Woof Lynda et al:

We shot it today and it will air sometime in August. The show is called "Tail Dating" and is a less smutty and slutty version of "Blind Date".  Apparently it airs in the afternoon for the young teen audience and later for the stoners (this is the director's description).

A silly and fun time at the shoot.

Guro Crafty,

Please don't forget to let us know when "taildating" airs. I'm sure it will be cool. I just saw the pics in the picture gallery section.

I took a look to the mtv site and find following informations:


Taildaters

Taildaters is back with a 3rd season as a whole new crop of daters hop in the limo looking to "hook it up" or "crash and burn." As two strangers get to know each other, friends and family tag along behind in the RV watching their every move and paging their advice as the date progresses. Watch as they put everything on the line in season three of MTV's Taildaters.

Episode : Liz and Curtis, Daisy and Josh

'The Bald and The Beautiful'
On this date Liz and Curtis test their driving skills. Tune in to see if these two will make each other's wheels spin or if this date will simply run out of gas. You will have a blast when you join the Taildaters to watch this wild ride of a date.

'The BackSeat Boy and The Breathalyzer'
Daisy is a Latin firecracker looking for a manly man who's a little rough around the edges. Josh is a slick pretty boy with Back Street Boy style. Tune in to see what happens when this firecracker turns into a ticking time bomb! Join the Taildaters as they try to keep the heat under control.

Air Times:

Wednesday, Jul 23 @ 3:00 PM
Friday, Jul 25 @ 3:00 AM


Hope to get more informations....

Best Regards,

Mike

Woof All:

  Apparently the show was broadcast yesterday or today.  They didn't bring my copy to the shoot today so I still haven't seen it.  They SWEAR they will send it to me tomorrow  Roll Eyes  Dog Milt says he saw it and it was really weak-- 10 seconds wherein nothing was clear.

  The shoot today had its own energy.  The girl's silicone mounds were brighter than her and tighter than a drum.  For some reason Wink they planted her mike there and didn't bother giving me one.  They told me to just be sure to be close to her and to look at the mike when I was speaking.   Wink Wink Wink

I got more playful with the banter this time (Against the headlock: "Hit him in the big head, the little head, and then give him a cameltoe."   Apparently the folks in the trailer loved this.

I find out in a month when it airs.

Woof All:  

About 15-18 months ago I spent a day with Granada TV of the UK for a program scheduled to appear April 2003.  A couple of weeks ago I remembered about it and emailed them "WTF?" and they kindly sent me a copy of what they aired.

Apparently it was part of a series titled "Ultimate Warriors" and we were in the episode on Weapons.

Although (surprise!) the selection of fight footage tended to the brawling over the technical, overall I was happy with the piece-- I was pleasantly surprised at the extent that they allowed me to make some of the deeper points and the effort in the editing to bring variety to the material selected.  

Anyone in the UK/Europe who saw this and can comment?

Woof All:

We've recently gotten our hands on the article about us that appeared in Men's Fitness a few years ago.  

Here it is.

Woof,
Crafty Dog
==========================================

Iron John? Big wuss. Real me, say the Dog Brothers, beat the crap out of
each other with 30-inch clubs.

Underdog is flailing away at Dog Steve with a pair of 30-inch sticks before
the watchful eye of the Crafty Dog and his canine cohorts. "Stop backing
up!" Top Dog orders as Dog Steve charges forward, slashing his club at
Underdog, who is backpedaling furiously in an attempt to avoid massive head trauma, broken bones or a kidney-popping thrust into his bare body.

"Swing harder!" Crafty Dog barks as the two fighters crash together -
Underdog attempting to dig the end of his stick into his foe's exposed leg
even as Dog Steve tries to crush Underdog's larynx in a chokehold.

Imposing rattan sticks clack together, African drums beat a primal
counterpoint in the background, and the assembled crowd of 200 dog lovers woofs its approval. We're in the middle of a public park on a delightfully sunny California afternoon, watching two combatants trying to cave in each other's skulls. What could be better?

One man's cruelty to animals, after all, is another man's extreme sport. And things don't get much more extreme than Real Contact Stick-fighting, brought to you courtesy of the mangy Dog Brothers, a grassroots martial arts group whose biannual semipublic gatherings follow a Robert Bly kind of philosophy, bringing men together to rediscover their male energy through combat.

Except, as Crafty Dog puts it, "Bly was pussy-whipped. There isn't enough
testosterone in his stuff." Testosterone isn't a problem when fighting Dog
Brothers-style, except when you take a stick to the groin.

Sticking it out

In the bizarre m?lange of the martial arts world, stickfighting occupies a
particularly esoteric niche. For decades, it was practiced largely by
Filipinos, who originated and evolved the sport from their country's
traditional tribal warfare techniques. As any Filipino martial artist would
be proud to tell you, it was a stickfighter who offed Magellan when the
explorer made the mistake of visiting their islands on his world cruise.

But impaling people on sticks is a hard tourism sell. So in recent years the
Filipinos have modified their methods. The last public "death match" was
held in Hawaii in 1948. Since then, attempts have been made to turn
stickfighting into an internationally accepted martial art. Rules were drawn
up for competition, and the sport has gained a certain amount of acceptance in the United States, particularly in California. But tournament competition requires that fighters be heavily padded to prevent injury.

And if you're a Dog Brother, that just isn't any fun.

Years of the dog

The group's pedigree goes back to New York in the late 1970s, when a young student named Eric Knauss discovered Filipino stickfighting between classes at Columbia University. At 6[feet] 4[inches] and 215 pounds, Knauss had the size and instinct for combat. His instructors (Leo Gaje and Tom Bisio) trained him in hardcore stickfighting techniques and turned him loose. Knauss eventually moved to the West Coast, where he won numerous tournament championships and gained a reputation for insanity throughout California martial arts schools.

During what he calls his ronin, or wandering samurai phase, Knauss would
visit schools at random, humbly asking if they trained with weapons and
whether they'd like to do a little friendly sparring. Of course, his idea of
friendly sparring was to wear no protection save a light head guard, and to go at it until one man surrendered or was rendered senseless.

"I only had a few takers," Knauss says, still slightly surprised. "But there
were four or five who thought like I did in terms of getting to the core of
what really works in a fight. It wasn't until I met Marc Denny and he took
me to meet his teacher [the legendary Dan Inosanto] that we were really able to take root. That's how the Dog Brothers started."

But things didn't really get off the ground until 1988. Needing footage for
their first instructional video, a half-dozen combatants met for three days
of nonstop stickfighting in San Clemente, California's Rambless Park. Denny, a former attorney, showed up wearing cleats for traction on the grassy surface. Someone commented on what a crafty dog he was.

"I went home that night and picked up a Conan the Barbarian comic book," Denny says. "Conan was leading his band of mercenaries into battle, yelling, 'Come on, ye band of dog brothers!' It seemed like a natural name for us."

Denny, himself an Ivy League graduate and the group's guiding force,
remained the Crafty Dog. Knauss, the best fighter, was dubbed the Top Dog. There were Salty Dogs, Shark Dogs, Sled Dogs ... a whole litter of
stickfighting crazies who gained an underground cult following within the
martial arts world, though they avoided publicity for obvious legal and
practical reasons.

"Our mission has been to stay off the authorities' radar screens so we don't get shut down," Denny says.

Despite this, the Dog Brothers' videos, released through Panther
Productions, the world's largest distributor of martial arts videos, have
been wildly successful. The tapes blend instruction and fight footage and
have risen to No. 3 on the distributor's sales charts, mainly through word
of mouth.

And the word is that the Dog Brothers are some sick puppies.

Unchained melee

They have no rules in their matches except that fighters should remain
friends at the end of the day. Oh, yeah, and one more: Try not to put your opponents in the hospital.

The result of these "rules" is friendly, but rabidly intense, combat.

The scraps take place in a wide circle of grass in a quiet suburban park
within view of the ocean. The crowd is low-key and wildly diverse, a mix of tatted-up gangster lookalikes, a few groupies, serious martial artists,
yuppies young and old, towheaded little kids and their dogs. Stickfighting
the Dog Brothers way mixes grappling with technical stickwork; almost every match ends with both parties rolling around on the ground, looking to lock on a submission hold or rip off an opponent's protective mask and pound his face into Alpo.

The violence is incredible, but rarely personal. Fighters hug at the end of
their matches, and when one martial artist loses his composure and begins smashing his prone opponent with excessive vigor, several Dogs jump in to separate the two.

Restraint doesn't mean nonviolent, though. At the end of the group's May
gathering, the 20 participating fighters are covered with "stick hickeys" -
ugly red welts caused by rattan whacking flesh. Serious injuries have
occurred at past gatherings - a huge stick shot split one fighter's kneecap
in half in 1996 - but for the most part, fighters control themselves well
enough to prevent anyone from spending the night in the hospital.

When serious injuries occur, they're unusual and deeply regretted. Mike
Florimini, the Rain Dog, is still fighting despite his guilt over
kneecapping an opponent. "I was pretty upset by it," he says, "but we all
agree, it's what we can be in for."

Aggression lesson

As author Tom Wolfe observed about modern art, a martial art must have a "persuasive theory," a raison d'etre. In pursuit of a reason for
stickfighting's being, Denny incorporates a wide range of existential
justification into what could be construed as felonious assault with a
deadly weapon.

At the beginning of each gathering, he lectures the combatants on the
philosophical and anthropological implications of Real Contact
Stickfighting, quoting Nobel laureate Konrad Lorenz on the nature of
aggression.

"Any animal that has friendship has intraspecies aggression. The two go
hand-in-hand," Denny says. "Lorenz observed that there's an instinctual need to discharge this aggression. We do it in a ritual way."

Denny propounds the importance of this need for a form of ritual energy
discharge as he rails against the loss of traditional male-initiation rites
in modern American society. This could easily sound pompous, but the Dogs' sense of humor keeps things light. Consider their intellectual credo:
"Higher consciousness through harder contact."

"In a way, all we are is a bunch of kids meeting in the treehouse with our
nicknames and secret handshakes," Denny says. "Too many people in martial arts take themselves too seriously, anyway."

Ultimate dog fighting?

But others in the martial arts world take the Dog Brothers quite seriously.
Art Davie, former promoter of the Ultimate Fighting Championships, heard
about the group in 1995 and was interested in including a match on one of
his pay-per-view bloodfests. He went to the Dogs and watched some fights.

The baron of barbarism's reaction? "I thought these guys were stone crazy. They're beating each other with sticks!" What could be more telegenic?

"When I offered it to some cable outlets, they said, 'You want to show
what?"' Davie recalls. "I wanted to put it on TV, but we have enough trouble with bare-knuckle fights. All we need is to show 30 seconds of Eric Knauss beating on a guy like he's Rodney King and they'd run me out of town on a rail."

If the UFC is seen by some as a barbaric reversion to the age of Roman
gladiators, the Dog Brothers regress still further. Standing in a clearing
watching two men with sticks circle each other, a nearby percussionist
pounding out riffs on an African djembe drum, seems to transport you back in time: For a fleeting instant, you know what it was like 10,000 years ago, when sticks were the only weapon and the clan gathered to watch two warriors battle for land, a woman or tribal status.

Of course, the Dog Brothers could be seen as a bunch of macho lunatics -and they certainly are - but that perception would overlook something more vital. When they talk about stickfighting being a male-initiation rite in the traditional sense, a truly transforming experience, it's not some New Age con. The courage required to stand up to a 30-inch club (or sometimes two) whizzing at your head is a special commodity in modern society, where computer workstations are a bigger physical threat than a raiding tribe.

As the whipped author and poet Robert Bly pointed out in his book Iron John, the contemporary male seems to have lost contact with that sense of an inner wildman which keeps him strong yet avoids the pitfalls of macho cruelty. Though stickfighting probably isn't the most enlightened way of establishing inner strength, it's revealing that while stickfighting abides by neither rules nor referees, there are also no winners declared and no trophies awarded. Fighters show up merely to test themselves. For example, the Underdog is actually a 50-year-old, 145-pound supplicant named John Salter.

Salter, who was once owner of a medical-management company, picked up the sticks just three years ago without ever having been in a fistfight. Now, he's a combat fanatic.

"The idea is not to hurt people, but to prepare yourself on many levels. It
takes over your life, and it's a higher-quality life than I used to be
living. I will lose if I don't keep doing this," he says.

It's also telling that most of the crowd at the Dog Brothers' melees seems
able to connect with the group's philosophy. Like the fighters, the audience doesn't lust for blood - only for well-executed combat. In part to preserve this respectful atmosphere, the group is comfortable to stay underground.

"I think we've found our proper level," Denny says. "It would have been an experience to fight in the UFC, but the way we do it now feels right. If we fought in a competition, it would be hard to remain friends at the end of the day."

But for the voyeur, violence is often a drug. As people become inured to the bare-knuckle action of the UFC and its ilk, they'll eventually require a
stronger fix. Despite the resistance his tamer event has met from cable
providers, Davie insists that we'll eventually be able to tune in and see
weapons duels on television. One bare-knuckle television tournament, the
now-defunct World Combat Championships, wanted the Dog Brothers to compete and actually asked if they would fight without their head protection.

"I talked it over with Top Dog and Salty Dog," Denny says. "We said, 'If you can find the three of us opponents and meet our price, we'll do it. But it's going to be gory.'"

Ultimately, the WCC decided to pass, perhaps sensing that this was one idea best left to the dogs.

The DB section on Ultimate Warriors was excellent. As you said, it was nice that they gave you the opportunity to get across the ethos and thinking behind the gathering rather than focusing on the "violence".

Those of us who are married may be aware of a "reality TV for women" phenomenon wherein someone's home is fixed up "while they were out"; "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" and the like.

Well, Pappy Dog and Shaggy Dog's den of iniquity and pigpen is up for the fix up treatment on some minor cable show.

A very informative article indeed.  And as is evident in the attached quote, it is very clear the author has a clear view of what we are all about.

Hi Crafty,

I'm just worried about surviving the Gathering, but I'll think about it.  Most of the stuff we play with is kinda embarrassing, so I don't know if you want to have any part of that.  Though, I have learned that fighting with chairs is really dangerous.  The stakes created when chairs are smashed are frickin' dangerous.  I know to watch out for that stuff, but I wouldn't trust someone in a frenzy.  I think we were using the Ikea Terje for $12.99, as I have exhausted the supplies at Goodwill and Salvation Army.  At one store, a tough sales woman was unwilling to break a dining room set and sell me the two remaining chairs, even though I confessed I bought the first two chairs the previous week.

Ikea Terje

Perhaps the Ikea Bollo for $20 would be a better choice.  $40 for a chair fight.

I agree about the risks of the chairs.  I guess I was thinking more in terms of what looked like a hand held vacuum cleaner that I saw in one of those ciips.  IIRC you followed up nicely with a low kick.

Hi Marc,
 
Just a quick updater on the story we did. Aside from China, a quick search shows it caem out in Brunei, Zaire, Ireland, New Zealand and, jus today, in a photo spread in El Universal in Mexico.
 
It was also picked up by ABC and the International Herald Tribune.
 
I don't think I can remember a story that go such attention, at least not in a long while.

James Wilks, the Brit who won on TUF this week, has fought in 1-2 DB Gatherings.


Cool, US or Europe?

Well, I am going by what Dog Rog says and he is American-- but he did visit a Euro Gathering IIRC so I cannot say which with certainty.

Hey Matt, Thanks for the heads up about the show tonight. ITV is a free internet web TV broadcasting service. I'm thinking that it should air sometime today beetween
12:30pm -- 2:00pm pacific time, here in the U.S. depending on the time zone in the UK.  I wonder if we here in the U.S. will be able to watch the show. 
I sure hope so! undecided   

Here is the link for anyone who might be interested:

I just found this on a FAQ section on the ITV site.  Maybe someone will post the show on youtube! 
Can I watch ITV in another country?
Rights agreements mean that our ITV service is only available in the UK. Even if you are a citizen of the UK you cannot access the service from abroad.  Bummer.sad


 Is this the new show pilot?

No, it is night.  Our UK people think it will probably be the Nat Geo documentary.

That is what a friend of mine was saying last night. She figured it's the same show with a slight title change. Yep!

Hey Guys, it was the Nat Geo doc repackaged a bit.

This morning in the gym (we train before the BJJ open mat) there was quite a buzz coming off the BJJ guys! 

"THAT is what you guys do!!!"  grin

"Yep."  wink

Had a few e-mails about training already, I think it's going to be a busy week!

They probably cut the nunckaku parts out of the show. They are banned in the UK and they are not allowed to show them on TV or movies! The video game, Soul Blade, was edited for use in the UK because one of the characters used a nunchaku. The characters weapon was replaced with a three sectional staff. lol
