Woof All:

I am very pleased with the synergy of the DBMA Training Groups in the Midwest.

Here are some fotos of their most recent fight day:

Thank you Guro! This was a great event. The Midwest Tribe and guests did an amazing job. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and allowing us to share it with others. We hope to continue strengthening ourselves individually, as Packs, as the Midwest Tribe, and as the Dog Brothers Tribe. Woof!

It was a great fight day. Alot of new guys stepping out for the first time and they did well. Other regulars coming out to play also showed improved abilities.  Good fights, great spirit and a talented photographer as you can see. I think by Sept. the Midwest Tribe will be ready and present at the Open. DBIYCB - WOOF  grin

I am profoundly grateful to have one more day in the park with my friends and brothers.


I am equally grateful for the guidance from Guro Crafty and all of the Dogs, Candidates, and Full Dog Brothers who have helped us through the years.

Woof,

I'm grateful that this group is within reasonable driving distance from me and I'm looking forward to coming down to train as often as my schedule permits.

I saw a lot of skilled and dedicated practitioners, and a group energy that was very supportive of growth. You guys have a good thing going here. Glad I could take part.

Early this  morning we went to the  zen garden and sat zazen with greg and dane. We then went down to the park and did a pre-gathering fight day. Full speed, full power with the intention to hit the other guy VERY  hard.  No major injuries or trips to hospital.  Afterward we got back to the house and we realized greg had lost his wallet at some point, so we started to back track,  He had lost it when changing in the bathroom at the park, some of the folks from the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church where having a church potluck at the park and found it and held on to it until we back tracked and they were able to save his day,  Once again people reinforce to my soul that we are good and capable of sharing this planet and really are  watching out for each other.  Such a spiritual day,  Woof!!

What a great seminar we had in Chicago with Guro Marc Denny. He gave us a wonderful progression in the Bolo Game from stick to empty hands. He also demonstrated the importance of practicing a drill to develop the skill, then applying the information into functionality. For example, practicing Hubud and Lop Sao Cycle and applying them into Kali Tudo.

Outside of the seminar, it's always a pleasure to hang out with Guro. Conversation was either serious of nature, or playful. And seeing him is like picking up where we left off from his last visit.

Guro, thank you for trusting us and sharing your knowledge. I really appreciate you my friend. Woof!

Martial Arts is the Path, Mastery is the Goal. Mastery is a standard to hold yourself to. It is possible that Mastery may never be achieved. You may think you know, but variables may change what you know. You may work on a technique for years and continue to find ways in performing it better. The Martial Arts Path may also change. As we get older, and hopefully wiser, we begin to work more on what our bodies are capable of doing. Dealing with injuries will also affect the Martial Arts Path and the Mastery. So continue on the Path to achieve the Goal, and adapt as needed to always "Walk as a Warrior for All Your Days!"

January 11 from 12-2pm, I will be hosting a training on footwork and conditioning. The conditioning will include lite sparring with soft sticks. This event will take place at 1212 Capitol Dr. Unit 6, Addison, IL. 60101. It's the home of Windy City Pekiti-Tirsia Kali. My friend Paul Ingram is helping us with having our event there. This is a free event. For equipment you will need Lacrosse, Hockey, Boxing, and/or MMA gloves. Fencing Mask (or other head gear), mouthpiece, and groin protector. And of course, bring rattan and soft sticks. Perhaps we can go for lunch afterwards. This is a private training for the DBMA Midwest Training Groups, but if you are reading this, consider this a personal invitation from us to you. Hope to see you there. Woof!
