Hi ALL,

This may be of interest, Dont let it happen top you...................
It takes a while but eventually gets to my point.

Has anyone heard of similar stories.


5 Years ago I stopped a intervened in stopping a alcohol/drug fueled thug from kicking his way through my neighbours front door and attacking his teenage daughters. After persuation failed the 'Hoody' kicked off and went for me with quite some intent.

I stopped him with a straight left punch which apparently fractured his cheekbone, (he was running at me).

He was arrested and all was well.

I noticed a small puncture wound on the little mcp knuckle of my hand. This was the size of a match head. This must have been from making contact with his incisor tooth. Knowing that the human mouth can be quite a haven for bacteria i washed the hand with hot water but really thought nothing of it.

However the next morning, 24 hours later,  i woke up, fell over, vomited violently, my hand had swollen up considerably in the 8 hours I had been to sleep. On admission to hospital I underwent surgery to ascertain what was up.

Blood cultures were taken to find out which of the 50 or so types of bacteria was causing the infection. The infection had necrotised into a 'Flesh eating disease', causing a similar effect to some snake venoms eating the tissue and flesh from the back of my hand. I was told that my hand may have to be amputated, if the infection got past elbow then further amputation, shoulder?...............

Several operations later to remove dead tissue from the back of my hand and to clean the infection, the strain was succesfully identified as Streptoccus A and anti-biotics kicked in.

Now with my left hand swollen up to 5 times its size and missing all the tissue on the back left the surgeons with a problem. A skin graft would stick to all the exposed tendons and bones, but luckily medical cover provided expert hand surgeon who took flap from my hip and attached it with microsurgery to join capillerys and arteries to maintain blood flow.

Due to the infection damaging my little finger I can currently not form a full fist, but with dilligent wall bag training developed quite an explosive palm strike, chops, rising palm and slaps.

Many reconstructive and further surgeries (18 so far) and physio over the last 5 years has proved difficult, but martial arts have helped a great deal in my recovery. I managed to continue my Wing Chun and took up learning stick fighting which has helped increse my grip strength.

Now to the main point of what I have learned from this experience.

1. If we focus on striking towards the eyes, not to take an opponents sight, but to obscure vision (even a failed strike towards the eyes will cause the untrained to flinch or the trained to react in some way)
Also striking towards the eyes really limits the opponents reaction as there is simply less to see.

2. Good targets are found around the eyes are the obvious as well as the nose, cheekbone, temples and the orbit of the eye.

3. Open hand strikes are much less susceptable to damageed and cut knuckles. The muscles and strong bones in the heel of the palm and edge of the
hand provide good natural weapons that can become fantastic with some regular hand conditioning.

Hello Ash,

The next confirmed dates for the East Grinstead TG are Sept 17th (sorry, I know this will clash for you, but I am unavailable for the 10th), October 8th, November 5th and  December 10th.

Dates and venues for London and Brighton will be confirmed shortly as I am looking at venues tommorrow.

It was great to meet up with Mike Dunnage whilst in Hermosa, i plan to contact him now that i am back.

I covered some stretching routines with GC on my trip which we will be using at our TG. It is about developing good posture, i think this is the Dog Yoga if I am not mistaken.


Kind Regards

Matt

Thankyou for your kind words,

I am very proud and thrilled to now be an Apprentice Instructor within DBMA, although I believe it is important to remain humble in these early days of my training. I train in DBMA because I enjoy it and will gladly help anyone who is interested in getting involved in this system and its concepts.

My plans over the next year is to open up monthly TG meets in Brighton, Essex, Sussex, Surrey and London.
I hope this will increase the DBMA members and long term group leaders and trainers in the UK to try and bridge the huge gap between myself and El Hig in Scotland.

With Guru Lonely coming over for seminars now is a good time to get involved

Regards

Matt
