Just got back last night from my Euro tour.

Profoundly wonderful to be home.

Folks:

We get about 400 spam bot attempts to register every day so while my wife and children are visiting the grandparents she has turned off the registration mechanism.  While this is the case you may email me at craftydog@dogbrothers.com and I will take care of it.

Last night, I taught some FMA material for the last 15 minutes of class in Sifu Tim Tackett's garage. Sifu Tim had nothing but kind words for you, Guro Crafty, as well as Top Dog.

Hi, I'm a new member here, at the kind invitation of Marc Denny.

My name is Stephen Browne, I'm 61 years old. I am first and foremost a father to two children Jerzy Waszyngton Browne, age 11, and Judyta Ilona Browne, age 6. Unfortunately a single father trying to do best by my kids.

My son's name is Polish, he was born in Warsaw two weeks after 9/11, which is how he came to be named "George Washington Browne."

My daughter is named for Jerzy's godmother, and her namesake, Judith Hatton, now sadly deceased, and a dear friend in Lithuania, Ilona Daukene, who died in the mushroom poisoning epidemic that hit northern Europe some years back.

Judith Hatton was an Englishwoman, the wife of a KGB agent (from SMERSH no less) who defected to the UK after WWII.

Martial arts-wise, I am ranked Dai saam (3rd degree black sash) in Wu-Wei Gung Fu, Recognized Instructor in Pekiti Tirsia Kali, and intermediate to advanced ranking in about a half-dozen others.

In the years 1991-2004 I lived in Poland, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Saudi Arabia, and traveled throughout Eastern Europe quite a lot.  I was elected Honorary Member of the Yugoslav Movement for the Protection of Human Rights in 1997.

I returned to the States to get formal training in journalism after getting some really great stories as an amateur. I interviewed the wife of a murdered dissident in Belarus, and covered the election that brought down Milosevic from the streets of Belgrade.

I'm now paying my dues, starting from the bottom again and a rural daily newspaper in Minnesota.

I love the martial arts, but have not had the opportunity to train as much as I'd like, nor am I 25 anymore, but determined to "walk as a warrior all my days."

Very pleased to meet you all

I wanted to post about my wonderful adventuring Training with the Crafty Dog here in Phoenix. This is cut and pasted from the members forum. Your not on the members site? What!!! Your loss Bro.!! WOOF!!



Woof, Thank you Guro Crafty for a great weekend of training!! It was great to see you and not only train, but spend time with you. .

All, Our adventure was one of a private nature, our group is small and we had 4 of the desert dogs in attendance. Guro Crafty knows all of us, and we were VERY privledged to be able to take part in some of his "Killing knife training" This material is super fantastic, super deadly, super fun to train and SUPER SERIOUS BAD ASS stuff!!! Not for the faint of heart. (seriously)

If ever you get the chance to spend time with Guro Crafty and train this material I HIGHLY recommend you take advantage of this!! Trust me you will be Blown away.
I can't wait to get into this material further and deeper as we just got the introduction version. (which is deadly as h#ll in its own right)
TAC  WOOF!!   Howling Dog

At 61 I pride myself on the fact I can still do everything I could when I was 25.

Only difference is that when I do now, it hurts for days...

Folks:

The Subject line is there for a reason.  If you use it, then it will be possible for people to find your post with the Search Function.

For example, if you are looking for like-minded folks or a school in , , , Boca Raton, FL  wink  then please put "Boca Raton, FL" in the subject heading.

TIA,

I was talking to Frankie McRae today. He's working as the tech adviser on a new TV show. They told him they were sending two MMA fighters for him to train in gun skills. Turns out the two fighters were Forest Griffin and Stefan Bonner!

So, Frankie is teaching them "the Crafty Dog Stance" and FG says "You know Marc Denny? Tell him hello for me."

Even my son thinks this is cool  cool

I heard Forrest Griffin interviewed on the radio a while ago. He sounded like a real sharp guy. Quick witted and good sense of humor.

His book on life in the MMA is supposed to be quite witty.  I looked to buy it in an airport once, but it was out of stock.

Thanksgiving Proclamation
President George Washington
City of New York, October 3, 1789

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor, and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me "to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness."

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be. That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks, for his kind care and protection of the People of this country previous to their becoming a Nation, for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war, for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed, for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions, to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually, to render our national government a blessing to all the People, by constantly being a government of wise, just and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed, to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shown kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord. To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and Us, and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Anyway, so there I was at the gym yesterday talking with three friends: Krzysztof_Soszynski (6-3 in the UFC), Tony Fryklyn (fought Anderson Silva for the title), and Pedro Munhoz (just had his first UFC fight) and it occurred to me that all three were or had been UFC fighters. Today I ran into Lyoto Machida.

A man could go further and do worse.
