I personally use the latigo as a ranged weapon and have a second weapon for in close encounters " daga or barong  is what i use in play as the second weapon".   That being said i have no talent and very little fighting experience with the latigo, it strikes me that without the mask and with the daga as the primary weapon it seems a potent risk to your vision at long range and in combination with the blade if available something i wouldn't discard out right.   I was am curious of the whips properties as a lubid type tool once across by a man that is wise in these things.

Woof to that Tobias.  They should make a guy like Rad Martinez the President of the country. He has heart and cares about his family and keeps his word no matter what. A true warrior all the way around and a leader that all men should aspire to be like.

When your "REALLY" looking to improve your game/art you need to ask yourself what is the most efficient means.

Where do i get the most bang for my buck, And the most out of my time spent away from family.

In my opinion training with Guro Crafty has been one of the most efficient and longest lasting ways in which i improve my personal game.  When i walk away from seminar with  Guro Crafty i have clear notes, have had time to repeat techniques  in seminars,  my brain and body have an understanding of the movement and theory behind the movement. And Guro is a VERY hands on trainer/teacher that in my experiences is always circulating the room teaching.

Back in the day i missed training with many instructors who are no longer with us. I made excuses and now the opportunity is gone.  I hear the stories from others and wonder where my game would be today if i had worked harder at growing my game in my younger years. 

Tomorrow is promised to no man.

I hope to see many of you in Memphis.

BMI is a regional  hub and in Bloomington Illinois- its the way to go depending on cost, if you factor in rental car.

Once your in Bloomington you wont need a car as me and  my guys can give you rides.

IND  is in Indianapolis and thats 2 hours and 30 min by car on a very easy stretch of interstate. but again you factor in the cost of rental compared to a direct flight into BMI.

Chicago O'hare  and Chicago Midway are both also technically 2 hours and 30 min away but the traffic is worse than LA (IMOP)
and the drive regurally turns into 3:30 or more

I have had a few people contact me in the last few days to advise that they missed the July 15th deadline for the early seminar price of $175.00 for the general public.

To be fair to all I have decided to extend the early deadline to September 1st.

also im intrested in black shirt and his load when the punches are thrown. He makes a decision not to get involved at that moment and none of the other 3 know hes in the fight with them.
73  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Door Work, Bouncing, Bodyguarding on: July 02, 2010, 12:38:26 PM
as a side bar...
Looking at the bad guys shirt and the presence of both bouncers out side something seems amiss. like he has been tossed from the bar and keeps trying to come back in.  To be this far form the door seems a big mistake in my oppinion. I think this problem has been going on for awhile.

I think the bouncers reaction time is able to pick up the punch due to the fact that this isnt the begining of the fight.

2 cents.

Serriously though other then chest/ torso  It will dificult to place that shot.  It has always seemed like a mid mast shot on purpose,
not aimed.

I could be very wrong.

also doesnt the shot closer to arms or legs make it easier for the libms to wrap cords and pull out the prong?

I dont know the answeres to any of this just speculating out loud.

Who are our experts on this ?

A friend of mine is a doctor, while he was in medical school  many moon ago we were all on a camping trip sitting around the fire.  The question came up what exactly "was/is" fire.  He gave a long drawn out chemical explanation of fire, at the end of his explanation I simply added that fire is hot.

Some times science distorts the most primal reality's.

To me the answer to the physics question isn't a quantitative one but a more visceral one.

http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/02/23/forgotten.veterans/index.html

CNN) -- More than 60 years after reneging on a promise to the hundreds of thousands of Filipinos who fought for the United States during World War II, the U.S. government will soon be sending out checks -- to the few who are still alive.


Veteran Franco Arcebal says, "we are loyal to the United States, except that the United States has forgotten us."

 "For a poor man like me, $15,000 is a lot of money," said 91-year-old Celestino Almeda.

Still, he said, "After what we have suffered, what we have contributed for the sake of democracy, it's peanuts. It's a drop in the bucket."

During the war, the Philippines was a U.S. commonwealth. The U.S. military promised full veterans benefits to Filipinos who volunteered to fight. More than 250,000 joined.

Then, in 1946, President Truman signed the Rescission Act, taking that promise away.

Today, only about about 15,000 of those troops are still alive, according to the American Coalition for Filipino Veterans. A provision tucked inside the stimulus bill that President Obama signed calls for releasing $198 million that was appropriated last year for those veterans. Those who have become U.S. citizens get $15,000 each; non-citizens get $9,000.

"I'm very thankful," said Patrick Ganio, 88, the coalition's president. "We Filipinos are a grateful people."

Ganio was among the tens of thousands of Filipinos at the infamous battle of Bataan, a peninsula on Manila Bay opposite the Philippine capital. He was captured and beaten by Japanese troops before ultimately being freed, suffering from malaria and then resuming his service to the U.S. military.

Don't Miss
Obama fires up House Democrats for stimulus bill
"The record of the Philippine soldiers for bravery and loyalty is second to none," Truman wrote to the leaders of the House and Senate in 1946. "Their assignment was as bloody and difficult as any in which our American soldiers engaged. Under desperate circumstances they acquitted themselves nobly."

Though Truman said the Rescission Act resulted in "discrimination," he signed it.

"There can be no question but that the Philippine veteran is entitled to benefits bearing a reasonable relation to those received by the America veteran, with whom he fought side by side," he said. "From a practical point of view, however, it must be acknowledged that certain benefits granted by the GI bill of rights cannot be applied in the case of the Philippine veteran."

Some historians say financial concerns were paramount: The cost of funding full veterans benefits to all those Filipinos, particularly in the wake of the costly war, would have been a heavy burden.

The National Alliance for Filipino Veterans Equity offers a different explanation. "In 1946, discrimination against people of color was the rule of law," the group says in a document it submitted to the Obama-Biden transition team in November.

"The second-class treatment of Filipino World War II veterans is another example from this historical period."

For decades, Filipino activists and their supporters have fought for the full benefits. They've petitioned and picketed. Almeda, a widower who now lives in Virginia with his daughter, once chained himself to the fence outside the White House.

"I was fined $50 for civil disobedience and was arrested," he says now, chuckling. He says he was just looking for answers.

Despite encouraging words from U.S. presidents, including George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, the benefits were never restored.

"Only 70,000 Philippine veterans remain alive, and they hope to stay alive long enough to see those benefits reinstated," CNN reported in 1997. "There's a bill, stuck in committee in Congress, that would do just that."

That effort, just like so many before, fell apart.

"We were loyal to the United States. Even up to now, we are loyal to the United States, except that the United States has forgotten us in many ways," said Franco Arcebal, another leader of the American Coalition for Filipino Veterans. "It's only now, because of the insistence of Sen. [Daniel] Inouye in the Senate, he was able to act on this."

Inouye, D-Hawaii, inserted the language in the stimulus bill, calling it "a matter of honor."

The honor comes too late for the many Filipino veterans who passed away waiting for this moment. Families of deceased veterans are not eligible to receive the money.

For those who are alive, the checks could make a real difference.

"Practically all of us are below the poverty line now at this age. We have no way of earning a living," Arcebal said.

But, he emphasized, "it does not correct the injustice and discrimination done to us 60 years ago. ... We were not granted school benefits. We were not granted hospital benefits. ... And in the 60 years, several billion dollars were saved by the U.S. government for not paying 250,000 of us.

"Now we are only 15,000. And the amount that they're giving us is a small amount. But we appreciate that. Because it will finally recognize our services ... as active service in the armed forces of the United States."

I went to toys r us this morning with my son to buy a birthday present for a kid in his class. The boy is going to his first school bday party this afternoon. afro

I took a look at these sticks while we were at toys r us.  The core and handle are  good quality. The foam part is some really dense and solid fun noodle type of material, the whole thing is covered with and elastic flexible cloth sleeve.

I bought two (2)packs for a total of four sticks for 43 bucks tax included.

they also come with a cheep mesh carrying case.


They are fairly well balanced, and the core intrigues me, i have experimented with fun noodle foam b4 in the past and it tends to hold up ok if wrapped in duct tape so they way they have it packaged here makes me wonder if the noodle matterial its self will stand up.

I have made homemade soft sticks for years  of differing qualities and cost, I have experimented with kubo rattan centers, fiberglass bullwhip centers, pvc centers , and have settled on Action Flex off the members store here.  They DBMAA sticks have lasted me for almost 2/12 years of very hard abuse have super balance and are the closest thing to a real rattan stick in movement ... other than a real stick that I have ever found.  I have been VERY VERY VERY pleased with the quality of the DBMAA sticks and highly recommend them.

These toys R us sticks are much much much harder than a smack stick or an action flex stick,

Very dense and very penetrative due to the fun doodle foam.

I  initially would describe them as not very flexible,

My first thought is these would be good for stick grappling.  We will see if it snaps in half the first time you try to lock down a triangular stick choke or work a stick take down.

I will take them down to the gym on Monday night run through them and see if they wear out immediately, shatter, explode melt or otherwise immediately evaporate grin

Thoughts as a kids toy huh huh
the packaging is slick and this is marketed as a hit your buddy type of stick for kids is definitely way outside the box for a modern kids toy.
This thing definitely needs some type of head protection if you don't want your kids bell rung.

First impression is it has enough starch to take your kid to his knees if his buddy gives a full power strike to the head.  Definitely stout enough to blow up an ear drum sad

As a kids toy it seems like some 1950's type of fun definitely not the year 2000 I will sue you type of fun.  I am honestly supprised that toys r us stocks them.

I will post a real review soon and some pic's down in the gym.


Tony, thanks for the tip.

Here is the youtube posted description about the video your about to see.

Portuguese soldiers learn "Jogo do Pau" in order to use the rifle as a stick and to use the bayonet.

It is a very ancient Portuguese martial art.
It is recognized internationally as the most advanced martial art using sticks.
Can be used a very long stick or a short one.
Translated to English it is "stickfighting".
Translated literally to English the Portuguese the word "jogar" means "throwing" or "striking"; or "handling" which is actually the most accurate translation. And the word "pau" means "stick".

This is big box with a staff that I do.   I saw this and about s#!T an eggroll.   Talk about time machine stuff.

The one guy even has triangular foot work!!!!!!!!!!!

Tres cool!!!!!!!!!!!! afro

Max,

I'm not sure i follow you. huh

Are you saying that class or economic conditions are corelated with a propensity towards fighting in teen and pre teen boys?

or

Are you saying that children in the USA born in an improvised family have to "fight" on the street to subsist?  When you say "fight" are you saying fight as in fight club getting paid as a pugilist or larceny,robbery assult for profit type fight?

or

Are you making a social commentary about poor people  having different morals that predispose them to fighting?


or something else perhaps?

The reporting was very unbiased.

I appreciated the fact that it was very unsensational.

With this making the drudge and yahoo its just a matter of time b4 the talking heads on network/cable television pick up on this and begin bashing. evil


The best part of the whole thing for me was the garage environment.

I started in a garage about 13 years ago and love the mentality that garage/backyard training fosters.
