I train in Western weaponry systems and in BJJ, i was wondering what you DB guys  use.

In BJJ the phases are free movement, clinch and ground.
I can't help but think perhaps there might be an extra phase for weaponry fighting. Perhaps an inner and outer clinch to  deal with the reality of the bind at the sword and the actual arm clinch and the differences between them.

Woof Mike:

In Dog Brothers Martial Arts we have 7 ranges:

1) Snake Range:  our name for what you apparently call "free movement". Our use of the term has nothing to do with the "snake disarms" of the FMA.

2)  Weapon Range:  Where the weapons strike each other.

3)  Largo Range:  Where one can strike the limb of the opponent with the weapon

4) Medio:  Where one can strike the head/body of the opponent with the weapon

5) Corto:  Where one can strike the head/body of the opponent with one's rear hand.

6) Clinch:

7) Ground:

These ranges are conceived of as being like links of a chain-- overlapping.

Woof Crafty Dog

Interesting, so you guys have them as overlapping ranges more like phases. unlike the more defined ranges of say the JKD 4 range theory.

Still hoping to see you come down to South Florida sometime CD.

Thanks for the info.
