Actually Guro, I would love to train with you. Do you have openings? I could learn a lot. I live in Downtown L.A. Hermosa Beach isn't that far. May I?

Would like to start a Dog Bros grass roots movement (or desert roots) in Arizona.  Looking for like minded people to train with. All I have to offer is my own blood, sweat and tears.

Thanks Crafty Dog for taking the time to speak with me.  I appreciate the tips and pointers on recruiting training partners.  I would love for the Arizona cactus roots movement to grow into a DBMA training group.  As soon as I am able I will head out to LA to train with you.  I dont care what you say man, you are a ROCKSTAR!

Checking to see who is currently active in the Tacoma, Olympia, Seattle area in Washington.  Mixed background.  Looking to revive some skills and hang with some guys that appreciate the fine art of stick-wielding.

Top Dog is in the Houston area if ever you get out that way.

My knowledge of TX geography is quite limited, but we have Dog Rick in New Braunfels (see the thread on this page about the upcoming seminar there).

Gus Reina was at Fort Hood but is downrange right now.

If I am forgetting anyone else, my apologies and please feel free chime in.

Hello all-

I'm based in Dublin, Ireland, and have had no previous experience with DBMA or indeed much in the way of FMA. My background is mainly in BJJ (blue belt), and some muay thai and boxing for stand-up. Lately I have decided to make a concerted effort to learn more about stickfighting. I am ASP certified and have done the odd single day of training at FMA seminars / classes when the opportunity arose, but that is essentially it.

I have a particular training partner that I meet once a week with who I spar with (outside of other training). He has given the thumbs up to the idea of exploring some stickfighting and learning as we go, since it is something he has wanted to try also.

I don't think either of us are overly afraid of contact, but what is the appropriate / recommended progression in terms of training gear for guys like us so that we do not ruin this for ourselves?

If we begin with action flex or another padded stick what hand, head or eye protection is suggested, if any? Down the line I would ideally like to see us using sticks, gloves and appropriate headgear but I don't want to count our chickens before they hatch, either.

I have the 'original series' volume 1 and 2 and hope to make it over to a DBMA seminar somewhere in the new year. Narrowly missed Guro Lonely in Glasgow last year.

Dunno where you're doing BJJ mate, but if you know a blue belt called Stephen R have a word with him.

Lazora Talaya and Franciso Gomez are hosting lonely dog in Spain in early March I think. Top blokes and Spain is warmer than Glasgae but lacks in the deep fried food dept  cheesy

Fencing helmets and KIL gloves will serve you well no matter what you spar with, maybe elbow pads too.  Shipping for padded sticks to Ireland is a pain, I like the ATF and Lameco sticks personally. Not a fan of the actionflex ones I've used..too flexible, clues in the name I guess.

Thanks for the reply...

I don't think I know who that Stephen R. is ... I haven't come across anyone crosstraining in stickwork / FMA but then again as I said there's a lot of people out there doing BJJ at the moment and it's certainly possible.

I thought fencing helmets alright but wasn't sure if they were overkill initially - sounds like they'd be a good investment either way.

I actually made it down to Molesworth st. to train with you guys one night but to be honest the timing doesn't suit and I'll hold my hands up and admit I didn't have the patience for the drills (I know, I know...).

Stephen R trains/trained out in IP, believe its closed now

Good drills can be badly taught   cheesy.  Send me a PM in the new year, might be able to sort you a test drive of some of the options out there gear wise

Hello All,

I'm in the Metro-Detroit area and looking for people to train with. We have an informal training group going right now, but it's all beginners that I'm teaching some basics to.

I looked at the instructor list and couldn't find anyone in Michigan so if you can point me to someone that teaches in my area, that would be great.

If not, my plan is to start buying videos and introducing dog brothers techniques into our group (with proper credit given to DBMA, of course).

I'm also going to be sending in a membership application here in a few days and plan on getting to a gathering next year (sooner if there's one on my side of the country).

A couple of my students will be going home to southside Chicago for break and would like to get some training in while they're there.  Anyone within reasonable distance?  They will probably be taking the train.  I mentioned Pete in Downers Grove, but I think that's a little far for them.
