.  Sad

Hey Guys,
 I didn't notice any post that pointed out that the Coast Guard was there early and very effective in their efforts not only in New Orleans but the entire zone of destruction along the coast. I'm thinking that instead of big government agencies running the show maybe the Coast Guard should call the shots in future disasters of this nature: afterall it's what they do everyday.

Hey Tom,
  Brownie, didn't know what effect  the levee failing would have on the situation. He was getting his info from the locals who didn't know how bad it was. When I heard the levee had failed, My first thought was, well most of the people are out. Sure he F up but who didn't.

Just a reminder,
  Brownie, had already responded to three major hurricane relief efforts and was highly praised for his oversight of  FEMA during those events. He was however, blamed for makeing some pay outs to quickly, resulting in some fraud. Oh how soon we forget. wink

The levees were built in 1927 mainly to protect New Orleans from the yearly floods of the Mississippi River. Since that time plans were drawn up to increase the number of levees and shore up areas that were considered unable to withstand a direct hit from a major hurricane. The Army Corps of Engineers tried numerous times to implement those plans during the 50s and 60s. They were sued by enviromentalist who said wetlands would be adversely affected by these new levees and the shoreing up of old levees. They won.

   CAR JACKERS NEW SCHEME
       Be aware of a new car-jacking scheme. Imagine you walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside. Then you lock all your doors, start the engine and shift into reverse, and you look into the rearview mirror to back out of your parking space and you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window.
  So, you shift into park, unlock your doors and jump out of your car to remove that paper ( or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view... When you reach the back end of your car, that is when the car jackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off!
  Your engine was running, ( ladies would have their purse in the car ) and they practically mow you down as they speed off in your car.
  BE AWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED.
Just drive away and remove the paper that is stuck to your window later, and be thankful that you read this e-mail. I hope you will forward this to friends and family... especially to women! A purse contains all identification, and you certainly do not want someone getting your home address. They already Have YOUR KEYS!

Hey FC,
  This type of stance is used in every weapon style out there. Its' main function is to cover distance when launching an attack, not as a defensive posture. You step into an on-coming attack with a block and counter attack. This leaves you righthand foreward and close, with your attacker on the defensive.

Also, is there a DB training group in the Atlanta area I can join.


Hey LD,
  Try e-mailing Taji Nangi in Atlanta, his address is nanji17@excite.com he is a Dan Inosanto FMA instructor but is not a member of DBMA as far as I know. However, taking FMA classes and getting vid-lessons from Guro Crafty as a member of DBMA is a great way to start.

Hey Logan,
  The flex stick that is offered by Dogbrothers MA is the 31" version of the action flex and you can get it at a discount as well as other items and Vid-Lessons when you join the DBMA.

Hey All,
  I've been useing the Flexsticks to train transitions from stick, to clinch & grappling techniques. I've found that adding new takedowns and submission holds without having my training partner go all out defending aganist me with his stick gives a false result as to how well the move works. However, when we train all out it's all most impossible to work out the details of the move before one of us gets hurt. Working with the Flexsticks has given us a middle ground where the defense can be strong enough to be realistic but not to the point that working out problem areas is impossible.
  By the way, the Flexsticks work on the ground too!

Hey All,
  I would like to give everyone a heads-up on the new "flex sticks" offered for sale on the Dogbrothers site. These new training sticks are a must have item.
  The weight and feel of the sticks are comparable to the real thing and the length is the same as the Crafty Dog model sticks about 31". The big advantage of these sticks is, that they are less punishing on the body than any padded stick I have ever used. However, they still give you plenty of incentive to get out of the way. Keeping the training as close to full contact as you can get without having serious stick hickies, is a big plus. Anyone who has ever used regular padded sticks knows what I'm talking about.
  Some protective equipment, like a mask and gloves, will still be needed for all out sparring but nothing heavy duty. After fighting with these sticks you can still go to the beach and not look like your wife is beating you again! Cheesy
  So, go to the on line store and buy the right equipment, that will enable you to train harder, more often and realistically in the Dogbrother Way.
                                        WOOF P.C.
