Woof I certainly would not argue with "wood carvers.org" and not being familiar with "basswood" I googled it and indeed it is a favorite among begining carvers.
It is a very bland looking wood,not very appealing to the eye, and quite boring from what I read it seems to be recommended to be painted for a finish.

Though still similar in usablity to white pine, I think the pine might still be a good choice esp when it comes to apperrance....
Here's a link that has lots of woods on them with description, and usablity and how recommende to be used, also a picture of the wood that can be enlarged.

P.S. even if you don't choose the walnut......its still worth a look for its beauty.
56  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Whittling/carving on: November 30, 2008, 11:51:30 AM
Woof Guro Crafty, I guess I would probably go with a pine rather than the Oak......both would be a white or light color. The pine will be the softest and easiest wood to work with........ For the dark pieces you could always use a dark stain or finish.......
The walnut sure is prety though.....and IMO workable.....maybe see how the "white set" goes first.
Hope this helps....

57  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Whittling/carving on: November 29, 2008, 06:03:05 PM
Woof Guro Crafty,  For pieces of a chess set, I would possibley suggest Walnut for the dark pieces and possible Oak for the light colored.

Both hard woods but I think workable ......Walnut is one of my favorites because of its Dark color....its also a little more expensive due to it being a little more rare these days.....but I think the amount needed for half a chess set would be reasonable......maybe able to get scrape from a cabinet maker?
Do they have such things in your "neck of the woods" cheesy

Woof Yomitche, I think C -Kaju dog says something important......
Quote
Listen to your heart.  Your going to be spending some time within the new style.  It's gotta fit you comfortably. 

If it were me I would choose the one that fits me best FIRST, then gravitate to the other as time and everything else allows.

You mention that the escrima inst. is listed as a Dog Brother inst. so your probably aware of the combining of the Krabi Krabong that mixes well within the Dog brothers system.

Hopefully you are practicing some of the Krabi stuff...which may lend to a quicker adaptation to the Muay thai.......

I personally love the stick and kick material, but, getting good at it with speed and ranges...esp in context to real fight conditions like in the gathering of the pack takes some real practice and training.
Though if the time and effort is put into it....my opinon is that fighter is a REAL force to be reckoned with (IMHO)
Hope my ramble helps........

Woof Thank you Guro Crafty and C-Kaju Dog for your support......
 With all the posting on this, I confess to have been feeling a sense of wrong doing of late.
(Never my intention, I never take the mat wanting to hurt someone)

I agree with Kaju -Dog in not wanting to see rules and restrictioins implemented. I like the 1 rule of "onley you are responsible for you" Of course as always "Friends at the end of the day!"

I truly did apply slow constant pressure, and do again admit I was surprised that Phil was able to fight off the tap as long as he did. (I was fully expecting a quick tap)

My hope is for Phil to have a quick and full recovery from any injurys sustained. He is definetly a game fighter....... (much respect )

Woof C-Kaju Dog, Iam glad you like the mag. I was hoping that you would.
It was also my honor to meet you, and to also watch your true warrior spirit in action as you took the mat on that bad wheel of yours.
Good health and a speedy recovery to you! It is my honor to be a part of the dog brothers tribe and to have warrior brothers like yourself. For you and all the dog brothers tribe I'am truly greatful!

I also want to howl at Dog Pound Davis, It was also great to see you, you looked in great shape and fought well(some very tough scraps) Keep fighting brother I'am greatful to you as you inspire me.....again Happy Birthday!

I'am also greatful to my fighters who displayed the fruit of their labors at the Gathering and to Don for giving those kind words on the gathering thread, I appreciate it....it has been good training with you and Dan.....
The adventure continues!
Thanks again Guro Crafty (guiding force) and pretty kitty for doing all that you do!

Woof, First things first.....Many thanks to Guro Crafty and Pretty Kitty for putting this on for us.
You guys are awesome! Also many thanks to all of you behind the scenes who do so much that we are not aware of.

Arkangel Phil, Sorry about your neck....but your a stuborn cuss! grin I thought it would be a easy tap after I got the stick across your throat, but you held out for a long time and some considerable pressure. I actually tried to be slow and continue to until you tapped. I was amazed at what it took to get you. shocked  Ofcourse your built like a Mac truck with a neck like a tree trunk.

I was/am so Honored to make candidate dog brother, The feeling swells inside of me. Though as Guide dog stated, I too had two first time fighters with me and I watched with pride and concern as they fought.
I was real proud of their performances. Dan and Don.....You guys did awesome!

I hearty howl to all the first time fighters.....all of you guys to a man were tough and fought with a great dog brother spirit! WELL DONE!!

So much I could type and so many to woof at......Bottom line a IMHO a Great Gathering and a great time!

Woof,  "Higher consciousness through harder contact"
I'am not against small pads, but lets face it you can walk through most shots even with the wrestling "sliders" .
Just my opinion, but I think pads are kind of like steriods......they give an advantage to those who do use them.
Then again it forces me to choose? weather to use the same advantage and wear the pads....or to take my chances and try to compete without them.

I would say pads plus a skilled fighter, is a serious advantage to be wary of.....
Its actually so much so, that I'am considering going out and buying some pads, before sunday.

Woof Guro Crafty, It is my understanding that a part of the idea of a gathering is that the fighters rely on their fighting skills to protect them. (not pads)

I have two first time fighters comming with me and have encouraged them to fight with little or no pads.
To my knowledge they will onley be wearing gloves.
It would be unfortunate (IMHO) for these first time fighters to end up fighting guys that are all padded up.
Is their any rule on this?

Woof Guro Crafty, I think a main stream insurance company can provide this insurance.
It is my understanding that we were looking to do a jr wrestling camp and needed similar insurance for the kids..... (the event was the wrestling camp)
It so happend that one of our high school wrestlers dad was a state farm insurance agent and he said he could provide the insurance..........
Might be a place to start anyway......

Woof Guide Dog, I read this this morning........Possibly something from the Bible to ponder for a moment. smiley


Proverbs 19
 1 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity
      Than one who is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
       2 Also it is not good for a soul to be without knowledge,
      And he sins who hastens with his feet.
       3 The foolishness of a man twists his way,
      And his heart frets against the LORD.
       4 Wealth makes many friends,
      But the poor is separated from his friend.
       5 A false witness will not go unpunished,
      And he who speaks lies will not escape.
       6 Many entreat the favor of the nobility,
      And every man is a friend to one who gives gifts.
       7 All the brothers of the poor hate him;
      How much more do his friends go far from him!
      He may pursue them with words, yet they abandon him.
       8 He who gets wisdom loves his own soul;
      He who keeps understanding will find good.
       9 A false witness will not go unpunished,
      And he who speaks lies shall perish.
       10 Luxury is not fitting for a fool,
      Much less for a servant to rule over princes.
       11 The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger,
      And his glory is to overlook a transgression.
       12 The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion,
      But his favor is like dew on the grass.
       13 A foolish son is the ruin of his father,
      And the contentions of a wife are a continual dripping.
       14 Houses and riches are an inheritance from fathers,
      But a prudent wife is from the LORD.

I honestly think you find very little scandal, charecter flaws or skeletons in his closet.......
Not that he's impeccable, but so far the biggest thing I've heard negative about him is that he has a bad temper undecided

I guess we have to let this thing play out. Obviously we will never see pre 2000 prices again.....
I do not believe that demand is driving the price......at least not at the rate we are seeing.

Jonobos, As you said context is everything. When, I orginally asked your instructer to roll with my college wrestler it was  for me , to be done in a way , so as to see how well a BJJ brown belt and a college wrestler both about the same size matched up against each other.  My idea was that this was to be done competitvly. I was refused.
Gruhn stepped up and said he would roll with my guy at the seminar. Gruhn suggested that they grapple to submission. I agreed, my guy says cool.
In context this is not really so much a friendly roll....you show me I'll show you.....type thingy.

I was just saying that I would not make the trip all the way out there just to watch 

Hopefully the reason you would come, would be for the Crafty dog Seminar.
After Jeff refused my offer to have him roll with my college wrestler, Gruhn stepped up and offered to, at the lunch break of the seminar.
I would also like to have time to grab some lunch........My main goal though is to attend the seminar, not about some off time training....we do that in our regular practices, as I'am sure you do as well.

You actually make mention of it in the other thread (ufc83 Gsp vs. serra)....remember where you mention letting the wrestlers submit you with their sloppy technique and neck cranks.

Anyway, maybe we'll see you at the seminar, or at a gathering sometime......
Thanks for not wanting to pick on a tired old man cheesy

Woof Jonobos, Well!! I'am at a loss.....Did you mean you want to roll around with me specificly?
My group is rather small actually, right now it consists of myself and three others two are brothers, they both have wrestling backgrounds.

Unknown at this point

Let me know when you make up your mind. As for rolling with me, well....I never say never, but I will be 48 in sept. and wrestling is real taxing on me. Would you feel good about beating up a tired old man? cheesy Like I said though, I never say never and we will be in training for the gathering by then so....as I said let me know when you make up your mind. The seminar is on a weekend if that helps.
Anyway.....

I don't train from the armchair though...

If you don't make the Crafty dog seminar........I will have myself and two fighters at the Aug. gathering of the pack......I would fight you there or you could fight one of my guys who is also a pretty solid wrestler.
Any plans for being at the gathering?

Woof, I was glad to see Wand , get the win. He really needed  it. Its hard to believe he's onley 31 seems hes been fighting a long time.

Machida in my opinion did just enough to win. I thought he ran alot and did no real damage until the knockdown in the 3rd round. He frustrated a much slower Ortiz, but also bored me..... did any one else hear the boos? Fighting like he did maybe smart in not taking much punishment, but he wont win over many fans or be a draw.....
Hes a good fighter and may some day be great but hes got a ways to go....IMHO....Tito is done in my opinion, he may say he wants to fight but I don't see it.

As for the wrestling vs bjj question... I guess that is for another day since I saw neither
We get to see that when Gruhn comes to Canton and rolls with my guy.....are you comming to watch Jonobos? cheesy

 Not  wrestling,Could have been Sherks mistake. Penn looked great moving in and out of Sherks range pumping a very sweet jab with an occasional right hand. reach was a definite advantage, but Penn has really good underated striking,
Penn showed no signs of gassing and looked to be flowing very well.....possibly Sherk should have pressured him more from the start , though that can be real dangerous as well.
I think the best fighter won.

Woof Pergrine, On the Spike programs you can see Sherk eating vitamins or whatever hes taking.
I agree that probably everyone is using supplements.
The thing is, Just my opinion but theres a lot of legal over the counter stuff out there that would in my opinon suffice....why take the illegal stuff esp when you know your going to get tested.....

Evidently Sherk presented a good enough case to at least get his suspension reduced from a year to six months...think that says something at least by way of doubt.

Like I said his levels were not that high, and I know steriod testing is somewhat suspect.
I don't know what the margin of error is, or how what Sherks natural nanderlone levels actually are....everyone is a little different......
Anyway.....I'am not arguing for him by any means.....he may very well have been using.
It will be intresting to take a look at him tonite.
One thing for sure......I'am looking forward to this fight. cool afro
I got to say I really like Bj....

Woof, Obviously, we can't say for sure weather or not he used roids. When he was at 170lbs. he looked the same as he does at 155 just a bigger version.

I have seen guys at weight gyms who have gotten off of roids and shrank up tremendously....I don't think your going to see this from SS....Besides steriods mostly help the muscle retain water...why would he want that when hes cutting weight?

Though from what I saw last night on spike he did look a little flat, muscular wise....meaning he did'nt look like his muscles were as pumped.
I'am not sure how he could make the claim he didn't know he was taking them......I certainly would'nt pop anything in my mouth without knowing what it was.....So that argument is Bogus IMHO.....

Regardless, I think at 155 your going to see the same Muscle shark and that his performance will be as always......RELENTLESS....

Actually his suspension was reduced from 1 year to six months. His levels of nanderlone were not really that high.
Normal people can have up to  6(whatever they measure it in) and his were a 12.
I THINK  Royce Gracie tested at something like 50 or 60

Woof, I like this card.....3 good match ups.
Guro Crafty...I posted  previously that I would not be suprised to see Machida beat Ortiz........I think If Ortiz gets him on the ground Ortiz wins. Its fun though to watch Machida because you can really see his Karate come out in his fights and he uses it quite effectivly. Pretty cool you got to work with him....

I was watching count down to UFC 84 last night and there was a clip of Sean Sherk taking his 18 month old son into a pee wee wrestling program......He commmented to his son:  "Don't go to your back, going to your back is for BJJ guys and bad wrestlers". grin wink
That comment kind of left an impression on me.......Ya think. cheesy

Listening to both guys, talk and how much it appears they really hate each other, this is going to really be fun to watch.
Hope Penn, is in shape.......

I also agree with Pergrine.....Penn is real flexiable and real hard to take down......yet a deep shot is a deep shot.....anyway........looking forward to this.

Woof, The Fight is tommorrow night.
As I stated Bj Penn is one of my favorite fighters and is probably the odds on fav. to win and I will not be at all suprised if he does.......
What I would like for everyone who watches the fight is to ........ Watch for the contrasting differences in the ground games of the two fighters.
I think this will be a real BJJ vs. wrestler match up, and I think the fight will show that.......time will tell.

If its a stand up fight I think Bj Penn wins........hes got some of the most underated stand up(Imho)
Should be a great fight, 155 is where Penn belongs I hope his cardio is up for it......Can't wait! cool

I also will not be suprised if Machida beats Ortiz........my guess Ortiz takes this to the ground in a hurry.

Gruhn.....my wrestler says he wants to stay around 170 this summer.......
