 grin grin  Great date...  Gives fighters time to recover hopefully, before going back to work.  For most they are moving into a four day weekend. 

Im getting excited about this one!   evil cool

This is hard for me to write...  But it must be done.  Some good and some bad news. 

Good:  I checked into my new comand here in Lemoore, CA.  and will be assigned to the Physical Therapy section to work and learn more about PT.

BAD:  Due to being the new kid on the block and also due to my current finances, I regret to have to withdraw myself from the list of fighters. 

I will be there in spirit and wish you all the very best.  I have tried to think of ways to get there and make it happen, just running out of time and ideas. 

Im not going to put my neck out there again and get my hopes up, but I will make it happen one day.  November Huh 
The move just took too much $$ out of us and I am in no position to push my luck at work right now.  Im getting reimbersed for some of the move expense but its gonna be a day late and a dollar short. 

Best of Luck to everyone...

458  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: June 2007 Gathering on: May 22, 2007, 08:50:55 AM
I have no doubt that Lynn is "up for the job".  In a real knife fight,
where strength and power are not as relevent as speed and
ability, Lynn might be able to take on all comers.  I don't know
the answer, each "solution" creates new problems, but to watch
people continue to kick their opponent when in a true knife fight they
wouldn't have a leg left, or they close and push and punch or actually
do a takedown after their arms, legs, neck etc. has been cut to ribbons
turns these fights into boxing/wrestling matches.  Unfortunately,
Lynn, or anyone slightly built is at a disadvantage at a Gathering,
yet in reality, the slightly built person has an advantage using the knife.
Perhaps in stick "grappling happens" although I wonder without a helmet
how many takedowns there would, but a knife is fatal - you don't charge
and take cut after cut and keep kicking and continue to close.  You're dead.

It is too bad good, subtle, deceptive and fast knife work cannot be rewarded.
Instead, the opponent after they are supposedly dead or disabled continues or initiates
physical harm through greater size or strength and is often is looked upon as the "winner". 
That is not reality.   Change the rules?

I agree with all of your points here JDN.  We've all seen and most study actual knife encounter clips (or should).  The fights that show repeated stabs  are often done by an attacker that has no clue about hitting the "V" spot (Vital insertion/slash).  I have gone back and forth with wooden knives, aluminum, hard/soft rubber training blades.  I always end up comming back to chalking the blades with two different colors and calling the fight after a quick engagement.  I like to assess the cuts and the one who has made the most vital or life threatening injury wins.  Sometimes I will let the fight continue on if there are no serious stabs or slashes (taking into consideration length of blade, size of player, location of injury)  Its good to have someone with a good sense of anatomy or medical training on hand that can do the assessment with a sense of what the real deal would have done. 

I have seen some nasty wounds and some minor incidents that caused serious long term damage.  (ie.  I have seen cuts to the tendons on the back of hand from breaking a window with a rifle that ended up causing the loss of gripping function in the hand for a long time.  I have seen men shot that just wanted to keep engaged in the fight. *situational)

If the fight continues after a non-life threatening injury, then I will add some restrictions that come into play.  Ie EBL (estimated blood loss), level of shock, airway compromise /SCW, loss of function in a limb, etc.)  These things need to be considered in keeping the play as real as possible.  I have grown to like the training blades that tend to get caught up on clothing (stick or catch), this causes the players to learn to keep a firm grip of the blade so they dont drop it when it hangs up on a jacket or pant leg, etc.

Anyway - gotta go - on the move again.... cool

Get her a pair of sticks.  I bought my wife a set a long time ago...  She doesnt work out like I do, but she gets the feel of not being left out.  On occasion she has been know to come swinging...   cool   Imagine a violent, angry woman with two sticks attacking you with no mercy and very unpredictable.  Part of my early motivation was learning how to defend EH vs Rolling Pin.   cry LOL

PS. I bought the sticks from this site around 1999-2000 - the old bundle of Ugly Sticks - she's still got em to this day.

This was long before I got a lap top and now I cant stay off the sites.  smiley

  Believe it or not I get asked this all the time.  You get the same smell with Durattan against rattan and with Durattan against Durattan unfortunately we lose the sweet smell of burning rattan  cry  One of the small trade offs . . .


Thanks for the reply...  Maybe an idea for a new Axe body spray...  "Wrath of the Rattan" body spray for Men... LOL   cheesy
462  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: I am new and have 3 questions. on: May 02, 2007, 09:45:05 AM

Durattan Q:  Do you stick get the sweet smell of burning rattan from these...  Call me strange but man that smell brings back some fond memories. tongue

Yeah,  the poll now shows that I am no longer the only first time Gathering fighter!  Im not alone...   
I can stop howling at the moon now. 

Thats right, you are not alone and neither am I.  grin

Just a question, what is everyones preference? Single, Double ... Staff??

I am leaning toward  "stick vs knife", "stick and knife vs whatever", stick vs stick with optional knife to be employed as  a secondary option at any point during the fight.   But Naturaly, I am looking forward the sticks vs sticks (single/double whatever).   Looking forward to the experience and getting some humble pie...   tongue

I found this worthy of everyones time...
25 yrs murder free...  "GUN TOWN USA"

Here's a taste - click the link below for the full story:

In March 1982, 25 years ago, the small town of Kennesaw – responding to a handgun ban in Morton Grove, Ill. – unanimously passed an ordinance requiring each head of household to own and maintain a gun. Since then, despite dire predictions of "Wild West" showdowns and increased violence and accidents, not a single resident has been involved in a fatal shooting – as a victim, attacker or defender.

This might be a dumb question and since it was taken from a comic book, I was just wondering about the accuracy of the sword that the Spartans used? I thought it looked pretty cool.

See here:

The Spartan sword kinda reminds me of the Kelly Worden Machete...  Not much, but when I saw 300 the machete came to mind right away   cool   (scroll down to find)
467  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: VIDEO CLIPS OF INTEREST on: April 04, 2007, 08:36:37 PM
I dont recall seeing this one listed.  Give it a a few seconds and then it picks up...  Worth the wait. afro

Please consider contributing as much as you like on this thread:

Thank you,

My bad Crafty...  Got off on a tangent here.  I am working on some good useful knowledge for the appropriate thread.

Razors to shave hair away from cuts would be a nice addition.   smiley


Got em - just forgot to list em...  Trauma shears, tweezers, scalpul, all the usual tools, eye patches, eye drops, anti-fungal creme, bacitracen, H.E.E.N.T. kit, dental lidocain, rubber malet & medical tape too.

See, now you got me thinking.  Im not trying to come across sarcastic, Im just pretty obsessive compulsive or "anal" (as my brotheren say) when it comes to being prepared.  Yep, all in one bag...  I might bring a couple other bags just in case.  cheesy 

It's realy not recomended to shave the area anymore...  Just trim the hair down close to the skin.  Shaving increases risk of infections (ie ingrown hairs during the healing stages) 

Good eye...  Thanks for catching that. cool
470  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: June 2007 Gathering on: March 14, 2007, 09:23:15 PM
  Would you mind listing the basics of your bag?  It would be cool to know what is on hand.


Hold on, here we go:

Thats just one of my bags...  

Oh yeah, band aids, steri strips and skin glue.

If you have any requests let me know... 

I would be happy to teach a quick Emergency Tactical Trauma Patient Assesment set...  I've been the Tactical Combat Casualty Care senior instructor for the last 2 years and have taught/certified over 1,000 MARINES.  Not to mention perfomed Combat Casualty care while serving in Iraq.  They even gave me some fancy chest candy for it... undecided

I enjoy helping others and love to teach, but not as much as I love to learn.  "Watch it, Learn it, Live it, Teach it"

Maybe a quick class before I get broken would be good....  Or if there is someone else qualified (I know I wont be the only medically trained there), introduce me to em and they can use my supplies as needed...  Goodtimes!

Oh, and I will be bringing Med training aids for Crafty. grin

hey Dean, if all goes well, my self and three others are coming. for one of them it will be the second time. the other two are noobs.

Hope to see you all there...  To me its all about meeting like minded people and learning from the experiences as a whole.  "Friends at the end of the day"
473  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / June 2007 Gathering on: March 10, 2007, 05:06:57 PM
As this will be my first DB's gathering and I plan on fighting, I am curious about the amount of experienced fighters that will be participating.  I know that this poll does not give one a true idea of a fighters background or experience.  However, I am curious about how many "Gathering of the pack" first timers plan on fighting.


474  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Emergency Tips and Emergency Medicine on: March 07, 2007, 06:20:34 PM
I got to thinking about this after conversing with C-Baltic Dog and hearing of the cut and infection that occured after one of his fights.  Incidently his hand was cut open by his opponents teeth.



1. With adequate irrigation and close attention to aseptic technique, prophylactic antibioticts are rarely required in most wounds.  (Time is your enemy here - irrigate ASAP dont wait!)

2.  Wounds requiring antibiotic prophylaxis;
a)  Wounds involving avascular tissue (open fratcures, tendon lacerations, open joints)
b)  Wounds with high risks of infection ( anterior tibia, grossly contaminated, extensive non-facial flaps, extensive through-and-through lip lacs)
c)  Mammalian and other animal bites


WOUND                                        FIRST CHOICE                             SECOND CHOICE

Open Fracture                                   cephalosporin                               erythromycin
Open Joint                                        or penicillinase-                             
Tendon Injury                                   resistant PCN                               
Non-oral, high risk areas
Oyster shucker injuries

Oral wounds                                       penicillin                                      erythromycin

Human bite                                        penicillin                                      erythromycin
Dog bite

Cat bite*                                            penicillin                                      tetracycline

        Other bites - may require investigation as to primary organism of concern and possible disease transmission.

        *Primary organism of concern in cat bite (Pastuella multocida)  has been found to be resistant to erythromycin.


a) Most effective if given early (within 3 hours of injury), not of much value if given after this
b) Loading dose:
-  500 mg - 1 gm by mouth if seen early
-  1 gm IV or IM if seen later:  IV provides better immediate coverage
c) Maintenance dose
-  1 gm by mouth per day for 3 days, with wound check on 2nd or 3rd day
-  Lab data shows 24hrs of antibiotic coverage sufficient
-  Tradition says 5 day course
-  Recommend 3 day course at 1 gm by mouth per day and return for wound check in 3 days


USE CLEAN/STERILE WATER OR NORMAL SALINE   (Field tip:  Normal Saline is just a sterile salt water solution.  You can take a small salt packet that is found in just about every fast food joint and mix (1) with 8-12 oz of your favorite bottled water, whalla...  NS that you can use to irrigate. 

Again, I advise you to see a DR for expert advise and proper wound care. 

Above are just some tips and guidlines that have been taught to me during my time as a Combat Medic and I do not take any responsibility for your actions in the case of an emergency...  This info can also be found on line in other forms.  Remeber the DB's code...  No Suing anyone, for any reason, anytime.   

Heres a great link for more on the subject:

Thank you whole heartedly for creating this thread...  I am a great believer in that, if we have the ability to cause injury, as "True Warriors" we should have some knowledge of how to heal.  We train, in hope that we can prolong our lives and the lives of our loved ones, through hands on or the use of projectiles to defend them.  The way I look at it...  Injuries and illness are just another form of attack from an outside source.

This thread (as I am suspect, you intended) gave me an itch to scratch.  I look forward to, and hope, others inject there input.  I am passionate about healing, but I am (IMHO) still a novice.  Lets share... 

I look forward to meeting you and the rest of the pack in June.   cool  There is no greater bond than that built by combat...


I do work with DR's every day and will soon be relocating to Naval Air Station Hospitol in Lemoore, CA.  As stated before, if I dont have an answer to a question...  I will take advantage of my many resources and we will find the knowledge togetherwink

476  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Emergency Tips and Emergency Medicine on: February 15, 2007, 08:35:07 PM
I love acronyms...  Here a quick easy one to remember, S>M>O>K>E

Remember this one when treating someone that goes into SHOCK!

Keep in mind there are 7 common types of shock.  I wont go into a long drawn out explanation here...  Look e'm up!

But you can apply SMOKE to all of them.

S=Shock - Your going to help someone in shock.

M=Maintain a good airway. 

O=Oxygen.  I know most of us dont carry oxygen with us so you can replace this with Outside if you like.  Imagine someone in a smoke filled house...  Best medicine, get them outside away from the smoke and get them some fresh air. ( = more oxygenated air)

K=Keep them warm. 

E=Elevate the victims legs and or head (unless contraindicated).  Help keep the heart from having to work too hard. 

477  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Emergency Tips and Emergency Medicine on: February 15, 2007, 07:57:37 PM
Tourniquet:  By definition should completely stop the flow of blood from an artery. 

I have seen many a "Tourniquet" that in the wrong hands fails to do just that...  In addition not everyone knows how to be sure that the blood flow has been stopped. 

Lets be practical here...  (A quick story)  In the not so distant past all the best combat "medics" were pooled together during an evolution that focused on the design of a new and improved, no ship, "TOURNIQUET" that was marketable and functionable.  So, several groups went off that night to brainstorm and come up with this new and improved tourniquet that must meet the definition "STOP THE BLEEDING" once in place.  All varieties of medics were present, from all branches of the military and special forces...  Long story short,  most spent all night comming up with various ideas...  But, then there was the "Navy SEAL Corpsman".  "DOC" and his team left the meeting, went straight over the one of the trucks, took one of the rachet tie downs and modified it to an appropriate length, then with the mission accomplished went straight to the nearest bar. 

Point being...  Keep it simple and take care of business!

Many of us have tie downs already.  If not, you can go out to "Wally World" and buy a pack of 5-10 for a minimal fee, compared to the life you may save by using it in time of need. 

Here are some things about "T's" you need to remember;

1)  The strap should be no less than a prefered 2 inches wide.  (This will help to avoid possible nerve damage)
2)  Place the "T"  2 inches (two fingers) above the wound site (between the heart and the wound).
3)  Never place the "T" over a joint.
4)  No matter whether applying an ACE bandage, Pressure dressing or Tourniquet...  Always, check "PMS" (Pulse, Motor skills - ie. can you wiggle your fingers/toes and Sensation - ie "can you tell me what finger/toe I am touching?") distal to the wound site. 

The biggest argument I hear, when I get a student fresh out of EMT school is, "Tourniquets, are only used as a LAST RESORT!"
I wont tell you what to do here...  Like most things, "Situation" will dictate.   But ponder this...  Crafty, you will appreciate this point.

Millions of people undergo surgery every day...  Sugeons control the excess bleeding by use of several methods...  One of the most traditional, was to apply a touriquet on the limb, above the site to be worked on.  Truth is, in many cases a Tourniquet can stay in place for 4-6 hrs before permanent damage to that limb is certain.  Plus, you can always loosen it just a bit to allow some blood flow to the extremity every 2-3 hrs.  The most import thing is making the "Life over Limb" decision. 

Note the time that the "T" was applied - and pass that knowledge onto the DR as soon as possible. 

Research this and make your own assesments...   
Q:  How long can you hold your breath or go without breathing?

Q:  How long does it take to bleed out from a major arterial bleed?

We all hear about the good old ABC's of first aid.  (Good stuff)  One I like to share for Combat Life Saving scenarios is, "Stop the bleeding, restrore the breathing"...  It shouldn't take you but 30 seconds at the most to apply a "T" with practice and remember you can always loosen it.  Just dont take it off.  Let a trained DR do that. 

Make your own situational call...   But, if it's me...  I would rather take the few seconds to slap on a "T" before starting rescue breathing.  If you have help - share the duties...  Dont get tunnel vision...

But hey???...  Dont take my word for it...  I am not a doctor.  I advise you to do your own research... 
I am just sharing some of the nuggets that I have been taught by DR's and key things that I KNOW from first hand experience WORK!


I can think of many a knife technique that includes cutting arteries....  and I have yet to meet a person that NEVER gets cuts.  Put the odds of survival in your favor.

More to come later...

A simple but valuable tool for your EM kit,


Yep, the same stuff you use in the kitchen to keep your food freshly sealed. 

I carried it in Iraq and used it.  It's light weight, cheap and easy to carry.  What do I use it for?   SEVERE BURNS!

On a severe burn the victim will have pain on the outer layers 1st and 2nd degree zones.  3rd degree area has burned the nerve endings and is not painfull at the center but the outer areas will be very painfull.  A couple major concerns here are infection and dehydration that can and often add to the level and type of shock the victim is in. 

Seran wrap will: 
1)  Keep out dirt and infection pretty well.
2)  Keep in moisture and help slow the dehydration process.
3)  Keeps out wind.   Think of how you feel in the wind when you have a bad sun burn.  You get chills, and it can hurt too. 

Keep the body temp regulated and help prevent infection!   Its not the cure all, but a great tool that is even used by Navy Seal Corpsmen.

more tips to come...   Chew on this for now.

Woof All:

A tip learned in the military a few years back to help stop serious bleeding:

Feminine napkins and tampons, which are super absorbent, are great for helping to control bleeding wounds. Tampons fit bullet wounds (some better than others) pretty well and swell to help stop bleeding. Pads are pretty much, if not exactly the same thing as battle bandages.

I have heard this before.  However, this post could be missleading.  Without the aid of, either "Constant Direct Pressure" or proper application of a "Tourniquet", the bleeding has not been stopped.  Pardon my twisted explanation here...  Think of how much a female can bleed without dying, each month.  Tampons and pads dont stop the bleeding, they just hide the mess.   tongue  undecided)

When wounded in battle it's a different situation.  Point being (back on track now), a tampon or pad can "absorb" a lot of blood.  THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU HAVE STOPPED SERIOUS BLEEDING!  All you have done is fool yourself into believing that the bleeding has stopped.  Be carefull with this one...

Sucking wounds can also sometimes be helped by the plastic wrapper of a cigarette pack or a latex glove. Even a pat down glove or anything you can fit over the sucking wound to stop it from sucking.


Not a bad tip...  I would like to expand on this a bit.   
The most frequently missed step, when someone deals with a "Sucking Chest Wound", is looking for the exit wound.  You may find one, you may not...  But, you had better look for it.  If you find an exit wound, and it is above the abdomin but below the clavical, treat it the same. 

An occlusive dressing (air tight seal) is not only used for the "Sucking Chest Wound" but also for severe to moderate bleeding on the neck area. 
The main difference between the Chest and Neck wound.  The occlusive dressing on the chest needs to be taped on only three sides.  This allows air to escape from the chest, relieving pressure and allowing the lungs to expand.   Put the wounded person in a position of comfort once treated. 

A simple technique to learn, in order to help the wounded person breath, is called a "Needle Thoracentisis".  To learn more see the attached link below.

Then its just the uncertainty of inactive reserve.

The latest news I have heard, is that they are currently doing an involuntary recall, at least for the Corpsmen.? The way they are selecting them;? they are going after the guys that have been inactive for at least one year, but still have at least one year left in inactive status before their contract is up.? Im not sure about the Marines but I would suspect it is the same.

Doesn't make much sense to me...? You end your enlisted active service, decompress a bit and start getting your life together (ie job, familly, etc.), then they throw a wrench back in the mix and reactivate you?Huh Militarty Logic - LOL?

Also we currently have NCS "National Call to Service" Corpsmen.? They sign 2 years active duty contracts.? After boot camp, "A" school (Hospital Corps School) then FMSS (Field Medical Service School) they get sent straight to division then service 15 months with division.? They go to combat then go onto inactive status thinking all is done....? ?Psyc!? Phone rings and now you are getting sent again.? Sad part is when the recruiter signs them up as NCS they dont get the full benefits.? No Mongomery GI Bill, etc.? Just wham bam thank you ma'am.

Anyone thinking of going NCS should really look into it long and hard before signing.? (IMHO) Better off just going for the whole package.

In addition I feel it is dangerous for the well being of the Marines we serve with.? Our NCS guys get sent straight to the line companies.? With only 15 months to spend with us, there is no reason to send them for additional training or put them in a lead position (ie Senior Line Co. Corpsman, Sick Call, Admin. Training or Supply) no time to get to go to OEMS (Operational Emergency Medical Skills training or EMT school)....? Doesn't really set anyone up for success IMHO (Marines or Sailors).? In the long run, I feel  we will all suffer from this program.

Well written and well to the point...? I was in Al Anbar province for 7 months in 2005,? as a Corpsman attached to MCD "Mine Clearing Detachment Quick Reaction Force" as well as spending countless hours attached to the Security Platoon and in the STP/BAS trying to help the wounded...? I have walked and lead many convoys around that area.? I remember one of our Iraqi troops that went home on liberty one weekend and did not return.? As the story goes, he went through a (VCP) vehicle check point and showed his ID.? He was shot on sight.? It was a false check point ran by insugents.? The Iraqi people are fighting for their freedom right along side of us and also making the ultimate sacrifices for hopes of a better future.? I have listened to many stories from the ING and ISF about their personal experiences with Saddam and it is far worse than that which is shared with the media.

I am not going to steal the thunder here but thanks for sharing and keeping it real.? I expect in time there will be a lot that comes out in the wash.? I know I have a lot that will never be discussed.....? And there are alot of videos that will never be shared for years to come.? All in due time.? What has hit the press is nothing compared to what is out there, in our troops personal collections.?

God Speed!

Not everywhere has porta Johns...  In Husaybah at camp Gannon we had good old fashoined burn barrels and your shower for months came by the way of poking holes in water bottles and rinsing off.  One day my Medical Officer was walking to go poop.  He forgot his wet wipes (Thank God), he went back to ge them.  As he was aproaching it for the second time it was blown up by a mortar round.  Talk about divine intervention... LOL

"Absorb what is useful, disregard that which is useless"

I believe the above quote needs to be pondered deaply....? ?(IMHO) This is a great ideal to have, but be cautious at what level you choose to discard knowlegde you have obtained.? At what level do we feel we are ready to make such decisions?? (Maybe we are just doing it wrong).? Throughout my journey I have often been shown a (T3) "Tool, Tactic or Technique", that seemed useless during my early years.? However, much later I find myself educated with a better understanding of the core or root of the T3.? Patience and keeping an open mind while progresively maturing within the style.? "Never forget your roots".? Respect what has been proven in combat and never rely on "In Theory" knowledge.? Much can be lost in translation and as Crafty has often pointed out, there is much that is held close to heart (By the "Grandfathers") - until one is found worthy of such treasures.?

My humble opinion...? Stay Progressive and Never Forget Your Roots!

Woof Dean:

What you suggest is a perfectly valid way to go.

Our reasons for doing it as we do are:

1)  We seek to come closer to the time pressures of street situations i.e. with limited time one has to explode faster and harder to finalize.  In our opinion, to have no time limit tends to shift things towards time consuming tactics and strategy and a premium on conditioning.

2) To go until someone loses, shifts the meaning of the experience towards young male hierarchical competition and away from our tribal values of preparing each other to stand together to defend our land, women and children.  

Please allow me to flesh this out.  In our experience, there are many moments in a fight when lasting damage can be imposed.  If for example a fighter with superior stick skills is in a position to badly drop someone with superior grappling skills as the latter attempts to close, rules such as you propose would, in our opinion, provoke ego driven temptations to be sure to "win" the fight now and avoid being "defeated" later.  Most of us have had more than one moment where we could have permanently dimished someone else's IQ or lastingly damaged his body.  My concern for the approach you suggest is that you make it hard to operate within the code of "No judges, no referees, no trophies, be friends at the end of the day".  

3)  Our approach also allows each fighter to experience several fights against various opponents and weapons.  This allows for more experimentation and more growth.

Off the top of my head, these are the points which occur to me.

The Adventure continues,

Makes sense to me - Thank you for the enlightenment.  I will work that angle in tomorows class.

With Respect,

Why not go until submission or until the other guy quits.  A partner could throw in the towel or have a safe word to say when he/she has had enough.  Just a question.

Just wanted to share...  Training is going well here in NC, USMC Base Camp Lejeune, Harper Kajukenbo.  In our time of preparing for the realities of combat we have been pushing our training harder all the time.  I think we are almost there.  During stickfights among our Ohana here last weekend many left with bruises and a higher consciousness for the realities of mortal combat.  One left with a broken arm that is now in a full arm cast.  Injuries will recover before next deployment.  I can't remember who said it first,
"The More We Sweat (Hurt & Bleed  evil ) In Training, The Less We Bleed (or Die cry ) In Combat!"

Please Support Our Troops (all we ask for is your love for our desire to preserve OUR way of life.)

GM Estallila is great and I have enjoyed learning from him on several occasions also.  Warriors of Righteousness!

Also in Fresno you will find Prof. Greg Harper - head security at the Red Room near Shaw and first.  Very knowledgable and very realistic.  I have had the bruises and broken bones to prove it...LOL
He is Sijo Emperado's personal body guard.  

In Oakhust check out Master Hyde at Oakjurst Martial Arts Academy - he has a variety of knowledge in FMA.  From Guru Cordoncillio as well as a few others.  They have set nights for just FMA type training as well as Tang Soo Do and Kajukenbo.  He is personal friends with all three of the above mentioned and is a valuable asset to the MA community.  I used to teach there and had the pleasure of working with the sticks with them a few times also.  They on occasion have seminars and stick fighting events.

Train your weakness into strenghts through consistant practice and polish your strengths.  You will find balance through persistance.  

Focus on using your whole body throughout each strike to break the discomfort with foot work then mix it up a bit...  When you strike with R hand power without stepping through with the stroke of the weapon you restrict the natural follow through power of the strike.  With a longer weapon the main idea is to follow through with the power stroke and be sure that your foot work is naturally clearing the path of the weapon alowing for natural flow to the follow on strikes.  Of course this is just the beginning and with persistant practice the weapon should just naturally become nothing more than an extension of your body. wink
