I was trying to find a t-shirt with just a picture of a cherry on it, I wonder if I can find a pink one.

Leather sounds interesting-  I have read about fighters using whips...lol

Looks like CNN is coming to do a piece on us.

Ah!  What to wear, what to wear...

dianhsuhe:

Sorry for my geographic ignorance.  Would Surf Dog in Hemet be of practical use to you?  Or Beowulf and Fu Dog in Moreno Valley?



 grin not being familiar with Santee actually makes you cooler.

Moreno Valley is about 1hr 20m from here so depending on the schedule it would be possible, Hemet is a little farther-

I have finally got in touch with a gentleman who was mentioned on this forum awhile back (thread was: places to train near San Diego).  He said he might be interested in starting a training group down here.  Not sure of his DBMAA training but he mentioned training twice a week for 2 years with Burton Richardson, which caught me eye.

Ouch!  Where are you located?

Guro Crafty-  I live in Santee, CA. which is just a few miles east of San Diego.
55  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Guide Dog Opening Martial Arts School in Pomona, California on: September 05, 2011, 01:31:57 PM
Google Maps says 96 miles one way for me...hmmm
56  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Night Owl's idea on: September 04, 2011, 02:09:12 AM
Just clarifying, the facebook post mentioned doing away with the knife fights altogether but the forum post here did not...?

"Night Owl has commented to me that with the large number of fighters now at the Gatherings the day can get rather long and the audience really starts thinning out that we should think about dropping the knife only fights altogether. Given the increase of knife play during the stickfights (either hidden knives being brought into play, or full on stick & knife fights) his idea is that knife will not be lost, but that the tempo of things will be picked up.

Putting this up for discussion."

Sifu Cordova, you are a wise old master compared to me...

Wish I was 6'4" and 225, I am 6'3" and 235!   shocked

Shedding weight with my strict cherry diet as we move closer to 09/18

Grateful that my buddy survived a motorcycle accident.

Wondering if my skills are lacking in regard to my computer skills.  I sent my FR form via Fax a couple weeks ago.  I know Pretty Kitty has a lot on her plate.  Did mine get lost in the suffle?  Should I send it again?  Sorry to be persistant or a PIA but something about seeing your name on "THE" list makes me all tingly inside  wink

woof-woof KD

The same thing happened to me and Guro Crafty told me to just email her again and WHAM, I was on the list pretty quick after that.  She still had 1,000 emails or so I think. LOL

As a cherry fighter I got excited when my name hit the list but instead of "tingly" like a veteran, I just giggled like a school girl then got nervous.

Grateful that I am still alive.
61  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Any Training Groups Near San Diego? on: August 26, 2011, 12:06:37 PM
I have always had high regard for Guro Narrie Babao. (He can be seen in our "Grandfathers Speak" DVD)  He lives somewhere in the San Diego area.  I have been given permission by his son to post his contact info here:

" His e-mail Narrie_b@hotmail.com. His cell (619) 980-6144"

I realize this is an old thread but wanted to update the info. and confirm that Guro Babao is teaching at his school on Mercury Street (Kearny Mesa).

I have tried to get in touch with both the gentlemen above who live in San Diego to train, not sure how much luck I will have since it has been 3 years- LOL

Thanks-
62  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Fall Dog Brothers Open Gathering of the Pack 9/18/11 on: August 26, 2011, 11:44:36 AM
AH!  So there was stickfighting with the Scottish.  I should petition the Highland Games folks to have it added.  LOL

VERY interesting thanks for posting- an inch above the eyeline?  I will be happy if that is all I get next month.
63  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Fall Dog Brothers Open Gathering of the Pack 9/18/11 on: August 25, 2011, 04:45:40 PM
Well I am of Scottish/Irish decent so I guess I can claim "Clan Buchanan", but unfortunately the Highland Games have exactly ZERO stick-fighting involved.

So I am from Clan Cherry!  Does it make me a dork that I was excited that my name was just added to the Fighter's List?  This is getting more real every day...

64  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Fall Dog Brothers Open Gathering of the Pack 9/18/11 on: August 23, 2011, 02:41:40 PM

Thats covered too...  I always have a med kit in the car *(Its more than the average bag of tricks), and there are several DB's with medical backgrounds that Im sure will be there as well.

Wink

Great thanks! That sure puts my mind at ease.     Wait!!!      No it doesn't! LOL

I say it is about 2:1 that I wake up around Tuesday (without a few major organs) in a bathtub full of ice somewhere near Reno.   shocked
65  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Fall Dog Brothers Open Gathering of the Pack 9/18/11 on: August 23, 2011, 01:43:04 PM
Thanks Toki!  I will clear my schedule for the following Monday then also-
66  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Fall Dog Brothers Open Gathering of the Pack 9/18/11 on: August 23, 2011, 02:29:03 AM
" In my experience with the DB's, we really are fiends at the end of the day."

Woof Guide Dog, I'm assuming this is Freudian? 
Can't wait to see everyone again - and ESPECIALLY the post fight gathering at the bar....
I've been doing martial arts in one form or another for over 25 years and have never seen post fight camaraderie like I felt after my first Open Gathering last year.  If you are planning on fighting, make sure you also allot time to make the post Gathering gathering! 

Rick

Is this open to all fighters?  If I am not seeking medical attention I will be there...I can drink MUCH better than I can fight that is for sure-
67  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Fall Dog Brothers Open Gathering of the Pack 9/18/11 on: August 22, 2011, 09:17:30 PM
Big thanks to Guide Dog for his "Real advice" post above.  I appreciate you taking the time to share that info.

68  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Fall Dog Brothers Open Gathering of the Pack 9/18/11 on: August 20, 2011, 07:11:46 PM
Great write-up C-Mighty Dog!  Thanks for putting it out there- this event is exactly what I have been looking for (it seems) so insight is not just greatly appreciated but INVALUABLE.

I should have done this years ago, especially after I saw the Nat Geo thing a few years ago.

As for the Chatter- Thanks for the input Point Dog.  I have experienced it in things from athletics to law enforcement but neither of those had me fidgeting 4 weeks from anything.  I view "chatter" as a good thing generally (at least based on my previous experiences).  It feels like my body just doing a systems check before I am about to be tested or enter a dangerous scenario.

cheers

As a "cherry" fighter it seems to me that part of the learning/growing/finding the truth is the time leading up to the event.  I will be honest I have woken up every morning with butterflies in my stomach and every time I leave the gym I wonder if I did enough compared to the folks I will be stepping out with.

I am already learning about myself- I will consider getting up there and stepping onto the mat a small victory in itself.

The other night I was showing a few of the DBMA videos to my fiance when she noticed me kind of fidgeting on the couch.  She said are you okay?  I said "they call it chatter". LOL

CHEERS

The three questions:

1) Do you remember the first time you had sex?

2) Were you any good at it?

3) Have you gotten better since then?

Ahh, I see...
71  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Fall Dog Brothers Open Gathering of the Pack 9/18/11 on: August 08, 2011, 12:00:25 PM
8. If you do score a shot, and your opponent waves you off to indicate the fight is over, by all means, hit him/her as hard as you can anyway. STRIKE HARD! STRIKE FAST! NO MERCY, SIR!

SWEEP THE LEG!

Woof,
Quote
I would like to bring my "chucks" but as a newbie I do not how realistic all of this is.  I will probably get the crap kicked out of me in the first fight...

Bring your "Chucks" I'm pretty sure you will find someone to fight you with them.  As far as realistic goes. VERY! As real as it gets.
Be ready to fight hard.
            Howling Dog

Will do thanks!  When I said realistic I meant my physical ability to have a fight with the chucks, since it would be my 3rd fight minimum and I may be TOAST by then.

And I may as well ask what is "the parable of the cherry"?
73  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Fall Dog Brothers Open Gathering of the Pack 9/18/11 on: August 05, 2011, 11:24:28 PM
Poidog  I will take it!  I appreciate you folks spending some time on us newbies and look forward to the event!

C-Mighty Dog told me to start with a knife fight to get my "nerves" in order, would you recommend I pick another newbie for this?  Where am I likely to get the biggest benefit against a Dog Bro- single stick?

I am down for anything and looking to get the most out of this experience.  I would like to bring my "chucks" but as a newbie I do not how realistic all of this is.  I will probably get the crap kicked out of me in the first fight...
74  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Fall Dog Brothers Open Gathering of the Pack 9/18/11 on: August 04, 2011, 11:08:33 AM
Poi-Dog:  If you are volunteering to school some newbies I would love to make that list.

Thanks to Mighty-Dog for the advice.  Shoes, got it- We teach many weapons in Kara-Ho but the stick is not one (or two) of them.  I have only attended a couple of seminars maybe 15 years ago.  I am not going to be able to attend the upcoming camp, I already tried to make that happen...I am fully aware that I am fresh meat at this event-  shocked

Still VERY much looking forward to the higher learning, painful as it may be.

Gloves-  I have full gauntlet motorcycle roadracing gloves that seem to have as much if not more protection than some of the gloves used at the event, are they acceptable?

CHEERS
75  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Fall Dog Brothers Open Gathering of the Pack 9/18/11 on: August 03, 2011, 10:02:54 PM
Oops almost forgot.

Gear-  I have read and seen where folks are using a fencing mask and hockey gloves is that correct?  Are there any particular types of masks and gloves you folks would recommend, my fencing knowledge is a little down...lol

I am curiosu about the stick types used also but I will research that before asking a stupid question in here...

Thanks again
I take it that you are not a FMA practioner. "Dianhshe" reminds me of a Kara-Ho person. At any rate, the Hockey gloves are not actually hockey gloves aas they are too padded and some have a plastic thumb cover (no, no) You can buy all your gear, Mask, Gloves and Stick through www.bloodsport.com  This is Pappy Dog's company (Kombat Instruments Limited). You will also need a mouth piece. Since we are having it at last years venue. You will need a pair of wrestling shoes that have NOT been on the street.

Thanks for the info. I am the Kara-Ho person. LOL  I will get the stuff from bloodsport.com then, thanks again for that.  I would rather support one of you guys than just fleabay. 

Barefoot is ok as well correct?

This will be my first Gathering so I have NO IDEA what I am getting myself into except watching clips on youtube.

It looks like most fights are scheduled at the event on the spot as opposed to in here?

Tips from the experienced folks are appreciated.
78  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Fall Dog Brothers Open Gathering of the Pack 9/18/11 on: May 19, 2011, 01:03:22 AM
Looking forward to my first gathering...See you folks there!
