I'm still working on getting to the gathering.  not going to register until I know that I can be there for sure.  Still training as if I'll be there.  To participate in a gathering will allow me to cross off one of the items on my martial arts bucket list.  If I can make it I'll be interested in single stick, double stick, and stick/knife.  I'm looking to fight as often as possible and not die or be disabled (mentally or physically).  btw, what time do festivities start and about when do they wrap up?

peace and respect

I was in Whole Foods yesterday and some granola hippie type offered me a sample of BBQ sauce.  As part of his pitch, he mentioned it was "vegan".

"Did you know that vegan is a word of Apache origin?" I asked.

No, he didn't.

"It means 'bad hunter'."

Went right over his head with nary a look back, but some woman walking by thought this quite humorous.

I don't care who you are that's funny.  Smiley

good basic article on nutrition:



Macronutrients: the Importance of Carbohydrate, Protein, and Fat

Macronutrients are nutrients that provide calories or energy. Nutrients are substances needed for growth, metabolism, and for other body functions. Since “macro” means large, macronutrients are nutrients needed in large amounts. There are three macronutrients:

While each of these macronutrients provides calories, the amount of calories that each one provides varies.

Carbohydrate provides 4 calories per gram.
Protein provides 4 calories per gram.
Fat provides 9 calories per gram.

This means that if you looked at the Nutrition Facts label of a product and it said 12 grams of carbohydrate, 0 grams of fat, and 0 grams of protein per serving, you would know that this food has about 48 calories per serving (12 grams carbohydrate multiplied by 4 calories for each gram of carbohydrate = 48 calories).

Besides carbohydrate, protein, and fat the only other substance that provides calories is alcohol. Alcohol provides 7 calories per gram. Alcohol, however, is not a macronutrient because we do not need it for survival.

Carbohydrates are the macronutrient that we need in the largest amounts. According to the Dietary Reference Intakes published by the USDA, 45% - 65% of calories should come from carbohydrate. We need this amount of carbohydrate because:

Carbohydrates are the body’s main source of fuel.
Carbohydrates are easily used by the body for energy.
All of the tissues and cells in our body can use glucose for energy.
Carbohydrates are needed for the central nervous system, the kidneys, the brain, the muscles (including the heart) to function properly.
Carbohydrates can be stored in the muscles and liver and later used for energy.
Carbohydrates are important in intestinal health and waste elimination.
Carbohydrates are mainly found in starchy foods (like grain and potatoes), fruits, milk, and yogurt. Other foods like vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds and cottage cheese contain carbohydrates, but in lesser amounts.
Fiber refers to certain types of carbohydrates that our body cannot digest. These carbohydrates pass through the intestinal tract intact and help to move waste out of the body. Diets that are low in fiber have been shown to cause problems such as constipation and hemorrhoids and to increase the risk for certain types of cancers such as colon cancer. Diets high in fiber; however, have been shown to decrease risks for heart disease, obesity, and they help lower cholesterol. Foods high in fiber include fruits, vegetables, and whole grain products.

According to the Dietary Reference Intakes published by the USDA 10% - 35% of calories should come from protein. Most Americans get plenty of protein, and easily meet this need by consuming a balanced diet. We need protein for:

Growth (especially important for children, teens, and pregnant women)
Tissue repair
Immune function
Making essential hormones and enzymes
Energy when carbohydrate is not available
Preserving lean muscle mass
Protein is found in meats, poultry, fish, meat substitutes, cheese, milk, nuts, legumes, and in smaller quantities in starchy foods and vegetables.

When we eat these types of foods, our body breaks down the protein that they contain into amino acids (the building blocks of proteins). Some amino acids are essential which means that we need to get them from our diet, and others are nonessential which means that our body can make them. Protein that comes from animal sources contains all of the essential amino acids that we need. Plant sources of protein, on the other hand, do not contain all of the essential amino acids.

Although fats have received a bad reputation for causing weight gain, some fat is essential for survival. According to the Dietary Reference Intakes published by the USDA 20% - 35% of calories should come from fat. We need this amount of fat for:

Normal growth and development
Energy (fat is the most concentrated source of energy)
Absorbing certain vitamins ( like vitamins A, D, E, K, and carotenoids)
Providing cushioning for the organs
Maintaining cell membranes
Providing taste, consistency, and stability to foods
Fat is found in meat, poultry, nuts, milk products, butters and margarines, oils, lard, fish, grain products and salad dressings. There are three main types of fat, saturated fat, unsaturated fat, and trans fat. Saturated fat (found in foods like meat, butter, lard, and cream) and trans fat (found in baked goods, snack foods, fried foods, and margarines) have been shown to increase your risk for heart disease. Replacing saturated and trans fat in your diet with unsaturated fat (found in foods like olive oil, avocados, nuts, and canola oil) has been shown decrease the risk of developing heart disease.

Although macronutrients are very important they are not the only things that we need for survival. Our bodies also need water (6-8 glasses a day) and micronutrients. Micronutrients are nutrients that our bodies need in smaller amounts, and include vitamins and minerals. (See the Vitamins and Minerals handout for more information).

my 13 year old son is planning on going out for JV football and track, so I decided to start training with him to prep him a bit.  Yesterday, I ran a mile with my sticks while he worked on shot put and then we ran 100 meter sprints together.  20 minutes of tiring.  just good basic cardio/aerobics.  sometimes the less fancy you get the better of you are.

becoming a dog brother has been on my MA bucket list for some time now.  Just gonna have to figure out how to get to the the gathering.  I consider the status of dog brother to easily be as significant as any belt ranking.

I'm wondering, is anyone planning on going out there from the Hemet area that might be interested in carpooling? As much as I want to I'm not going to be able to fight this year, got home from the in-laws to find my place had been robbed, but would love to at least be able to watch a few fights.

BTW what kind of crack head steals a fencing mask, some gloves, and a bunch of sticks?

ok, that's just plain odd.  I would feel a big hole in my chest if I lost my fight equipment.  it's just terrible strange.

WOW!! I hate it when stuff like this begins to make sense.  It certainly helps fit a number of facts into a nice neat puzzle making a chilling picture appear.  very scary.  I can explain the lone gunman psychological motivation easily enough (without referring to childhood trauma) but explaining the amount of money and advanced skills involved -- wow -- that's tough to explain without referring to a third party.  It's no nice and easy to think of this as a lone gunman creating chaos due to some type of mental illness or something but to consider that our own government would perpetrate such an act really punches one in the gut.  Sad that it makes so much sense.  It's also more rational than the lone, mentally ill gunman profile.

I just recently switched to a modified paleo diet with caloric restriction.  feeling better each day I'm on it.  I also just started back into conditioning work.  M, W, F I try to do weighted cardio that mimics the movements a person uses in stickfighting.  I do two minute rounds with a one minute rest for about 30 minutes then I walk/jog for another 20.  T, R, S, are stick training days: I try to spar or fight at least once per week and the other days I'm doing stick play drills and heavy bag work.  I also do shorinkan karate twice a week just for a change up as it is mostly cardio-aerobic in nature with no impact -- it's a nice active resting workout.  When I was training MMA my goals was always to be able to do five minute rounds, even though most amateur fights were three minute rounds because adrenaline tends to suck at least a minute of your conditioning.  It's also good to vary the length of your sparring and fighting rounds from between 30 sec to "start the clock let's see how long we can go".  This requires you to work different strategies and mindsets.

You have identified here something that in my opinion is very important-- the skill of maintaining striking range.

In DBMA we call this ST. FOOM which is an acronym for Stay The Fornicate Off Of Me.

crafty, that is awesome.  my training partner and I were working this just last night.  Have been spending a lot of time examining and studying gathering videos, then we work the footwork: solo baston, doble baston, knife, stick and knife.  One of the things I expect to learn/work at the gathering is to get my opponent to get into my striking range without striking me.  There's wonderfully fun psychology around all of this and you don't really "get it" until you've played "live".  Last night I didn't play so good at a couple of points as indicated by the bruise developing on my left ear.  Anyway, I'm continuing to try to make "it a go" as far as getting to the gathering.

one of the reasons I want to go to the gathering is to try various types of footwork structures against different opponents.  arnis de mano baston galang miyahara has a rather unique footwork structure and I want to test it against a variety of opponents.  Galang Miyahara also operates best at outer ranges of combat (weapons, largo, and some medio) and I want to see how it adapts to other distance structures.  Anyway, comments on footwork and distancing are always given lots of thought.

guro crafty,

the bouncer threw a punch and once that punch was responded to and the other guy was not in danger, then anything after that becomes felony assault as far as I understand, especially since there were two men striking the bouncer.  Once he died then it became murder or manslaughter.  If he died because he had a bad heart then I believe it's murder in the commission of a felony.  At least that's how I think it'd be in colorado.  of course I'm not an attorney so not completely sure.  My experience all comes from working in corrections and reading mittimuses (or is it mittimi?).

regardless it's a very sad situation.

15  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Murder Charge in Redondo Beach after fight kills bouncer on: July 13, 2012, 03:20:17 PM
wow!!  many factors going on here.  I find it interesting that they are trying to say the bouncer may have died from drugs or conditions caused by drugs but if he died during the beating that's considered death during the course of a felony and carries a life sentence -- at least in colorado.  self defense doesn't work in this situation because self defense only covers you until the situation is controlled to the reasonable person level.  doesn't matter who threw the first punch, if there's two on one then self defense looses credibility.  The bouncer on the other hand could've probably handled the situation better than throwing a punch but that would a variable we'll never really be able to understand.  interesting.

Lonely Dog's Workout 007 – Running

going for a run with 2 sticks will improve your stick skills and at the same time you work on your endurance!

Lonely dog

Nice!! this could really help me stay interested in treadmill training.  many creative options there that I'd not thought of.  You could jog on the treadmill and do similar work with doble daga or espada y daga.  very cool.

Lonely Dog's Workout 003 – Lift and Takedown

the topic of this workout is strength training in terms to lift your adversary for takedowns.
with techniques as the “High Double” or the “Cameltoe”, exercises for strong legs and explosive hips are key.

nice weighted cardio -- I like the small bag swings from side to side.

How does everyone prepare for the gathering? Personally, I've been working more cardio and strength than usual, and trying to put an edge on my ground work... though in reality, that's all coming with taking my normal training to the next level. Do you more seasoned fellas have a specific ritual in the month or two leading up to a gathering?

I'm doing a lot of cardio, partner work, and weighted training.  every other day I'm trying to do all of my basics with either dumb bells or aerobic exercise bars (weighted at 6 lbs a piece).  I try to be real creative in ways to integrate footwork with striking.  For instance, using weighted sticks strike and bounce a swiss fit ball and chase it around for 2 minute rounds.  very good cardio/footwork drill.  On my off days I'm trying to do just cardio using my regular fight sticks.  now if I could just quit eating ice cream, chips, and cookies . .... .

generally, what's holding me back is having a mortgage, a wife, and four kids.  it's tough to justify a plane ticket and a hotel, but I'm working on it.

I have actually had six in ring reality dog brothers style stickfights but the gathering is the mecca and i'll  get there eventually.  These fights were in the early 2000s and were part of nhb/mma cards.  we did three 2 minute rds.  some of the fights were underground out in the middle of field and these were truly anything goes.  broke a thumb, almost lost my left eye, it was more fun than a guy should have with a pair of sticks.  at the moment, I've got eric taimanglo in colorado springs who is gracious to give me a beating whenever I ask for it.  Yeah, I love the stickfighting.  I like to refer to it as play time for grown ups.

hang cool

my name is darrin coe and I've been training in arnis for 15 years or so.  I'm strongly considering coming to the gathering this year.  At least I've started more intense training just in case.  anyway, just wanted to say that it will be an honor and a privilege to face off with anyone at the gathering.  I consider every opponent I face as my teacher, so the more teachers the better Smiley

Ok, so I hope to see y'all there.

The video clip of sifu ricky miyahara is an awesome clip.  I trained with sifu/maestro miyahara before he passed away.  btw, striking the stick on the floor indicates a strike to the top of the foot or the achilles tendon.
