Power House Gym was a great location for the last public Gathering...  I look forward to seeing it there again. 

any more news on the April Private event???

There is a corral here on base we might be able to use in the future...  The ground is softer here also, mainly due to the large amount of Horse poop...LOL


I'll keep checking the other thread for April.

My med bag is good to go for that already :mrgreen: :-D

I agree.

It was a "different" venue, but then again we were fighting in horse crap a few months before.

My mask and gloves are still stained,  . . . poop color.  I also remember going back to the hotel one night, going into my office, wiping my rear end and getting more horse poo than my own.  Good times.

  I have a few prospects (one in particular) that will have a lot to offer in empty hand and weapons skills.
 He will probably make his debut at the September gathering.

Toronto?

Where in Toronto, I'm in Hamilton and haven't found anyone at all interested in stickfighting, (well some were interested until it came time to actually do it....).

-- More info please?

There is quite a group forming in Toronto. Rene Cocolo has brought Crafty up a couple of times and he has some guys trying it out. Also Tyler Morin, A Pekiti Tirsia instructor, has been to a couple of gatherings and DBMA seminars has hooked up with Rene. He will probably answer your question directly. We have a gathering-like event here in Montreal every once in a while that they come up to.

All is possible, even in Canada.

For the record, Tyler is also a DBMA Group Leader/Trainer and has trained with me privately in Switzerland as well as in the US.

I greatly enjoy the group that comes when Dog Rene hosts me and look forward to the next time.

I'll be there.  Last time I only fought with knives because I was there by myself and didn't want to get injured that far from home all alone.  This time I'll try to do something with sticks or some other weapons.

Justing bringing this to the top.

Sept 20th will be here before you know it.  If you plan on fighting at this one, please get your "Fighter Registration Form" in. 

http://dogbrothers.com/pages/gathering.html

Im looking forward to setting up some fights early.  Last time at Power House it was a huge turn out with lots of fighters.  I hope to get in at least 10 fights this time. 

I already have a cane match set with Dog Rene  :evil:

I want to also call out anyone that wishes to go against double sticks, staff and of course "Shock Knife".  I would also like to defend with double stick against staff.

Let the chatter begin...   :-D

I plan on coming and fighting @ the "Gathering" Sept 20th. This will be my first one. I've been a long time fan of DBMA. I'm comin from Portland, Oregon. Is there anyone else from Portland coming down? On the day of, how earlier should one get there? Also, how is fighting order decided? I understand that you pick your own fights but I was just wondering if people have back to back fights or what?

Thanks,
Ryan

I smell the fear in the air...  It's time to get your Fighter Registration in so that the real "Chatter" can begin.


*I know with EURO Gathering and the Canadian summer camp that this is on the back burner a bit....  Just bringing this to the top to keep it fresh. 

I am hearing a slight chatter in the distance and feeling excited for this one.  (Fairly Local for me = I can go!)


PS
Dog Rene, keep working that cane.   :wink:

Maybe a rattan cane would be more durable?

Here is my additional training to get ready for the Gathering next month:





An entire triaxle of firewood to cut, split and stack by the time I leave.  I estimate it to be around 8 cords.

I got pretty good at hitting the tire over the past year however I was promptly reminded how much different splitting wood is.  When you get half way through a log it no longer makes sense to pull the ax back out.  Instead, logic tells me to lift not only the ax but the ax with the log still attached and then try to split it . . . .  :roll:  Not sure it's the best way but definitely makes for a very interesting workout when you have no clue how many times you're actually going to swing the ax.
