Woof All:

I would like to announce the DBMA Summer 2014 Training Camp featuring “The Time Machine Game” to be held in the Hermosa Beach area of Los Angeles on July 26-27.

What is the Time Machine Game (TMG)?

TMG was born from a flash of insight that came to me while in I was in Bern in 2012 for the Dog Brothers Euro Gathering while I was working DBMA “abecedarios” (building block movements).  I bounced it off of Benji (Guro Lonely Dog) a bit and liked what I experienced-- and so I shared it at the mini-seminar I was teaching.   At the Gathering a couple of days later one of the fighters who had attended the seminar applied it repeatedly to very good effect.  Benji and I exchanged looks as he did so.

TMG excites me quite a bit—indeed it seems a culmination of several things I have been working on for several years by blending them together in a way where 2+2=5.   My confidence in this assessment was greatly boosted by my teacher’s response when I shared it with him:  “Marc, you’ve really got something there.  You should work that a lot.” 

And so I have!

Although TMG began as a double stick game, it has expanded beyond that to become a formidable “Kali Tudo”™ game as well-- truly it manifests “consistency across categories”!

What are the constituent elements of TMG?  (Warning!  Lots of DMBA terminology ahead!  Do not worry if you are unfamiliar with some or all of these terms—by the end of the Camp you will experience that their function is to help you understand and remember the material)

For double stick:

a)   Certain movements from our abecedarios
b)   The Four Rings of Merge Theory
c)   The single stick Kalimba Game 
d)   The single stick Bolo Game, especially Bolo Loop Two (BLT) and the Trident

As we bring this to Kali Tudo, we also bring to bear:

a)   Four Headed Snake
b)   Dracula Fang
c)   Prison Sewing Machine and the Prison Waltz (using 6/4 rhythm against 4/4 rhythm)
d)  The KT expression of the Kalimba Game
e)  The KT expression of the BLT Game

As I discussed in my previous Rambling Rumination http://dogbrothers.com/phpBB2/index.php?topic=2476.0  I am at a time in life where I am intensely focused on imparting to the next generation while I still can—and this Camp will be all about that.  So, whether you looking to improve you stick fighting, your MMA, and/or your street fighting, this camp is for you.  If you want to really bring Kali Tudo to bear in the cage, this camp is for you!  If you lack experience or confidence in your stick skills, do not worry, the teaching progression will be able to handle that.

July is a beautiful time of year in the Hermosa Beach area of Los Angeles.   We live in a beach community (about 8 miles south of the airport) and there is much to do.  Your wife/girlfriend/children will be glad if you bring them along—the area is quite agreeable, safe, and fun with lots of things to do while you train.  We will be glad to help you out with recommendations about where to stay, to eat, etc.

Cost of the camp is $250 for both days ($125 per day).  DMBA Association members and law enforcement get a 10% discount, active US military gets a 25% discount. We will have registration up on the catalog in the next few days.

The Adventure continues!

Every time I see a post about a new training camp or seminar that you're doing I can't help but wonder if beginners are welcome. Would a beginner be able to gain anything from this? Or would a beginner simply slow down the class and be viewed as something of an interloper?

I pride myelf on being able to teach many skill levels.

The important thing is that you know how to be a good training partner.

What are your experiences so far?

I've trained in various martial arts off and on pretty much my entire life. But as far as FMA goes I trained with Griffin for about four months 11 years ago and have just started again. I've also trained along with the original RCSF videos as well as Kali Tudo 1 and 2 and some of the videos from the second series. I think at the very least by then I should have made enough progress with Lester to be decently comfortable attending.
