Woof All:

We have just finished editing our newest DBMA DVD. It is titled "The Snaggletooth Variations" (TSV).

TSV builds upon "Combining Stick & Footwork". CSF was the first DVD for Dog Brothers Martial Arts and was the first DVD after our "Real Contact Stickfighting" series. As a fighter and as a teacher, it is my experience that most people do not move their feet well in good integration with their hitting during a fight. It is also my experience that most peole feel incredibly caucasian when going through the training necessary to achieve skills that will actually appear in the adrenal state. This is why CSF took a "basic building blocks" kind of approach.

TSV on the other hand, although it starts with the "basic power combo", which is something I regard as extremely important, practical and accessible to people relatively early on their path in popping their opponents' bubbles and cracking them in the head, has the bulk of its material aimed at intermediate and advanced practitioners and fighters. The concepts, material, and training progression will take some time for most people to absorb.

It is intensely bilateral, both in its footwork and its stickwork. It is both single stick and double stick-- but in the double stick, due to the progression, either stick can and does act as single stick.

Bilateralism is the foundation for 360 degree skills. It works with the "attacking block" concept (and if you have already worked with our "Attacking Blocks" DVD, this will help).

As it progresses, TSV "breaks the mirror". The "mirror" is our term for patterns whereing the right always meets the right, the left always meets the left, etc. Breaking the mirror means that left meets right or vice versa. Breaking the mirrior means that merges are part of the repertoire, not just meets.

In TSV I am assisted by Guro Lonely Dog, who as is always is the case, does an outstanding job.

Because there is a strong taste of Lameco in the material, the extras footage includes an interesting portion a lesson of Punong Guro Edgar Sulite training Salty Dog in my backyard.

The Adventure continues,
Guro Crafty

PS: Now we have to design the box cover.

The mention of 360 awareness made me think of this link a friend sent to me:
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7175997216454163399&q=gatka
as i understand it, the sikhs developed much of their fighting strategies from the need of a few to fight the many.

Gary:

I very much enjoyed meeting the two of you in person and working with you-- and the ride to Pittsburgh.   There's not many people with whom an extended conversation about the shift from demand side economics during Nixon-Ford-Carter to supply side economics under Regan-Bush takes place  cheesy 

As for that clip, our editor Night Owl, who is Filipino, found it.  It is from a movie about Lapu Lapu.   I'm watching my personal copy of the DVD right now and when I get to where we give credit for it I will post it here.

All the best to a new and less Caucausion you in your Snaggletooth Variations training grin

Have to admitt Crafty that conversation on shift from demand side economics during Nixon-Ford-Carter to supply side economics under Reagan and Bush. Was  a mind bender but I just told my self that your a former lawyer and proably a well trained one at that. I was a litte bit taken back about the way that you can start a conversation about a great many subject matters.
Cool  about the flim lapu lapu and the snagle tooth varations. nOw a bit off good news when I got home from the sem, I ran into a guy who i knew as a kidd and he lives out by you a good freind of my older sister who works in the fitness industry. He lives about 10 min to 15 min away fom you!!!
He says come on out and and stay with him, now my other student who is taking me out to front site in may is intersted in bankrolling my contuineing education in the DBMA !!!!!!! That is going to be a coversation on the way to fireing range in may after that trip trust me I will be joining up!!!! I just had to take care of a few things on my end for this to happen. I told my student that for me to do that I need to join and train with you more to ge to that point that i can present DBMA with your blessing so with a little luck and little skill you will be hearing and seeing me before next year thanks again Crafty. As allways after I type this off to the school so Tiffany and I can spar we are moving up a stick size today. grin
