Woof Gentlemen:

I am far less orderly and organized than my Swiss DB Lonely Dog  embarassed This is the perfect place to bring this to my attention.  I am in Bloomington IL for a seminar at the moment, but will attend to this when I get back to LA.

Woof All:

Those of us in the Hermosa Clan will remember Dog Tim Nelson, a.k.a. "The Hobbit".    Dog Tim lives an unusually close to nature life-- even when he was here in LA he was an , , , "urban camper" whose only transportation was his bicycle-- which he rode barefoot.  In LA this is quite a trick.  To come train in the backyard group or at the Inosanto Academy, he would bicycle all the way from his , , , campsite somewhere around Koreatown, train, go to the Dune with us and smoke us on the Dune, then bicycle home.  Dog Tim had the most amazing feet-- kind of like you would imagine a Cro-magnon man to have, hence his nickname "the Hobbit".

Tim's life took him elsewhere, but the guys continue to ask me from time to time if I have heard from him.  I just got an email with him and take the liberty of sharing it here with the Tribe.

TAC,
CD
====================

Hi Marc:

This Tim Nelson, the pony tailed big footed bearded guy of several years back who trained with you.

Well, just dropping a line; I am living in southern Oregon in the mountains with other people, living under tarps or tipis, baby on the way, girlfriend has a 5 yearold, live with other parents and mothers, we freerange goats in the forest, milk them and pack them. Moving more and more towards a nomadic life foraging and hunting and 'pastoraling'.

I was recently at a barter fair and was watching a 4 year old playing with a stick with an older man and the boys movement looked so natural and perfect to my eye, perfect in slow 4 year old form. and I wondered if you got some of your simple but profound ideas of movement from children that were naturals.

Health is good, bout with lyme, a doosy, rockin now. That's a whole world with info, trapping, hunting, tracking, are my main areas of passion other than the thousand things that go into parenthood, woods life, community life, spouse, they put bread/meat on the table and satisfy a similiar need the fighting may have, I pretty much wrestle who I can, and sport knife spar anyone I can too. using the video clips of the knife stuff I played with a large framed friend with an unusual fast and slow twitch muscle combo with hi coordination and I found it very neat stuff.

Well thats enuf, I bet you get lotsa emails, I wish you the best,
Tim

Mega props to him for living off the grid.  While I don't think I could do it full time, it's my dream to get out and do something similar.  I kinda want to do it on my own though.

Sir,

Does that include "Candidate" DB's also or just full Dogs?

Guro,

So I can get it straight in my head please let me know if I am following correctly:

Tribe - (insert name here) Dog

Pack - (insert name here) Dog, C-Dog's & Dogs

DBMAA Members - all of the above plus people who are on this forum.

Is this correct?

Umm , , , no grin

Dogs, Candidate Dog Brothers, and Dog Brothers are all members of the Tribe a.k.a. the Pack.  The Tribe has many clans e.g. I head up the Hermosa Beach Clan, Lonely Dog the Swiss Clan, Dogzilla the Hawaii Clan, Pappy Dog the No Ho (North Hollywood) Clan, etc, but many members of the Tribe do not belong to any clan at all.

"Tribe" and "Pack" are used interchangeably.

No money is involved with the Dog Brothers Tribe.

I am the Founder and Head Instructor of Dog Brothers Martial Arts.  DBMA does NOT = The Dog Brothers.  The DBMA Association (DBMAA) consists of people who have applied and been accepted by me into the DBMAA.   We have quite a few members of the Tribe in the DBMAA, but most members are not members of the Tribe-- though quite a few of them are working on it smiley

Does this help?

The Dog Brothers Pack/Tribe page has been updated.  Please let me know of any missing or incorrect listings.

Crafty,
  I talked to my Dad today and his leg is feeling much better.  Lots of bruising but he is walking on it.  Also, I mentioned that he got "Dog" and I could tell he had tears of honor over the phone.  It meant a lot to him.  BTW, the tribe list isn't updating for me, is this where the most recent list is going to be published?: http://dogbrothers.com/pages/instructors_thepack.html

Woot!

Gruhn
Very respectfully,

Just bringing this up to the top.

Congratulations to all.

Even though hitting each other with sticks is great fun, it can occasionally hurt.

Special congrats to Rene for holding up the Canadian end of things and for moving up into the tribe officially.

Hey Tahiti Dog (he's moving to Montreal soon). Félicitations sur votre nouveau mode, a bientôt.

Kaju Dog. What a week. Pain and Joy. Know that Sijo would be proud of your accomplishments, Whatevaa!

It sounds like a great day, and I'm sorry to have missed it! This is my last year of coursework on this degree, so this shouldn't happen again. I'm hoping the spring Tribal Gathering will still be in April, because I have no graduate seminars that month. I really thought my professors were going to let me out for a few hours to play!  cry
